At the multinational corp, I don’t always get to join meetings where I need to be active. Sometimes, I might just be there in case there is a question for me. So when those meetings are remote, I found a new way to beat the feeling of wasting my time. I draw portraits of my colleagues in video conferences.
They’re still enough to make this quite easy. They don’t notice I’m actually drawing them. And while I stay focused on the conversation, my eyes, brain and hand relax at following these lines.
