“Dyna Moe was one of my earliest comedy influences and teachers, and every time I see her work I am equally blown away and jealous that it is not of me, which is something I know I need to work on. I love this book because it shows hipsters for exactly what they truly are: disgusting animals.”
— Adam Pally, actor, Happy Endings and The Mindy Project
“When I look at Dyna’s art, I feel deeply unsettled, which makes me feel right at home. It’s like Jumanji meets Girls.”
— Lennon Parham, co-creator and star of Playing House
"I've always known Dyna Moe to be a rabble rouser and a genius. No one else I know has the ability to take adorable animals and turn them into a subversive and hilarious commentary on modern youth culture."
— Chris Gethard, comedian, writer, and cult leader
“Finally, a book with pictures that I don’t have to feel embarrassed to be caught reading.”
— Paul Scheer, actor, The League and Fresh Off the Boat

As an illustrator, she has drawn for a vast array of fashion designers, record companies, and media in print and online.

Oh my god, I absolutely loved this book. Pardon my French, but I laughed my ass off. I read it aloud with my girlfriend, and it kept us amused from cover to cover. This book is a "field guide" to the different kinds of hipsters. Each one is represented like an animal in the wild, including an illustration and physical traits. There's also listings for things like call, nest, markings, dangers, diet, mating, habitat, threats, spoors, range, predators, migration, prey, and life cycle for these exotic hipster creatures.
The book is divided into sections that include things such as "Food and Drink", "Music", and "On the Scene". Perhaps what is so hilarious to me is that I know people who live up to the stereotype in most (if not all) of the categories represented. My girlfriend would also tell you that I fit into the food and drink category, but she is not to be listened to (sorry babe).
The artwork is really nicely done. It's colorful, and somehow these stereotypes are funnier and more palatable when the hipster in question is turned into a red panda or a moose. It also includes fun little snarky bonuses, such as Parade Hipster Bingo and Draw the Tattoos on the Pinup.
If you know me at all in real life, you know I make puns. A lot of them. Really bad ones. Constantly. To the point of annoyance. I am delighted at the sheer amount of puns and word play in this book. It's clever and hilarious, and entirely up my alley of humor. My absolute favorite of these jokes is a food truck entitled "Bahn Mi Talk Pretty One Day". Just, bravo and well done. -slow claps-
This book also has some great quotes. Here are my two favorites, if I'm being honest:
"With the right attitude, anything can be made into a pickle" - City Boy BBQ Pitmaster
"If a phenomenon is not observed, then it can't be proven to exist, and these shoes are too phenomenal to be theoretical." - Fashion Plate Photo Diarist
Some of the lovely species in this book include the Pho Authenticity Police, Way-Too-Positive Sex Crusader, and the Dandy Mixologist.
This is full of cute, douchey animals, but don't be fooled. This is a book intended for teens and adults. There's language, drugs, sex, and alcohol involved. Hilarious for adults, scarring for kids looking at stoner kittens. So, be aware of that.
I already know I'm buying a copy of this for someone I know for her birthday once it is released. This book is great for people who either don't like hipsters, or who don't mind poking fun at themselves every now and again. Or constantly.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
What's neat is this book also covers varying food trucks, what to buy at a farmer's market, most popular haircuts, and the Gentrification Cycle. The illustrations are seriously so good. Very bright and colorful and very well thought of. Each one helps bring the character descriptions to life.
