H is for Hipster


First of all - I know it seems like I'm obsessed with my coworker, Michael.
I draw him all the time. He's just fun to caricature (I've been over this.)
But as I was trying to draw "H is for Hipsters", I just thought it would be more fun if the hipsters were actually based on real people instead of made-up ones. I just had to draw Michael again, right? He's the only guy I know who wears v-necks and Toms and skinny jeans. It's the closest I've ever been to a real, live hipster. And I should also point out - I still don't really know what hipsters are. I'm not sure how they dress or what they look like but I do know they like bicycles. And beards. So that's something. Anyway, this drawing ended up being loosely based on Michael and his wife Faith, who I'm sure dresses much better than the cartoon version here. Don't judge Faith based on this. And I don't know if Michael and Faith are actually considered hipsters, but I'm pretty sure they're hip...and that's close enough for me.

  2. I know, hoarders would be so great! I had already started this one before we brainstormed on Thursday - otherwise, this might have been hoarders!
