“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.”
Oh man we’re in the film season right now! Having just caught Whiplash a couple of weeks ago, I recently got to see Jake Gyllenhaal’s latest flick ‘Nightcrawler’. This film is just all around creepy and Gyllenhaal delivers a career best performance as Louis Bloom, a surprisingly confident and driven character who stumbles upon the world of crime journalism.
I wasn’t going to wait around to create something around this interesting character. I tried a different style from my usual going with some pretty sharp reds and instead of a simple black and white silhouette as I’ve done in the past I wanted to add some more detail to the character.
Seriously check this film out, how Gyllenhaal isn’t in the running for best actor this year is beyond me!
