If It's Hip, It's Here Has A New Address.

Beginning today, posts will be published at the new if it's hip, it's here and this site will serve as an archive.

The new site is not too different in style from this one, except that the homepage will show excerpts of the posts with links to "read more."

You can now search by category (e.g. architecture, food, technology, interior design, photography, etc.) and the overall look is cleaner, larger and easier to read and navigate. And if all goes as it should, the site should load faster.

IIHIH will continue to bring you original and hip content at the new url.

Don't miss a post by subscribing via e-mail in the box on the sidebar of the new site.

This site will still be here with its 4,000+ posts and all the links will remain active. Many links at the new site still direct you to this one. Over time, that will change.

Please make a note of it, change your bookmarks and I hope you continue to visit if it's hip, it's here daily.

Thanks so much,
Laura

Now go check out the new site

Easter Eye Candy. Art and Pics of Peeps, Bunnies and Modern Versions of The Last Supper.




For years now I have been blogging at this time of year about Easter related art and design. Some of my most comprehensive and popular posts have been sharing modern interpretations of Leonardo da Vinci's The Last Supper, Peeps art and products and Everything Bunny. I have since made large Pinterest board compilations of them, so you can view them all without that pesky informative copy, lol.

Over 115 contemporary and modern versions of Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper:




Peeps A Plenty (all things Peeps):




Bunnies, Rabbits and Hares in Art, Photos, Objects and Marketing:




Enjoy!

An Eggstraordinary Pop Culture Compilation for Easter




Enjoy this special animated Easter video that turns the main characters of popular cult TV favorites such as Game Of Thrones, Star Trek, Breaking Bad and The Big Bang Theory into, you guessed it, eggs. Created by Easy Explain Video, a company that creates animated videos for companies and agencies.



I took it upon myself to create little individual images for each show by compositing multiple screen grabs from the video. Feel free to share them with your friends as Easter cards:

Game of Thrones - Game of Eggs:


Star Trek - Star Tregg:


The X-Files - The Egg Files:


Breaking Bad - Breaking Egg


Homeland - Eggland:


The Walking Dead - The Walking Egg:


Dexter - Deggster:


The Big Bang Theory - The Big Egg Theory:


24 - 24:



Have fun and have a Happy Easter!

Hats Off To Thom Browne and Stephen Jones For Some Seriously Strange Headwear.





Thom Browne's menswear collection for Fall Winter 2014 is both sartorial and satirical, to say the least. Ragged edge plaids, giant fat silhouette suits and autumnal leaf camo face make-up are topped off, literally, by unusual grey flannel and plaid hats and headgear in the shapes of animals. Rabbits as top hats, masks, caps and eyepatches, elephant heads, badger and frog caps, pinstripe bowlers as bears, hunting caps with antlers, driving caps with eyes and cage-like construction. There's even a Bear with a salmon in its mouth as a hat. Designed by Browne, the hats were made with the help of well-known milliner Stephen Jones.

I do not believe the hats are available for purchase, but instead were designed to accompany the collection on the runway. No words can do these imaginative animal hats justice, you just have to see them.

So here they are:






























The rest of the collection is absolutely wild, here's just a peek:
