Some of the detail is lost in the smaller version.

“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’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!
