“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.”
Creative Mondays is all about finding that bit of inspiration throughout each week and this week it came from a film that was met with quite a mix of feelings. I’ve now seen John Carter twice and both times came away from the film feeling that it was a fun, entertaining sci-fi flick with plenty of action and interesting characters. It’s by no means an all-time classic (or a thinker) and some of the acting is weak but I felt the world was believable and the story did enough to keep my attention.
Mainly I liked the idea of creating a copy of yourself that lives on another planet and sending that copy to the distant planet almost like a telegraph. As the galaxy, outer space and generally anything sci-fi usually catches my eye it comes as no surprise that this idea stuck with me and I wanted to represent it in this design.
