Have you seen the cult classic movie, Office Space? It is hi-larious. It's about 3 disgruntled computer geeks who work for the boss from hell at the company from hell. As they grumble into their soul-less cubicles on Monday morning the office chatterbox greets them with a revoltingly cheerful, "Sounds like somebody's got a case of the Mondays!"
But here on Artgirl Island, Mondays are different. Mondays are just one more opportunity to be inspired and to create a little bit of art wherever we happen to find ourselves.
So each Monday I'll post something that I hope will jolt your creativity, with the catch being that I'll only use things that I find in or around my office. Once I started looking, I was surprised at the amount of creative fodder that I had been overlooking.
So without further ado, here's your first A Case of the Mondays...Artgirl Island style.
We all have those cheesy vendor calendars laying around, right? You know the ones I'm talking about; they either have predictable nature photos or dorky inspirational quotes or worse...both. I snagged one such calendar off the wall and borrowed the Engineering Department's Pantone Color Guide...and presto, chango...a cool color study in fabulous blues and brilliant yellows.
Bonus Assignment: Take a moment and look around YOUR work space...where is there a bit of color or texture or design that draws your eye, lights you up? Let me know what you find!
