Oh Gagliano



Tip your hat to John Gagliano. He's the artist and illustrator who supplied our (now on hiatus) journal of artful essays, Frequencies, with its punkish aesthetic attitude.

For each issue, Gagliano created original illustrations to accompany essays by the likes of Joshua Cohen, Roxane Gay, Kate Zambreno, and many more. It was a lot of fun until Shia.

When we set out to dramatically revamp our website, Gagliano was who we turned to give our site a punkish aesthetic attitude. Naturally.

Gagliano's work has appeared in VICE Magazine and with the Warner Music Group, and he's one of the driving forces behind clothing line, Unruly Heir. Not only that - remember when Anthony Weiner was mounting a comeback to run for mayor of New York in 2013? Gagliano designed the Anthony Weiner hot dog truck that CNN was fascinated by.
