Fake New Yorker vol. 1 (2nd printing) (2018)
Fake New Yorker magazine, written and illustrated by Baltimore artist, Carrie Rennolds, features absurdist comics, poetry, reviews, and more. Going beyond simple parody, Rennolds' work subtly takes on difficult subjects with a perfect quick witted humor, and expertly achieves a paradoxical confidence in self-consciousness. Although not a work of collage, Fake New Yorker is as playful, culturally layered and anarchistic as any of the historical media works of the dada. The magazine devotes itself to the genius of cartooning and comics—featuring all the subversive power that an illustration has to express self doubt, paranoia, anger, humor and existential daydreaming. Plus cats and dinosaur illustrations.
