These colorful illustrations by Halifax-based designer Scott MacDonald are a blend of hipster-inspired fashion and cartoon charm. The images involve a wide range of characters and inspiration; from meme-like pictures to fantasy-themed action this collection demonstrates the artist's ability to simultaneously stay true to his style while experimenting with various areas of influence.

A small series in this collection includes the sub-title "These Dudes," featuring caricatures of hipster-like figures. MacDonald adorns many of his characters in contemporary fashion. Despite the cartoon representation, the old man with the bottle-ship is clearly sporting a Navy-coat reminiscent of the rise in nautical-inspired apparel.

Despite the array of scenery and context, Scott MacDonald's style is well established and his artwork is a charming blend of both modish and childlike imagery.
