Fake New Yorker, #1, Carrie Rennolds, 2018. Limited 1st edition of 143 hand screen printed copies 8 in x 10.5 in.
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.

Curses: The Shift, Gloria Bueno, 2016. Limited 1st edition of 30 copies. Book 2 of 3, 4.5 x 5.75 inches.
The Shift continues Curses’s intertextual, cavalcade of references to popular culture and mysticism, except where book one featured Bueno’s unique cauldron of Salvadorian and Tex-Mex anxieties in relation to Catholic morals, gender inequalities, and a search for answers from a sometimes unsympathetic masculine higher power, The Shift finds empowerment in popular culture and fantasy. Along with La Virgen de Guadalupe, there is a feminist hero and savior in Sailor Moon. Bueno’s writing continues to evoke the work of someone struggling to communicate their deepest fears, regrets, and hope. It’s almost as though we’ve stumbled upon a journal—or glorified zine—completely sincere and raw.
