Meet the McClanes!

A nice wee post for a Monday here.

Artist Kirk Demarais’ “fictional film family” colour pencil portraits have been all over the internets in the past so we’re hardly being original featuring them here. His site lists the following publications…

Creative ReviewDangerous MindsTotal Film

… but if you haven’t seen them yet, then check them out now at as they’re quite fantabulous.

My favourite is probably John and Holly McClane’s one from the late 1980s emotional family drama (with added life lessons) Die Hard.

Though I will admit that the Torrance family who went on to star in the 1980 reality series The Shining (it was MTV’s pre-cursor to The Osbournes which was cancelled after one episode) look like a lovely group of people to spend a Sunday afternoon with.
