Animal Magic

Artist Geoff McFetridge draws a lot of different things for a lot of different people, but he doesn’t draw dogs, not really. As head of L.A.-based Champion Studio,  he’s sketched on sneakers for Nike, created animations for The New York Times, and designed visual elements  for Spike Jonze’s film Her. He has illustrated boards  for skate companies, made album artwork for bands, and once burned drawings into 2,430 pieces of toast  for an OK Go music video. McFetridge also co-founded  skate brand Solitary Arts and runs his own wallpaper company, Pottok. Whales, wolves, foxes, birds— he draws ’em. So why no dogs? He lives with two rescues—Sweetie and Foxy—and both come hang  in his studio. There’s probably a dog on his lap right now. We spoke with McFetridge about wild animals, the magic of animation, and imaginary friends.

ISSUE SEVEN — OUT NOW

This issue is about the joy of looking from the outside in. We tap into the routines (and peek inside the houses) of human–dog relationships around Tokyo. We ponder the age-old connection between dogs and horses. We journey with a wild mutt from New York to Zurich. We chuckle over poop-scoop habits around the world. There’s a lot to laugh about in this issue. Be it The McCartney’s pics of dogs in heels, artist Al Taylor’s wee art, John Bond’s drawings (feat a puppy pretzel!) or artist Wilfrid Wood’s bloated dog heads. All this, and more, inside the covers.
