    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.

  • 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.

    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!
