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 NINE — PRE-ORDER NOW

In our Spring issue, there’s much to be in high spirits about. We go behind the scenes of Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs, a movie fuelled by dopamine, alpha dogs, and a vast crew of artisans and animators. We hang with a pack of trippy-looking poodles created by artist Susumu Kamijo. We find five mutts who changed history by injecting their human counterparts with a good dose of serotonin. There is plenty of oxytocin going around, too. We celebrate Sulek’s photography of rescued Spanish galgos, Jo Longshurst’s abstract twist on pet portraiture, and Ho Hai Tran’s love of stripes and spots. We travel to Berlin, Toronto, London, and upstate New York to meet creative types whose bonds with their four-legged mates are as heartfelt as they are intoxicating. We ask five foodies to fess up about dog snacks and guilty pleasures that feed body and soul, and we embrace illustrator Apolline Muet’s bear hugs between humans and animals.
All this, and more, inside the covers.
