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.”

This ‘Valley’ or ‘Explorers’ set that I’ve been cooking up over the past weeks has my attention. I don’t want to try anything else at the moment until I’ve got all these ideas out.

This time around we’re going deep under the ice. It’s great to play around with the different textures that each setting has brought with it. There’s plenty more to come, I may take a week off of this stuff soon… maybe.

Another Christmas is upon us and it’s time to unwind, pull ourselves away from our brightly glowing devices and spend some time with the family. This year however, the location for my family Christmas will be a little different. I’ll be spending the holidays under the warmth of the Sicilian sun!

So as a little way to keep that classic Christmas feeling around this year I put together this Winter Wonderland piece, complete with snowman and the Northern Lights! Happy Holidays everyone!

The FWA or (Favourite Website Awards) has been showcasing Flash Website design for over 10 years and was one of the original inspiration sites that I would go to whilst studying at university. Although much has been said recently about the state of Flash and it’s unknown future, there’s clearly an immense amount of talented work going on with the platform.

One aspect of the FWA site that always catches my eye is their wallpaper section. Artists are encouraged to create a wallpaper in any style of their choosing using the FWA logo in some shape or form. With it being so close to Christmas I choose a winter theme for my wallpaper. I’ve submitted it to the site but even if it doesn’t make it up I’d like to be able to share it as something I’ve been working on over the holiday period! Happy Holidays!
