On Monday, Vanity Fair published the cover of their June issue, featuring Annie Leibovitz's very glamorous cover photograph of Caitlyn Jenner. The next day, artist and rapper Yung Jake took to Instagram to give Jenner the same remix treatment he gave Kim Kardashian, Jerry Seinfeld, and numerous other celebrities and memes in the portrait series that began back in January. Jenner's unveiling was instantly omnipresent across all levels of social media, and in this way, Yung Jake's artistic contribution is a sharp reflection of this—right down to the hundreds of emoji faces looking back at you.
