It seems like ages ago, but maybe it was only November when Gluekit went to see Band of Horses. Here at long last is our illustration. We actually wanted to do something playful about the Band of Beards but the pretty horses were just too appealing. We settled with some flowing manes.
Gluekit likes shimmery stars and the ending music sequence in Legend!
And one more thing before we forget– Gluekit had an illustration in the December 13, 2008 issue of Rolling Stone!

Happy little triangle families and bright blue dotted shadow paths! It’s Family Day (at the Yale University Art Gallery). Courtesy of our friend the potato print, in conjunction with a nice palette of paint and some fresh brushes.
Gluekit did the Culture Pages opener for New York magazine. Exciting! Helena Bonham’s tresses are nothing short than terrifying in the new Sweeney Todd.
Gluekit loves New York, big apples, and bright washes of color.
Gluekit was really excited to see our work printed in the Sunday Book Review of the New York Times, for a snappy article that served as a sci fi reader’s advisory for various political figures. The illustration was a lot of fun to work on, especially playing with the robots and monsters!
Gluekit likes outer space ideas and classic sci fi imagery.
The above image shows a striking poster tacked up on a bulletin board and designed by Yale School of Art Graphic Design MFA students Daniel Harding and Tomas Celizna, for a talk by Dutch designer Daniel van der Velden. The poster plays with van der Velden’s play with the iconic imagery of the Principality of Sealand.
Gluekit likes those Dutch design lectures!
Literary buffs and biblical proverb lovers alike– as well as renewable energy supporters– are bound to like this clean source of inspiration. It’s a serene shirt promoting and supporting a cleaner, greener, less toxic energy source. And that means blue skies for you and me.
Gluekit likes to be inspired!
Faesthetic #7 just dropped and is now available, friendly folks. Buy it now and check out the reams of great art, including our piece above. The issue is a super doomsday art feast and is guaranteed to rock your world in red, black and white. Isn’t that a zebra reading a newspaper?
Here at Gluekit, we are really stoked about our submission. Honestly, Doomsday was a little dark for us. So after grappling in the dark and at the sewing machine, we went back to our roots. It worked for us, and we hope folks will enjoy the finished project.
Gluekit likes hand-drawn pattern-making, photography, and default graphic design!
Gluekit was excited to be asked to create a cover for the Fall 2007 issue of the RBM: A Journal of Rare Books, Manuscripts, and Cultural Heritage. And here it is!
The issue focused on collecting and documenting the histories of diverse communities, and we tried to create a cover that illuminates how identity is constructed from component parts; it’s through various configurations, and assorted, collective efforts that diversity roots itself and takes hold. Whoo-hoo!
