HIPSTORY
Typographic Illustration

Meet Barack ‘Barrie OB’ Obama, urban forager and burgeoning ukulele player; ‘Hilly’ Clinton, noted jeansmith and heritage denim brand pioneer; and Queen Elizabeth II, normcore fashion goddess and much-vaunted culture-jamming DJ. This set of 20 postcards re-imagines the biggest world leaders as modern-day hipsters.

I was commissioned by Laurence King to create the title 'Hipstory' and accompanying sub-title 'Why be a World Leader when you could be a Hipster?' in a hand lettering brush stroke technique. This lettering work compliments the amazing illustration work of Amit Shimoni.
