Scenic Route

To say Oliphant Studio create large-scale paintings would be an understatement. In fact, Sarah Oliphant recently completed her largest handpainted job:  a 10,000-square-foot backdrop for the Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter 2015 runway show. Oliphant first set up  shop with Adelaide Tyrol in 1978. Based in Brooklyn, Oliphant Studio paint scenic, representational backdrops alongside more muted, atmospheric pieces  for film, TV, print, and events. They have created  custom runway backdrops for a lengthy list of fashion designers, and frequently work with photographers including Annie Leibovitz, Steven Meisel, and Patrick Demarchelier. Oliphant and her daughters Munmun and Violet spoke to us about their love for airbrushing the sky, the collaborative process, and their most important family members, Buddy and Strider.

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.
