Remiel's 'An Honest Cosmopolitan Cover' manages to portray his disdain for the Cosmopolitan magazine.

The picture features a Rihanna cover from March 2009 and is severely altered to create blatant truths of the headlines. Remiel has said of his cover, "I’ve been sitting on this thing for almost a year because every time I return to it, I worry Cosmo’s already so absurd, it’s impossible to satirize them. Finally, I just decided to add some “FUCK”s to make it obvious, and call it done."

An Honest Cosmopolitan Cover takes a look at how the magazine glorifies sexuality and mocks it. With the headline of "The Word Va-Jay-Jay on The Cover In Large Pink Letters" shows Remiel's true feelings towards the magazine.
