Amy Ning’s Illustration for the Village Voice

Amy Ning was commissioned by the Village Voice, a weekly 17″ by 11″ format newspaper and website. Village Voice features investigative articles, analysis of current affairs, culture, arts and music coverage, and events listings for New York City.
It was the first of the urban tabloid-format newspapers that came to be known as alternative weeklies, and as such is the oldest and largest newspaper of its kind in the United States.

Amy Ning’s Mythological Phoenix

Amy Ning got her stylus in hand and created this beautiful illustration of the mythological creature, the Phoenix. In Greek Mythology, the Phoenix is said to live over 1400 years when a new Phoenix rises from the ashes of its predecessor signaling renewal or rebirth. Today, the Phoenix symbolizes a person of respect or marked uniqueness.

Be sure to watch for the partner to this image entitled “The Griffin”. It is soon to be showcased in this Fall’s Workbook.

You can see more of Amy’s award-winning art at Folioplanet, Workbook and her artist rep’s website, Liz Sanders Agency.

Hawk Krall Plays a Part in Philly

If you’re in Philadelphia for the DNC, or just curious about the art scene there, you might want to start following one of our favorite hometown artists, Hawk Krall on Instagram.

Hawk took part in a community arts project called DNC Donkeys. Local artists were asked by Artjawn to decorate a total of 57 fiberglass donkeys representing Washington D.C. and every U.S. state and territory. They were then placed around the city at various locations for all to enjoy. Hawk’s states were New Jersey and New Hampshire, so keep your eyes peeled. We have it on good authority you can find his New Jersey donkey at 13th and Sansom and his New Hampshire donkey at 1 North Independence Mall West.

Besides being part of the community art project, Hawk also created a poster promoting voter engagement titled Next Stop Democracy and it’s being featured in an AIGAPhiladelphia exhibition at the City Hall Art Gallery in room 116. Hawk also tells us that there is possibly some sort of “dumpster diver” art event happening there on Wednesday….!

And if you are interested in the local food scene, Hawk knows all about it and then some. He does a monthly column for Saveur Magazine featuring his favorite sandwiches, one of which is, of course, the Philly Cheese Steak.
