Back by popular demand, Toronto artist Sarah Lazarovic will be live sketching the Opening Ceremonies of the Sochi Games.

(Full disclosure: She didn’t quite make it to Sochi. But she’ll be sketching from the heart of some Olympic-related action.)

Keep watch on this page later this morning as her sketchbook grows.
