Might Have Overlooked Something

You may have noticed if you're a regular reader of my blog that I have a bit of a thing for The Shining. I love it. It's a nigh on perfect movie and even though it is clearly well loved, I don't think it gets the recognition it deserves. What Star Wars is to the internet, The Shining is to me. That is to say, I feel the urge to riff on it in many ways over and over. My Halloween costume in 2010 was a piece of white cardboard with 'axe damage', taped to my head, so I could replicate the "Here's Johnny!" moment on request and last Halloween, I carved a Jack Nicholson pumpkin.

So last night I decided to create what could be (but likely won't be) my final word on the subject. A piece of art which combines the best characters, scenes, elements of the movie. Sadly, this meant some heart-rending decisions, such as leaving out Delbert Grady, the rotting old woman and... the bear.

But I think, I think this is a decent representation of the film using shapes.

As you were.
