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.

Once Batman was out of the way, it had to be Superman next. Continuing with the DC Comics superheroes, Kal-El makes an appearance in front of his all important life source. If there’s any suggestions as to which DC (or Marvel) hero I should do next, please feel free to leave a comment below!

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!

I’ll admit, Blade was a character I had no real interest in until I saw Wesley Snipes play him all those years ago. The first two films I loved (the third not so much) and I think I’d like to see Snipes take one more stab at the part. Blade was by no means the kind of Marvel blockbuster that we see today but it paved the way and was Marvel’s first box office success, setting the stage for more to follow. He deserves his spot amongst the icons!
