Not too long ago we introduced you to the hot new lumbersexual trend taking over cities across the globe.
Since then, we’ve been seeing more hipsters popping up all over the place, proving that almost no one is safe from the allure of expensive flannel, manly beards and PBR — not even famous world leaders.
For his illustration series Hipstory, illustrator Amit Shimoni set out to immerse the world’s most iconic leaders in a different time period and culture by turning them into modern-day hipsters.
According to Shimoni,
I often find myself thinking about the differences between these world’s greatest leaders, their beliefs and motivations, and our self-centered generation. The ‘Y’ generation is constantly looking at fashion and style as their way of self expression while steering away from the big ideologies.
The Hipstory series is both thought-provoking and comical, as it encourages you to reflect upon society in a new (and less mainstream) perspective.
Take a look at the pictures below to see the hilarious Hipstory illustration series.
