OMMIDOGS ON SHOW

In our Issue SixMichael Gillette’s pack of Omnidogs bounded onto the page. Uncanny and oddly regal, these half-dog, half-celebrities represent the endless possibilities of the alternative multiverse and, also, how the notion of celebrity perpetuates our need for stories. Gillette has contributed to magazines such as Q, The New Yorker, Spin and Mojo, while also turning his artistic hand on posters and albums for Saint Etienne, Elastica, Beck, MGMT, The Beastie Boys, and Paul McCartney.

After finding a box of dog cards from the 1960s in a local Goodwill, Gillette was inspired to give these dogs a new lease of life via reinterpretation. You can find the indignant expression of the faithful Chihuahua reimagined as Amy Winehouse and David Bowie—refrain from puns such as Whinehouse and Bow-wow-ie —or Elvis Presley reimagined into a forlorn looking English bulldog. You can now find Gillette’s pack in place at Luna Rienne Gallery in his hometown of San Francisco. Come by for the special opening night, 6pm until 9pm on March 24. 10% of the opening night sales will be donated to Muttville, a charity that rehomes elderly dogs.

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.
