I found this print while I was clearing up a little and immediately thought of Bablu. If you’ve ever been in the Shoreditch area then you’ve probably been no more than 20 metres away from him at some point. He’s easily identified by his love of street art, his shifty but somewhat amiable character and his white Nike Air Force One’s. My thoughts were along the lines of ‘saw this and thought of you’ so thought I’d better get it in the post to him pronto before I forgot what I was doing and moved on to something else.
A couple of stencils and some hand finishing later and it was ready to go. The text in the background reads ‘And the Nikes on my feet keep my cypher complete’ and the QR code takes you to a mystery related link. Give it a try…

The inaugural Hipster Hunt 2012
The rules would be simple. 50 hipsters would be rounded up from the streets of Shoreditch and Brick Lane and herded to the Olympic stadium in Stratford. There they would be hunted over a cunningly designed game zone by competitors from across the globe and the gold would be awarded to the one who brought the most glasses back in their trophy bag. Easy.
After a quick bit of recon to work out where she’d look her best we got her up complete with shotgun and official ‘Hipster Hunt’ poster. Where better but the East End of course. I’m sure she’ll be bagging braces of the swaggering bespectacled try-hard’s left, right and centre. Go team GB!
