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 took a break from the concept art style this week and went back to an old favourite. I started the DC Superhero collection this year and I couldn’t continue unless I added a super-villain and what better than the Joker himself? I went with a classic style on this one as that’s the iconic Joker I remember growing up.

DC have some pretty great villains (especially in the Batman comics) and I’ll probably put together a few of the Bat’s main enemies.

I’ve been working on my Marvel Silhouette pieces for over two years now and I’ve had a few requests to branch out to the DC side. With Batman vs Superman only a couple of months away I figured what better way to start the DC Collection than with Bats himself!

I’ll admit I’m not as knowledgeable about the characters in the DC Universe but this gives me a chance to learn about a few key players before the onslaught of films hits us! Stay tuned for Superman very soon!

With San Diego Comic-Con wrapped up for another year, the newest, hottest trailers were bestowed upon the viewing public and fans alike. Like with the Ant-Man trailer I discussed in last week’s post, the first Batman v Superman trailer released did nothing to whet my appetite and I could have easily passed on the film. Thankfully Comic-Con trailer put something out there (if not maybe a little too much) that intrigued me.

I’m loving the metal bat suit and the more I see of Affleck in the Bruce Wayne/Batman role the more I like. Here’s hoping the film delivers!

The Dark Knight Rises Poster

Christopher Nolan’s last in the trilogy of Batman films has clearly inspired artists and designers to create their own visions or interpretations of what the story will bring. It’s motivating to see the ideas and creativity produced by the on-line collective and I too was inspired to create and so I present to you my ‘RISE’ poster. I’ll happily admit that I’m caught up with the buzz about this film (although trying desperately to avoid all spoilers) and I’m anticipating something pretty bad ass. Originally this piece was going to fall into my Creative Mondays work but I decided to push the release of it up to today seeing as the film opens here tomorrow.
