LOOK: What Your Favorite Political Leaders Would Look Like As Hipsters

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.
