This has been my mantra this week. After flying to Cleveland and having a very eventful stay, my fiancé, Taylor and I were at the airport all day Monday to eventually find out that our flight was cancelled. So there we were stranded.
You gotta keep going...
Needless to say we managed to get back, but now my fiancé and I are both sick yet trying to rally and keep moving. So that's where this piece came from. I wanted a graphic piece that would cheer me through the beginning of March.
I thought it would be interesting experimenting with a .gif that created an after image. This flashing electric blue/violet color creates a yellow after image, because of color theory and how your eyes process color. Essentially because the color is so vibrant, just by looking at it for a few moments it tires your eyes to the point that when it's taken away, your eyes believe it's seeing yellow in its place.
I thought that this would be an interesting graphic take for something I created while feeling tired and worn out and wanting motivation. It recreates a moment when your exhausted and you feel like your seeing things, but you have to muster the motivation to keep going. It also represents that moment where you must rest, and it seems that will power has left you, but really it's there waiting to be rekindled.
So get back on that horse and show March what you're made of!
