Wendy MacNaughton

by Sarah Judson January 11, 2016

We don’t usually see a plein air artist featured on the PBS Newshour, but last week they did a spot about NYT best-selling San Francisco- based illustrator and graphic journalist Wendy MacNaughton.

As a fifth-generation resident of the City by the Bay, she has written and illustrated a book about it: Meanwhile in San Francisco, which brings out the people, stories and details that usually go unnoticed.

Trained in social work as well as art, she worked in Rwanda during their first democratic elections since the civil war.

Drawing, for me, is a way of looking at things. It’s like an excuse to look at something that I might otherwise be afraid of.”
