We love Alexander McQueen. It was with great sadness that we learned of his passing– he was a great designer and his clothes were amazing.

This is an illustration we did for Out Magazine recently. It features works from McQueen’s Spring 2010 show (this video is awesome), as well as images of Lady Gaga and Avatar characters in Gluekit’s looser watercolor style.

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.
