Creative Mondays 142 – Polzeath Beach 2014

“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.”

As summer winds down, I thought I’d share a few photos from my recent time off. If there’s ever a place to be to take in an awesome sunset, it’s Cornwall. Sun, sand and sea are all I need to unwind, clear the mind and relax.

CreativeJUUS Store is Online!

Store Open Image

Yes that’s right! I finally got my ass into gear and set up a little CreativeJUUS store to sell some of those prints that I’ve been “saying” I’d sell all along.

So prints are the next thing to get into full production and starting off with the initial stock I’ve included two posters from my collection. My Star Had to Die poster and Halo 4 poster are ready to go now and I’m putting a sale on both of those items immediately!

Both posters are A3 size and the pricing will be £10 (plus shipping) until I add more stock.

I’ll be announcing more posters for sale soon so make sure to follow my Twitter and Facebook accounts to catch the information when it drops!

Continuing with the silhouette theme I’ve been working on I thought I’d create another image using the same methods. I couldn’t settle on a time of day so I decided to post up both day/night versions of the old man and goat walking across a rope bridge.

The sun has stayed around for another week and so inspires another Creative Mondays! The heat soared over the weekend and reached the mighty 30 degrees mark. I’m fairly certain Plymouth (and the rest of the UK for that matter) are starting to get that melting sensation as the heatwave continues. Not that I’m complaining though, keep this summer weather coming!

Here in the UK, we don’t always get what you’d call a conventional summer. However, this past week we’ve seen temperatures soar and the need to get outside and soak up those rays of sunshine went high on the agenda. As you can tell by this week’s creation there was one thing on my mind.

I think it was around this time last year that I created my Welcome To London poster, the Adobe CS6 suite had not long launched and I was experimenting with a few new techniques. One of them was the ‘oil painting’ option which I love and have always wanted to use again in a piece of work.

Following a similar theme from that design I created one from the city I live in. Once the sun comes out, she shines pretty brightly!
