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.

PACK OF DOGS

Have you ever imagined Amy Winehouse or Nick Cave as a Chihuahua, Neil Young as a Vizsla, or PJ Harvey as an Afghan hound? That’s exactly what San Francisco-based artist Michael Gillette has done through his unique illustration project, blending beloved, iconic music legends, both past and present, with their dog counterparts. Pack of Dogs, our first foray into book publishing, is a celebration of pup and pop culture for music and dog lovers alike.

MUTUAL ADMIRATION

LET LOOSE

For his series ‘Compositions and Attitudes’ photographer Hosung Jang captures dogs’ unadulterated curiosity.

GLORIOUS BASTARDS

Built to battle with any and all elements—while looking wildly cool—Bastards is for design-loving humans and dogs with plenty of attitude. 

BLOSSOMING
