Before Pinterest

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!

Grey ombre

Kris Atomic - Grey Ombre

The other day I walked past this super cool girl with grey ombre hair just like this, fading from dark grey to nearly white. Considering how played out plain old ombre has got these days it was surprisingly fresh looking. Bet upkeep is a nightmare though!

Keep it simple

Warm up drawing from earlier, trying to keep things loose and painterly in digital.
