Creative Mondays 215 – The Revenant Poster

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.”

It’s rare that I’ll design a poster before I’ve seen a film but I’ve made an exception for The Revenant. From what I’ve seen and so far heard about this film it sounds like a captivating story and one that is beautifully shot. I’ve taken some inspiration from the trailer here but I was just playing around with some imagery and an illustrative style that I’d like to progress in the future.

Leo’s getting the Oscar for this one finally yeah?

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!

It’s a sad day when someone who has influenced so many leaves us. But there’s no reason for the sadness to be the overwhelming emotion. Celebration of a life lived is also important and like many others marking today’s news of David Bowie passing away I wanted to create something to tribute the artist.

I don’t claim to be Bowie’s biggest fan or know all of his catalogue but I can appreciate the creativity and passion the man had for music and art. Reinventing himself and producing original music for over four decades is something of an achievement not to mention influencing the ‘Glam and Punk Rock’ movements in the 70’s.

And that’s the beauty of his legacy. For what I missed in the past I can still revisit and his music will be able to live on well into the future.

As promised (a while ago), I wanted to get some more Avengers done and dusted for my Marvel Character series. There’s been a distinct lack of female attention to the superhero collection so it’s only right that Black Widow get’s her place among the heroes!

Recently my Marvel Characters Collection has been getting a bit of attention on the blog and as I haven’t added to the collection for a while I thought it would be time to bring in another Avenger and one of the X-Men!

I still have a few of the original members of Avengers to include (a tiny addition coming soon) but will try and branch out to other areas and some more classic villains!
