Some days you are just meant to be creative… I think yesterday was that day for me. I saw that Erik Johansson released a new composition, and it sparked a wave of creativity within me. I discovered Erik’s work via Adobe Max this year – his presentation was awesome and very inspiring. Seriously, do yourself a favor and go watch it.

Now, go get Photoshop, and Enjoy!
