THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY

Faye Moorhouse works fast. Too fast, she thinks. “I produce work really quickly, which is sometimes frustrating. That seems like a weird thing to be frustrated by, but I wish I could explore and develop ideas and work for longer.” To combat this, the UK-based freelance illustrator set herself the project of putting together a zine called An A-Z of Dogs. “It forced me to work on an idea for longer than five minutes. Plus it gave me an excuse to paint some dog breeds I’d never painted before.” Moorhouse also paints pet portraits, her own versions of film posters, and illustrations for children’s books and clients like The New York Times. A dog-lover since childhood, the artist often finds herself going back to dogs in her work. “I love animals but dogs just seem amazing to me. They’re incredible animals, so sensitive, perceptive, and intelligent. And also hilarious! I particularly enjoy painting the ugly-looking dogs, or the ones in jumpers.”

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.
