Jesus, Marilyn Monroe, & Other Pop Culture Icons As Hipsters

If there are a few major lessons we’ve learned in our time at TheGloss, it’s that people 1) hate hipsters 2) no one can agree on what a hipster is and 3) despite the hate, they fucking love hipster versions of regular things. It’s a study in contradictions, really. Illustrator Fabian Ciraolo trades in the public’s weird, amorphous hatred of the great white pejorative by imagining historical figures (Marilyn Monroe, Che, Dali) and pop culture icons (Captain Planet, Dorothy, Edward Scissorhands) in band shirts and suspenders and tattoos.

    Jesus was a hippie, minus the drugs and the sex. :)

    I hope Marilyn is throwing the horns ironically, because GAWD.

    Space ghost wins. All the categories. His pose also seems the most “disaffected”, if that makes sense. Like he’s too cool for school and good posture.
