Probably the Greatest Chalk Pastel Drawings of Reality TV Stars Ever

29 Apr

The internet is awesome for a myriad of reasons. This is but one of them. Vancouver-based photographer and artist Karin Bubaš used chalk pastels to render the cast of groundbreaking MTV reality show The Hills for a series of drawings titled With Friends Like These… It’s been almost two years since we’ve heard the lulling tones of Natasha Bedingfield accompanied by the drama and long-suffering looks of Lauren, Heidi and Spencer. Unlike the high gloss of the show, Bubaš’ drawings humanise the cast and make them seem like more sympathetic subjects. Watching The Hills was like a good workout: excruciating yet strangely pleasurable. This year Bubaš will release a book of her pastel drawings of The Hills cast called, To All the Haters. I wonder if they’ll do a reunion show? Like Justin-Bobby said, “truth and time tells all”.
