“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 haven’t managed to catch many of the Oscar-nominated “best films” this year but I made it a point to see the musical-drama ‘Whiplash’ starring Miles Teller and J. K. Simmons. First off let me tell you, this film was pretty intense. There are fantastic performances from both Simmons and Teller and an interesting story that could draw anyone in who wants to achieve something to a level that most never reach.

This film is about getting you out of your comfort zone almost from the start and I wanted to convey that with my design. Getting close and personal and with a title that simply shouts out it’s name, it’s certainly a film to be heard just as much as it is seen.
