From abstractions of the work of Kevin O’Neill to a vision of life on The Hoop from Halo Jones, the new issue of WIP magazine is taking inspiration from the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic!

The latest issue of the cultural magazine features brand new tributes by leading graphic artists, inspired by 2000 AD and its galaxy of characters.

WIP is the biannual publication by Carhartt Work In Progress, which explores art, music, style, and culture through the brand’s unique lens.

2000 AD has long been a force in British culture, its influence felt far beyond comic books – from music to literature to art and even politics. And this autumn, WIP magazine’s fifth issue original artworks by the likes of Oliver Payne, Ed Davis, Leomi Sadler, Ancco, and Skatething, drawing on 2000 AD’s long history of unique artistic styles and subversive storytelling.

This issue of WIP magazine is now available from Carhartt WIP stores and select global retailers. 

Established in 1994 by Edwin Faeh, Carhartt Work In Progress (WIP) develops its own collections based on original Carhartt workwear. The brand combines authentic adaptations of these robust American archetypes, while engaging with the subcultures that have embraced it. This, in turn, has seen Carhartt WIP place itself in a new context and bring forth its own classics. Carhartt WIP opened its first store in London in 1997 and today operates over 80 locations worldwide. It also has its own skate team and music department, while supporting a slew of artists and releasing various in-house publications.
