DIAMOND DOGS

Aaron Ruff’s studio sits on the second floor of a converted industrial building in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn. Built in  the 1800s, the space was used as a working factory right  up until 1990. After a period of abandonment, it’s now  re-established as an art centre, gallery space, and artist community named The Invisible Dog. In keeping with  the history of the building, Ruff’s studio (for his now 10-year-old jewellery line, Digby & Iona) is filled with antique curiosities collected over the years. His own work  is also imbued with historical references, and his most recent focus lies in heirloom pieces. From smoky olive diamonds  to medieval cuts in recycled gold, Ruff’s custom pieces are untraditional yet filled with rich and sometimes ancient symbolism. We caught up with the designer to talk about working with salt-and-pepper diamonds while sharing  a studio space with pup Finn and the more docile Nuki.

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.

LET LOOSE

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

GLORIOUS BASTARDS
