  • haha! I thought those people looked familiar! Gorgeous work

  • I’ve seen these before, the Heidi/Spencer one is awesome!

  • woow, awesome portraits! I like the one of Whitney the most :]

  • So I take it these are people in pop culture, just who exactly? I’m afraid I jumped off the TV train a few years back.

  • wow these are some pretty amazing portraits.

  • Dean

    HAHA JUSTIN BOBBY!
    but it is kinda sad when you think you know people off tv…

  • m

    these are hilarious

  • Omg that is Justin Bobby!

  • Rebecca

    impressive!
    it took me a second to realise where I knew them from…like I thought they were something significant 🙂 still, these are really good

  • Rachel Mychajluk

    Beautifully executed, especially considering they’re done in chalk pastel. I love the use of a mid tone with added lights and darks.

  • great find jeff!
    great work karin!

  • Pamela

    Wow these are so awesome! They look exactly like the characters from the show..amazing work!

  • its that feeling when you zone out completely and everything in your vision blurs except the image or person you are focused on.

  • kate

    haha this is the funniest thing I’ve seen.
    heidi don’t look like that no mo’

  • lapetitefaon

    OMG!!! I LOVE THESE!!! The Hills is my ultimate guilty pleasure and I don’t know why I’m so amused by these, but I am!

    • I love how you’re the only person to actually admit what show this is from. It seems like it really is a bit of a guilty pleasure. I’m not making fun or being mean or anything, I just thought it was kind of funny.

      • lapetitefaon

        ha, after reading through the comments, you’re right! No one mentioned the name of the show! I felt almost self-conscious typing “the hills” even on something anonymous as this!
