Matt told BuzzFeed:

"I wanted to do an homage to cartoons from my youth with a comment on society. I thought it would be fun to see something I love, cartoons, with something I dislike, hipsters. Hipsters try so hard to be exaggerated and over the top which are the principles of cartooning that I thought it would be a fun series."

And the results are amazing, check it out below.
