“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.”
Recently I’ve been working on a few posters/designs in the hopes of creating a series (Superheroes, 80’s Guns…) but this week I wanted to break away from a specific task and just try some creative experimentation. I’ve worked on a few projects where I tried to recreate something lifelike and I had this image of a solitary eye on a canvas in my mind.
Working from reference I got the colours and some of the finer details completed and with some practice I got something I liked digitally. Building up the layers and ending up with something a little more abstract I must have had the word ‘Oculus’ in my head from all the recent Oculus Rift news and thought it would be a fitting title to the piece. Oculus is ‘eye’ in Latin.
