New website

October 18th, 2009

Pretty pleased with myself today, my portfolio site is finally finished! I’ve been working on it (with endless help from Andrew) for ages so I’m psyched to have it done. Can’t wait to work on new drawings now, making websites is such a snoozefest.

There are tons of photos up there that I’ve never posted before too, e.g. the below.
Let me know what you think!

    FIERCEEEEE KRIS. I’m enjoying it very much. Good job old chap! x


  2. Kim says:

    I know I already tweeted at you, but it’s so wonderful I thought I’d give you a second cheer! I loved seeing the extra photos, too.

    Oh, and I second your snoozefest ‘n’ raise you a back-breaker! ;)

    Gorgeous website (as is all your work)!!! Congratulations! ;)


  6. Alexa says:

    YAAAYYY! Finally!
    I’m constantly waiting for new posts of yours! Your pictures always make me feel really cozy and homely. You have a special talent for making the most ordinary things, like a building or rainy afternoon, extraordinary beautiful – gotta love that! ;D


  7. Laura says:

    Wow, I really love your photos and your new portfolio is awesome!
    My favorite is the 2nd and last photo you posted here :)


  8. Kt says:

    Nice Kris! It flows well, I like the variety of work you chose to show, and I love the girls on your contact and bio page. :)


  9. Rachel says:

    How exciting, I love all of your work (photography, drawing, writing…) i’m on my way to check out your website now, Im sure it will be just as fantastic :)


  10. Samantha says:

    Oh my goodness, the bat photo is PERFECTION.


  11. Jazzi M says:

    Fantastic job Kris (and Andrew!). Seriously, the navigation on the site is perfection, as is all your work.

    I love your site. The colours are crisp and beautiful. I especially love the sketchbook.

    As for the photos they are all amazing, but the last one (of the buildings) is outstanding. It really takes you there.


  13. marta says:

    these photos are awesome, i love the second one, and love your blog!
    xo (:

    Kris, do you do a lot of post-production colour and vignette work in Photoshop, or are those all faithful to the original shots? Not judging you, but I am very curious to know how you get such beautiful pictures if it’s not post-production. :) What camera are you shooting with?

    Hey Ian,
    I do a bit of colour/contrast/cropping/resizing/sharpening editing, but the vignetting is actually from the lens. I use a canon 5d with a 50mm 1.4 lens most of the time. The above pictures are pretty faithful to the out-of-camera images I’d say?

    Thanks for the reply Kris. Love your photos, and the new portfolio site is really slick.

    thank you for sharing

    have a nice and lovely weekend


  16. Candice says:

    I love your pictures! They are a-b-s-o-l-u-t-e-l-y gorgeous!


  17. Diana says:

    I have just found your blog, beautiful photos!!


  18. Jason says:

    Nice work. I wanted to be critical, but the form, function and content are perfect in my eyes.

    Ooh, found one tiny little niggling issue. I’d be a touch happier if the photos/images were to load one image further along than they currently do. But they do load quickly, barely an issue at all.

    Oh, and browsing in Opera there is no scroll bar for the Moscow photos.

    Sorry to be such a nay sayer. It really is a beautiful site!


  19. Angélica says:

    I love your new layouts (both on the blog & the website), I love how they are so simple yet so delicate!
    And love seeing new photos :)
