The Truth About Hippies

When I saw this vintage men's adventure magazine, I almost peed myself. How in the hell did the illustrator come up with this cover? I mean, for real? It's soooooooooo accurate. Every single time I've meet a hippie, they've tried to skewer me with a hook and brand my ass with a peace sign.

Get outta my head, illustrator!


  1. Astrid, are they really hippies, or are they hippies' supposed nemesis and antithesis - bikers?

    In any case, I'd suggest they've been influenced by the real life version of Brando's Wild One - "Wha'd'y'got? - rebel biker, Johnny, and the notorious activities of Charlie Manson's daisy strewn Family cult, who were hippies.

  2. I don't really know. I just took it as a fun opportunity to make a joke about hippies! I have some hippie friends, so the playful mockery is close to my heart : - )
