I’m doing a project, drawing portraits of cancer patients, who could so easily be overlooked at this grisly time.
I’m doing it in memory of my friend Tazeen, whose last days I sketched in the autumn.
(Keep reading below video.)
Plainly, my portraits don’t aim to be photographic, but to give a lively sense of a person. (See this similar project.)
I will draw individuals over Zoom (online). It will take ten minutes, at most 15, at a time to suit us both.
If individuals only want my drawing as a digital file – great. I’ll send that. (Again, to be clear, at no charge.)
My hope is that this idea will provide useful “airtime” to cancer during the coronavirus, and support one of the cancer charities whose funding has been so gravely affected at this time. (If you represent one of those charities, please email me.)
If you wish, I can also record the drawing session, in which we chat about your work. The recording will show both of us – me drawing, you being drawn. (See this other similar project.)
