Houses for Reader’s Digest

These houses were created for Reader’s Digest to go along with the April cover story about tips every home owner should know. They were serious fun to make and we love the way the whole feature turned out.

Fortune’s 100 Best Companies Cover

New cover for Fortune. So glad no one told them we’re still life people 😉

The design is fantastic. Big thank you to Mia Diehl for asking us to contribute. Also thanks go to Hayden Spears for making heart shapes with his hands for hours and to makeup artist/beard groomer Lisa Gleeson.

Reader’s Digest April Cover

Thank you so much Rebecca Simpson Steele for such a fun assignment. Love the way it all turned out.

While it was gray and cold outside the studio in late December, we had this sunny cheerful set to greet us inside.  We’ll post the feature art a little later.

When the top flap on the cover is removed, this is the fun reveal.

Texas Monthly asked us to put people in the dryer

This March, Texas Monthly ran Origami Prunes, an excerpt from Antonio Ruiz-Camacho debut collection of short stories. The story tells of two people who find love/lust in a laundromat in Austin during the wildfires of 2011. A little strange, but still the magazine wanted the art to be appropriate and not campy. We love it when they push us to reach beyond our comfort zone and this was no different.

Before we shot the job, we binge watched all 8 episodes of True Detective. To say we were influenced by the opening credits for the turn page image would be an understatement.

TJ Tucker’s design took it to the next level. Beautiful work.
