|2/25/21 Friends on Zoom|
When I sketch social Zoom chats, I usually put everyone into a Brady Bunch grid. At a recent gathering with members of a Facebook group, I wanted to free individuals from the grid so that they would look less isolated. I was hoping for a more organic look the way Carol Hsiung sketches her Zoom chats (like this one and this one). But even without the lines, I found myself sketching heads in an invisible grid. I guess I couldn’t break out of that box. (I was pleased, though, that I captured several good likenesses in the group.)
Better luck next time – I’m sure I’ll have many more opportunities before I dump my Zoom account (a day I’m looking forward to because it will mean the end of socializing this way).
