Covering the Wild Things

The next issues of Little White Lies and Huck will look remarkably good on your newsagent's shelves: the magazines' covers are two parts of a single illustration by Geoff McFetridge...

The Church Of London, the creative agency founded by Rob Longworth, Danny Miller and Paul Willoughby, publishes, art directs and designs both film magazine Little White Lies and surf, skate and snowboarding style title, Huck.

The forthcoming issues feature Spike Jonze's Where The Wild Things Are in some way: the director is interviewed in Huck (hence he appears on the cover alonside some rather intrusive "wild things"), while Little White Lies is wholly dedicated to the new film, based on Maurice Sendak's children's book (main character, Max, features on their cover).

Little White Lies is published on 31 October, Huck comes out in November.


The drawings make think of Jean Jullien works

Lovely work all round. It's like the two magazines are giving each other a hug. Awww.

It'd be great to see the mags will be onshelf like that, although as they cover completely different topics that seems unlikely.

PS. The competition on the Little White Lies website has closed.

These remind me of the other illustrator that had an article on here, Julien? That's good though, because I liked those, and so I like these! Would be nice to see some interesting magazine covers on the shelves for a change!c I'll keep an eye out for Huck at least from the end of this month!

Didn't realise Huck and Little White Lies were made by the same people. I've been an avid Huck reader for some time now and think it's genuinely one of the most thought provoking and beautiful magazines out there, which is saying something when you look at the other surf, skate and snowboard mags on the shelves.

By chance my friend showed me a copy of Little White Lies a few weeks back and I fell in love - and I'm not even that much of a film fan. Big thanks guys for daring to be different... keep up the good work! Love the covers by the way...
