We’ve been waiting 12 lunar years for this… Illustrator Sum Leung of Woof Models has put a new spin on the traditional red envelope in the shape of six friendly dogs. “Traditionally, red packets are given out in the new year and for celebrations like birthdays, weddings, or a newborn baby,” Leung explains. Her 2018 edition of “lucky money packets” was created in partnership with design agency Studio WMW.
Each envelope features a pup alongside a traditional lunar new-year flower: mandarin, peony, narcissus, pussy willow, cherry blossom, and chrysanthemum. “It’s like a greeting card,” Leung says, “but our packets can be used throughout the year.” Traditionally, each envelope would be filled with money for the lucky recipient. (If anyone’s feeling generous, our mailing address is in the mag.) But, more importantly, 10 percent of every sale goes towards nonprofit animal rescue charities.
We are thrilled to introduce Dog-Friendly, a collection of city guides for dog-loving people, created together with our long-time contributor, photographer Winnie Au, and fellow enthusiasts, indie publisher Hoxton Mini Press. Available for purchase here.

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.
