  • 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!

Watch: “The Junction: A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs”

Here’s episode #3 of our animated series for Red Bull Music Academy, and it’s a peek into the pop culture-filled minds of Fool’s Gold co-founders A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs. Hopefully you’ll find it to be an enjoyable mix of the absurd and the profound (would love to see these two start their own podcast).

The visuals here are a collaborative effort from animator Brandon Blommaert and illustrator Josh Holinaty. The sound design and original music were created by Luigi Allemano.

Make sure you hit full screen on the episode above or watch it nice and big over on Booooooom TV.

Stay tuned for the rest of the episodes! If you missed the first two, watch Episode #1: Chilly Gonzales and Peaches, and watch Episode #2: Kaytranada and River Tiber.
