As a creative, there's something really appealing about sitting in a dark room while churning away at my craft and brooding over perfection. It's no wonder film is developed in a space called a dark room. I'm sure science plays a role too.

So when I started creating work around watches, the dark and moody aesthetic felt fitting. I may not be as moody as the theme suggests, but the theme is definitely a mood, if that you know what I mean. Even if you don't, but want to create the aesthetic for yourself, you may appreciate today's tutorial. Enjoy!
