Creative Mondays 106 – Home Alone
“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 can’t count the times I’ve watched Home Alone. It’s one of those classic Christmas films and I figured this week I’d experiment with an idea I cooked up based on the film.
It’s probably difficult to tell at this size but on closer inspection (and at full A3 size) the snowflakes I’ve created in this scene are actually composed of some of the traps Kevin McCallister sets up to stop the “Wet Bandits”. All the snowflakes were created in Illustrator and brought into Photoshop as brushes so that I could alternate the sizes and scatter them across the page.
