Kris Atomic Little Portraits

Just a quick heads-up, today is the last day for Little Portrait Christmas orders to the US. The European and UK dates are also very soon! They are as follows:

1st December – Australia, Africa, Caribbean, Central & South America, Middle East
4th December – Cyprus, Eastern Europe, Greece, Canada, Poland
8th December – USA
10th December – Western Europe (excluding Greece, Poland)
17th December – UK

All orders past those dates will be processed as soon as possible, but may not get to you before the Holidays.

Massive thank you to everyone who has already ordered one and kept me so busy in the last couple of weeks!  Each portrait is a little challenge and I’m having so much fun painting your beautiful faces.

Leopard is a neutral. Polka dots, too.

A little illustrated me that I drew for Boden earlier in the year. Wearing head to toe Boden in all its pattern mixing glory!

I made the instagram-style ~flat lay~ as a colour test, but I actually quite like it. Shout out to Shini the flat lay Queen and my inspiration 4ever. If I could go back in time, I would draw in a marble slab under it all for full effect.

Yet another project I worked on during my blog downtime seeing the light of day today!

I worked with indie dressmaking pattern company Gather to illustrate the packaging for their patterns and kits. I wanted to evoke the feel of vintage pattern illustrations while still looking totally contemporary and showing the structure of the garments accurately, which was a nice balance to work out! Sandra and Caroline of Gather were awesome to work with – there’s this tricky harmony of strong direction and creative freedom which is hard to get right, but totally the sweet spot when being commissioned. I’m especially happy with the colour palettes for these gals too, lots of pleasing complementary shades.

They patterns look super cool and are beginner friendly so check them out! I’m pretty heart-eyes-emoji about the The Buchanan dressing gown, above.
