“What is Creative Mondays?
Monday’s are always a drag. The start of a new week, you have to go back to that routine of going to bed early/get up early. If (like me) you have to commute then you prepare for that long journey into work and that long journey back for the first time after a nice two day break.
So to kick off those lousy Mondays, I’m going to get my creative mind flowing in a positive way. Creative Mondays. A chance for me to show off something unfinished or finished that I’ve been working on throughout the previous week.”
This week’s design was a pretty big one for me. It’s been over a year since I posted what was to be my first self-initiated poster onto this site. A Star Had To Die became one of my popular posts (and amazingly still is) and it continues to inspire and motivate always giving me that little push I need when I’m in a ‘designer block’.
I’m therefore really excited to show off my latest in what hopes to be a continued series of “Wonders of the Universe/Solar System” posters. I had been meaning to do a follow up design for a while now and Mars just seemed the perfect planet to go to next. The quotes were actually taken from both Wonders series and I just love the descriptive nature of each. Almost like a slogan that advertises the planet as THE destination to find life.
The red planet has always fascinated me, from stories of science fiction and alien lifeforms to when we managed to send rovers to scout and explore the surface producing incredible photographs of a world we’d never properly seen before . This planet may well be our future home and it could also unlock some incredible stories about other forms of life in the universe.
