Considering the Oprah speech at the Globes and the wildly debated #MeToo and #TimesUp movement statements at the awards ceremonies this past year, I think we’re in for a doozie. And a particularly fun one to draw.
I’ll be live streaming on Facebook Live, Periscope and Instagram. No doubt one or two of them will collapse and go dark when my router shits itself from the traffic, but I’ll be setting up my Samsung Galaxy S5 mini, My iPad Pro and my Pixel to be streaming my drawing board to the world in time with the live CBS broadcast.
Note: I will not be using YouTube this year as the stream crippled my internet, and nobody tuned in on YouTube anyway because they were watching the live broadcast on it.
I’ve watched all of the Best Picture nominees (thanks, Moviepass) except for the one with the peach and the one with Sally Hawkins flicking the bean.
It’s usually a long night. There will be much scribbling, and much scotch drunk. drank?
You can tune in or out at any time to see where I’m at. You’re welcome to screenshot and post to your own social if you see something you like.
I will begin broadcasting on Sunday, March 4, 2018. The show will now begin at 8:00 p.m. EST/5:00 p.m. PST, a half-hour earlier than prior telecasts.
Anyway, for those of you wanting to do the same, or just interested in how I’m doing it, here’s my setup. This is from last year, so ignore the part about YouTube.

"What is Picture This!?"
PICTURE THIS! is a new show from Brandie Posey & Sam Varela: two girls who want to push the boundaries of what a comedy show can be. Picture This! is a live comedy show with stand-ups performing while they are drawn live by some of the best animators, cartoonists, and other artists in Hollywood, CA, SF, NYC and Portland. Picture This! has also debuted in Toronto, New Zealand and Australia! The comedians don’t know what the animators are drawing and the animators don’t know how the comedians will react.
It may be weird
It may different.
But it will be FUNNY!
