What Your Favorite Political Leaders Would Look Like As Hipsters

Source: Huffpo

Being a world leader, we can only assume, takes up a lot of time. So we totally understand that political figures past and present, from Abe Lincoln to Che Guevara to Hillary Clinton, haven't quite had room in their schedules to keep up with the latest trends and adjust their signature looks accordingly.

But what if, in some alternate universe, your favorite politicians took a hiatus from their legislative duties to update their haircuts, wardrobes and tattoo games? Artist Amit Shimoni imagines such a world in his illustrated series "Hipstory." And though they may not be accomplishing quite as much in the way of political activism or diplomacy, we have to admit they look damn good.



Barack Obama

Barack Obama sports a dreadlocked topknot while Hillary Clinton opts for a candy-colored ombré cut. George Washington flaunts an eagle chest tattoo peeking out from atop his low-cut tee, and Ronald Reagan sports a flashy diamond stud.

I purposely did not post the first picture, lest I get sent to GD-Primary again.

2. LOL - Che is wearing a Che t-shirt





JFK reminds me vaguely of Johnny Depp (and that must be a Marilyn t-shirt he's wearing).

8. Ha! That Obama pic is hysterical!

 



I don't visit HuffPost, so I will not be able to see the rest. HuffPost always freezes on my computer, so I just decided to never visit that site again.
