Orange Coast Magazine: Beach Bliss

I recently completed this batch of fun illustrations for Orange Coast Magazine out in Orange County, California. These were for the magazine’s summer beach guide, and the series of articles offered lots of tips for how to achieve “Beach Bliss”, such as:

  • proper surfing etiquette
  • how to score a fire pit
  • how to ensure parking karma
  • how to change at your car
  • how to deal with dirty beach bathrooms

The lifeguard drawing ran with an open letter from a lifeguard to parents about some of the things to keep in mind when bringing your kids to the beach. Art direction by Mindy Benham.
