Last week, someone sent us a link to the Unknown Hipster, a blog by New York via Paris illustrator and author Jean-Phillipe Delhomme, and for some intangible reason we have not been able to close the tab since. With his latest post, Delhomme takes us on a little internet tour of modern art, recommends the Marina Abramovic show at MoMA and ponders the Hindu belief system, all through a presumably imaginary conversation with a coyote in Central Park. And he posted it with the above illustration. That is real blog value. And he does it without using the word "hipster" as a pejorative which has become about as pointlessly hypocritical as anything we can remember. Maybe that's because Delhomme is a little bit more mature. Who knows, but it seems like a good thing.
