“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.”
I like to start with a clean slate every now and then and sometimes these simple ideas come about. It helps to get these ideas down as they can always turn into something else so whenever something like this pops up I’ll sketch it down or quickly experiment in Photoshop/Illustrator.
I enjoy using white space and simple shapes to focus the attention and creating the ink-drip with the Pen tool gives you a really defined shape.
I think some of the concept of this was inspired by Sam Spratt’s amazing work as he manages to make an incredible liquid paint effect in his work. This piece could work in a lot of different colours and I’m tempted to try out a few other styles/words.
