I came across this AMAZING portrait illustration while searching around on Wiki Media Commons a few months ago and always wanted to use it for something…

Then the other day I realised that this guy (from the 1800s) pretty much looks just like 90% of the hipster douche bags that walk around Smith Street in Melbourne (where i work). So I added some black rimmed glasses and an ear piercing and voila… Super hipster douche, or the dapper and beardy fashion trend that people are dubbing ‘The Urban Whaler’.

Personally I want to push every single one I see off their trendy single gear bikes, but a less violent approach would be to just mock them through t-shirt design :)


IMPORTANT NOTE: I did not draw the original image myself. I sourced the illustration from the public domain library at Wikimedia Commons… I could never dream of drawing something so amazing unfortunately… I have simply added a few things to make a funny.
