We were recently commissioned by Vibe magazine to create album art for some of the most anticipated “lost” albums of the last few decades, which included albums by Prince, The Commission (a Notorious B.I.G. side project), Lauryn Hill, and 50 Cent. This was such a fun assignment to work on, since it allowed us to do some really intensive image and typographic research while we immersed ourselves in each artist’s catalogue. Mark Shaw, the art director we worked with on the project, asked us to do a short write-up for Vibe about how we went about making the illustrations, and our inspiration for each of the final four covers. The interview is up here!

Michelle Obama New York Cover by Gluekit, 2009

Last week we created the Michelle Obama illustration which graced the cover of New York magazine. Drawing inspiration from a wide array of sources, including Andy Warhol’s brilliant mid-1980s Interview covers (glamour! kitsch! mood lighting!), we were so happy with the way this turned out.

Atlanta Magazine Illustration - By Gluekit, 2008

This is an illustration we did for the lovely folks at Atlanta magazine at the end of last year. We really loved the latitude they gave us to create this bright piece, which accompanied an article about the craziest news stories, local and national, of 2008.

Wired Magazine "Jargon Watch" (Feb 2009 issue) by Gluekit

The February 2009 issue of Wired Magazine, currently on newstands here in the U.S., features a Gluekit illustration for their Jargon Watch column (Gluekit loves speech bubbles!). We were super thrilled to be asked to do a three-dimensional black and white illustration, which follows along in the same tradition as many of our image projects. Thanks, Wired!

Happy Birthday New York Magazine!

Posted in Black and White, Color, Illustrations, Published by Gluekit on September 29, 2008

One of New York’s most fabulous institutions, New York Magazine, celebrates its fortieth anniversary this week! For their anniversary issue, Gluekit created a collage of some of the people who’ve helped shape New York over the last four decades. Our favorites included Warhol, Jackie O, and that young-looking Seinfeld front and center. Here’s to another forty years!
