The Hipster Wizard of Oz

HipsterHERO2.jpg

The Wizard of Oz will always be a classic book and film, but it's getting on a bit now - the former was published in 1900, with the latter coming in 1939.

So maybe it's time to update it for the current generation, and the people at Shutterstock have done just that, reimagining the characters as trendy hipsters. Designer Jordan Roland has put together a series of illustrations of the main characters with hipster traits: Dorothy is shown putting on her rollerskates and the Lion is sporting a pure Hoxton haircut with accompanying 'tache and (probably lens-less) specs.

These characters wouldn't want to go to the Emerald City though - they'd have their eyes set firmly on the promised land of Williamsburg or Dalston.
