Creative Mondays 207 – Eagle

“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.”

Sometimes it’s great to revisit a style and just create something out of nothing. I’ve been working on a great deal of silhouette work over the past year but most of it inspired by Superheroes, films or even games that I enjoy. Inspiration this week was the blank canvas and whatever I could think of. I think there’s a good series that could come out of this, something I may be working on next year.

As last week was ‘Back to the Future’ week, I wasn’t sure if there was anything that could top it. I tend to post things that are personal to me on this site but usually only in the design sense. As I’ve hit my 200th Creative Mondays post (something I’m damn proud of) I felt the time was right to share my latest creation but this week there’s somewhat of a collaboration to talk about. It will be nine months in the making and most of the work will be done by my beautiful wife! If you haven’t guessed it yet, we’re expecting our first child!

We’ve had the scans and fingers crossed everything is going well so far, it’s such an exciting time I won’t be able to properly express it in words (hence the quick design). So here’s to 200 posts, the constant inspiration, my beautiful wife and our new addition!

Super Blood Moon sounds pretty gross right? I mean why not call it Super Red Moon? Maybe it won’t get all the headlines but I just kept picturing this image when everyone was talking and posting photos of the Super Blood Moon today. Gooey.

Paul Nechita’s Daily UI project has been an inspiration recently, leading to my own Movie Card designs and now a Cinema App concept. I quite like the idea of downloading my favourite cinema app onto my desktop and being notified when a new film is released. Simply opening the app and booking the film right then and there and never having to miss your favourite films!

I played around with a couple of designs, so let me know what you think. Would you like to have a Cinema App on your phone, tablet or desktop?

I have to be honest, Ant-Man is not a superhero that is on my radar of superheroes. Even when I heard that Marvel announced an upcoming ‘Ant-Man’ film I barely became interested and again watching the trailers I was still mostly unimpressed. But cynic I may be, I think I’m slowly coming around to the idea of this character. There’s some decent buzz coming out about this film and in juxtaposition from the latest Avengers film (which I felt was a little too big) this tiny-sized hero may be a breath of fresh air!

So needless to say I’ll check out the film and I figured before I go, why not add another Marvel character to the silhouette collection!
