Gluekit is proud to have created the Celebutantes crest for the popular Random House teen novel series. The lastest addition to the trilogy, To the Penthouse, is now available at fine book purveyors. We confess that we have a soft spot for the three triplets– Lex, Madison, and Park– and their high society adventures. It’s all super fabulous, of course, in the vein of Gossip Girl and Ugly Betty. Just perfect for the tweens on our Christmas list!
We recently did a set of illustrations for New York magazine featuring the famous denizens of Bellevue Hospital, for a feature article about plans to transform the former psychiatric residence into a hotel and conference center. We were asked to create a solemn yet spooky illustration, and we hope we achieved something haunting! This illustration was the opener image, and we particularly liked the way we were able to position Allen Ginsberg so that he’s making eye contact with the viewer. We do believe we spooked ourselves a little with this one!
With Radar Magazine closing its doors, we were curious to look back at some of the illustrations we’ve done for the magazine. This one was an alternate sketch we really loved for an issue opener back in the Spring. It just doesn’t get better than a neon Freddy, Bowie, Frankenstein triple play! (The published version is here.)
Gluekit is very happy to have illustrated the November 24, 2008 Newsweek cover of Obama and Lincoln!
Wowee Zowie! We just love this humdinger of an illustration, which took us into some new vectorized territory! This was an illustration that Wired Magazine recently commissioned for an interview with Wayne Coyne from the Flaming Lips. We really liked his flaming hair and the eye dazzling background. Mmmm!
We’ll wrap up our little stream of Bush illustrations with one that Gluekit recently created for the Washington Post. This accompanied an article that captured Bush’s eight years in the White House through a series of recently published memoirs.
