Zina Saunders

My passion is discovering and revealing the extra-ordinary nature of ordinary people. It all began with Overlooked New York and has grown to include series about politics , working people , illustrators and art directors , Zimbabweans and anything else that catches my eye or imagination (like the Secret Life of NYC Fireplugs).

Zina Saunders has been a writer-illustrator for more than 15 years. In addition to contributions in a variety of periodicals including The Wall Street Journal, Time magazine,The Progressive, San Francsico Chronicle, Foreign Policy Magazine, and The Nation, her client list includes Chronicle Books, Simon & Schuster, Random House, Scholastic, and Oxford University Press.In June 2005, her focus shifted from general illustration to reportage illustration, when she wrote a story for Time Out New York magazine about the Puerto Rico Schwinn Club, an outgrowth of the Overlooked New York website, her series of portraits and interviews with impassioned New Yorkers, which regularly attracts more than 30,000 hits a month. She wrote and illustrated another feature in the August 4th issue of Time Out New York magazine, profiling Central Park portrait artists. Her Overlooked New York series has been selected to be featured in the 3×3 ProShow Illustration Annual No. 4.Blackboard Heroes, her series of portraits and interviews with dedicated teachers across the US, was featured in Scholastic’s Instructor Magazine and excerpts from Art Talks, her series of portraits and interviews with illustrators and art directors, appears in every issue of ILLO magazine and was selected for the American Illustration 26 Annual. Another portrait from that series is in the American Illustration 27 Annual, and five of her portraits have been selected for inclusion in both the Communication Arts Illustration Annual 2008 and the 3 X 3 ProShow Illustration Annual No. 5.Her series of political satires, The Party’s Overwas selected for the Society of Illustrators Annual Sequential Exhibit, as well as for the Applied Arts Annual, and one of the series was included in the New York Times Gallery 7 exhibit chronicling political caricature over the last 40 years.

Zina lives and works in New York City, where she grew up and attended Music and Art High School and The Cooper Union. She left Manhattan in her 20’s to be a levitating lady with a traveling circus in upstate New York, but eventually returned to her senses and her beloved city.

    Love your work, admire your spirit. Saw the article on you and your work in the most recent issue of Communication Arts, (the Interactive Annual 12). I do have a question. Do you get the laughter out of your system before or after you put brush to canvas?
