Live painting in Paris

Kris Atomic x iBlues AW14

Earlier this month I was in Paris for a couple of days for the launch of my latest collaboration with iBlues. It’s the second season they’ve made my illustrations into cute clothes and this time they went for a kind of streetstyle-sporty-luxe vibe. Which most importantly meant: sweatshirts. I love a sweatshirt. The one I’m wearing above – repping all the countries where iBlues has stores – is my fave. It’s made out of this cool futuristic fabric and the print looks ace. I was so impressed with the quality of the fabrics and printing of everything, they did the most beautiful job.

So for the launch, the super fancy store (which is in the Passy area, just over the river from the Eiffel Tower) threw a special event with My Little Paris and invited lots of people to check out the collection and get their portrait drawn by me. There were custom cocktails (an iAtomic among others!), amazing little snacks, a dj and a backdrop with my print and illustrated props for people to pose with. I was totally overwhelmed by how much trouble everyone went to. I spent the whole evening drawing french babes which was really fun and WAY educational (what I’ve learned is that if you’re doing live drawing you’ve got to be FAST). Thank god for brush pens! It was really interesting to chat to the girls while I drew them, especially as illustration is normally such a solitary pursuit. The passing trays of canapés were also a big help, drawing at home without scallops wrapped in bacon just isn’t the same.

Thank you so much iBlues and My Little Paris, I had a blast!

Cara Delevingne by Kris Atomic

Cara Delevingne, shot at the Marie Claire 25th birthday party. Total of three shots as she was running out the door and girl looks flawless. Models, man.

p.s. I’ve missed you, internets.

Kris Atomic - Copenhagen

Back in September I spent a few rainy days in Copenhagen. I was there to help my mum with a work thing, but happily got a bit of time to wander around too. Obsessed with all the bikes obviously, but also met a huge number of amazing dogs and ate some great steaks. What more could you want from a city visit?

Also this is my first post with my Canon EOS M, which I got to replace my Fuji X100. I’m beyond head over heels in love with it, it’s the most amazing tiny little guy. Will do a proper post about it soon.

We rented this incredible Airbnb which was absolutely huge, but also super cozy and it’s kind of a miracle we ever left because I was so ready to move in forever.
