OKLAHOMA DREAMING

The Flaming Lips’ frontman Wayne Coyne is known  for incorporating giant animal costumes and fake blood into the band’s live shows, so it should come as no surprise that the musician, filmmaker, and visual artist is also  a dog lover who feels a special connection to his animals. Correspondingly, the group’s 15th album—a collection of Beatles covers titled With a Little Help from My Fwends— raised money for a local veterinary charity called the Bella Foundation and, more recently, the band backed Miley Cyrus on her latest album, which was dedicated  to the memory of her deceased pets. We met with Coyne at the house of wonders he shares with his girlfriend, designer Katy Weaver, and four mutts, to talk about his dedication to disenfranchised dogs, what fuels his artistic drive, and what it’s like going to PetSmart with a pop star.

ISSUE EIGHT — OUT 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.
