This was a personal illustration we created for ourselves back in the day. We’ve been posting a lot of client work lately and thought it might be nice to break up the flow with something a little different. We like owls and pretty white winter wolves against starry skies! Hoot hoot!
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.)
Here’s a sketch Gluekit did for an assignment last month about the Federal Treasury being in danger due to a number of circumstances as the U.S. economy plummets further into the twilight zone. This ended up being a little too playful for the client, but we really loved the drama and the sci-fi flavor of the piece.
Here’s a sketch Gluekit created for a recent cover of Ode, a Dutch magazine that began publishing in the United State a few years ago and focuses on news about positive actions being taken around the world. The idea was to create a central Gandhi figure in the foreground and fill the background with celebs following in his footsteps and a raucous crowd of supporters.
Gluekit loves covers and the thrill of possibilities.
The title pretty much says it all. This is a she-monster though. There’s also a nice sketch of a he-monster wearing the nice warm scarf she’s a-knitting, but that’s for another post on another day.
Gluekit likes notebook dreaming and scribbling droll images during excruciating long plane delays!
Preliminary drawing for a New York Times Book Review illustration for “God’s Harvard: A Christian College on a Mission to Save America,” a new book by Hanna Rosin. Surprise fact: Rosin was played by Chloe Sevigny in the movie Shattered Glass, about the New Republic’s fallen angel, Stephen Glass!
We like six degrees of separation games.
Tigers go grrr! And we like just-happened-by-accident collages and the backsides of designs showing through.
We like black and white.
