Jen Mussari is really cool. And so is her work. Seriously, you should go check her out. I love hand-made illustrations and lettering like hers. Most of her work she illustrates, scans in, and then colors them digitally. It’s people like Jen that really encourage me to start drawing more, and actually learning to successfully use my Wacom tablet.
My drawing (above) has made its rounds around the interwebs for various bizarre reasons. But really, who doesn’t love making fun of hipsters? It’s also been featured on the very cool blog, Native Appropriations, in a post hilariously titled The Strange Case of the Hipster Headdress. Adrienne makes a great point of showing hipsters who wear the fashions almost accidentally, on purpose but with no reason, and then also with feminist purposes. My big problem with the whole thing is that dressing like a “native” is as much as a novelty as wearing those Kanye “sun”glasses. Go irony?
