3 PHASES OF MONDAY


Art work by Chinese illustrator Niko Edwards

Let's face it! It's Monday... again! 
With a wink of an eye, these illustrations by Niko Edwards could similarly express the so called 3 Phases of Monday: 
1. Denial & Anger 
2. Bargaining & Depression
3. Acceptance

 Can you identify yourself to my questionable analysis? :) 

Did I mention I'm still obsessed with lines and symmetry?!

    Have a lovely week :-)

  19. Definitely! But 1 is the larger part of my day. I think acceptance doesn't come until at least I've had supper! Hope you had a great Monday dear!

  33. Haha so true! Mondays are always difficult, and with my school schedule, typically I end up with an insane work amount. This week isn't looking too bad, though I do have 30 artworks to memorize :/

  38. I did notice your style in this Ira with the lines and symmetry. That's so cool! I don't really feel myself in any of these phases right now, but I've felt them probably on some Mondays I suspect or other. Have a fun week!
