Kris Atomic

Another one from the vault (aka my Work-in-Progress-Unfinished-Personal folder) today. I posted the sketch of this literally two years ago, but never got anywhere with the final because I couldn’t find a way of rendering the glitter in a pleasing way. Gave it another go today and quite thrilled with the glittery outcome (the Pixelate > Crystallize filter in Photoshop if you’re wondering). Now I just have to resist the temptation to glitter everything else.

Still love these Miu Mius so much, two whole years on.

Kris Atomic Circus Training

Ages ago I was talking to my mum and misheard her saying that she was going to circuit training (at the gym) as “circus training” which lead to the rough sketch that eventually lead to this. I know which one I’d rather do!

Kris Atomic Magazine Collages

I love me a bit of Pinterest as much as anyone (you can follow my boards here, yo) but I came across these old scrapbooks of mine and got a bit nostalgic for some actual cutting and pasting. Hard to date these now, but I would guess they’re from at least three years ago based on the last time I can remember sticking stuff in. I’d go through all my magazines and tear out images I liked every few months, then faff about arranging them moodboard-style in these A3 sketchbooks. Nowadays I read (far, far fewer) magazines on my ipad and do most of my collecting on Pinterest or in Dropmark without even touching a piece of paper or pair of scissors in the process. Technology!
