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 EIGHT — PRE-ORDER NOW

In this issue we challenge stereotypes, big and small. Klaus Dyba’s portraits of hairless dogs embrace the bald and the beautiful, Winnie Au’s fashion-inspired photos take the shame out of the cone, and the stellar lineup in Really Good Dog Photography stir us well away from the obvious fluff. We marvel at artists who can breath life into hounds on paper, screen and space. We travel to the heart of Australia, where dogs can easily become a hungry croc’s lunch. We fall in love with the ultimate four-legged bad-asses (we are looking at you, Brian Griffin) and we hang with farm dogs and their hip humans in the rolling hills of the Hudson Valley. All this, and more, inside the covers.
