Hipster Kids

I drew this a few weeks ago the day after I went to a party down in Philadelphia. After being in art school for 4 years, I feel especially sensitive to the hipster kid mold. I find myself analyzing which ones are really super-rich dissalusioned twentysomethings trying to keep their carefully guarded secret, and which ones are genuinely wacky people who feel they have to look the part. I was inspired to draw a kind of homage to the gobs of hipsters that Philadelphia breeds.

As a side note, I was in NYC this past weekend and struck up a conversation in an art supply store with an illustration undergrad attending the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan. Once he found out I was 'from' Philadelphia he said "Oh, everyone I know from Philadelphia is crazy." He paused "In a good way".
I think I agree.
