If Russell Brand keeps going the way he has, we could soon have a hipster world leader for real.
But in the meantime, Israeli illustrator Amit Shimoni has created this fantastic set of illustrations, depicting past leaders dressed like they were ready for a big afternoon on artisanal foods and craft beers before watching some foreign cinema.
Luckily, many of them already have beards, so that's one thing he didn't need to imagine.
Check out a selection of the HIPSTORY project below and head to Amit's Nuvango page to purchase items with the images on.
