Hipster Art Formula

anthropomorphism + unnecessarily bright and/or unnatural colors + randomly dispersed meticulous detail + creatures oozing things that they should not be oozing= the ultimate formula for ensuring a hipster’s artistic delight.

Here’s some stuff I like that comes pretty damn close to that ideal. Click on the pictures for links to the artist’s sites



This British guy’s art is actually based on a comic book, which you’ll see if you click on the site. He also sells sweet shirts and posters which I one day hope to buy.

    I met Megan Whitmore at one of her shows in Hollywood through a friend of hers. She’s really nice, and her work is really cool. The embroidery gives everything an interesting texture.
