James Blagden enjoys a good stereotype


Behold, the illustration work of Brooklyn based James Blagden. Lest you bandwagon jumping commenters start freaking out over the above illustration about how Asians are “nerdy and retarded,” Blagden has a series of similar illustrations that highlight the stereotypes of everyone, used for ironic purposes in only the way that hipsters from Brooklyn can be ironic. (And if by “Everyone” you mean White people, Black people and Mexicans. They get their own illustration, apparently.)

That said, I’m strangely proud that our people have a whole font we can rally behind.
