Barneys' Illustrator Publishes A Collection of Drawings



    You may not have heard of French illustrator Jean-Phillippe Delhomme, but chances are you know his work.

    Delhomme—who has illustrated campaigns for Barney's New York as well as pieces for GQ—is turning his blog, aptly-dubbed the Unknown Hipster, into a coffee table book.

    Self-described on his website as a man that "frequently appears at Fashionable and Cultural events without being necessarily on the list," WWD reports that the artist—who splits his time between Paris and New York City—is also known for his involvement with Occupy Wall Street, palling around with Marina Abramovic and crashing François Pinault's Venice art parties. 

    Delhomme launched the blog back in 2009, posting daily illustrations of friends, strangers, and street life. 

    Only 1000 copies of the new book, "The Unknown Hipster Diaries," will hit stores this month, while a full-blown exhibit of his drawings will open at Colette this December. Thankfully, if you aren't travelling to Paris anytime soon, New Yorkers can have Delhomme sign their copy at Bookmarc November 15.
