Liz Sanders Agency Talent Amy Ning for Coast Magazine

Amy Ning of Liz Sanders Agency was hired by Coast Magazine to create an illustration depicting what makes life in the O.C. so desirable and alluring. We’d say the laid back life of surf, sunshine and picturesque vistas pretty much covers it!

Gayle Kabaker’s New Yorker Cover Illustration “June Brides”

In response to yesterday’s Supreme Court decision, it seems timely to show Gayle Kabaker’s illustration called “June Brides,” originally illustrated over a year ago. Created as one of four pieces for a contest on the blog Blown Covers, Gayle was contacted by The New Yorker’s art editor, Françoise Mouly, and was asked to withhold one of her pieces from the contest. Before she knew it, a life long dream was realized and her “June Brides” illustration landed on the cover of The New Yorker, the only Blown Covers illustration ever to do so.

Her New Yorker cover was recognized by American Illustration, the Society of Illustrators, Communication Arts, and Print Magazine, and has resonated with many.
