And The Fast and Loose Award Goes To…

Me? Really?! Me?! You like me! You really like me!!!
I love that joke.
Here are some boards I did today for my next movie.

When I originally started working at job-job my hand got slapped fairly often for the intensely rendered storyboard frames I would do for each project I was handed. They wanted it rough and they wanted it now. We’d go head to head. Figuring stuff out on the computer and stabbing shots out digitally seemed barbaric. You know me, I love the pencil only slightly more than I love challenging authority. Times were tough.

Slowly, ever so slowly I’ve gotten to this zen spot with job-job. I adore it there. When I’m storyboarding that line from The Three Amigos often comes into my head and I think “Storyboard like the wind!” Haha. We’ve reached this insanely happy spot where I knock this stuff out, they go, “we love it, we love it!” Then we call it a day. See Robert Frost?! Sometimes the path of least Resistance makes all the difference. This has been a big deal for me. It’s allowed me a whole new way of seeing.

Yay for new tricks.

  1. Amber,
    I love to see how you sketch and your story boards. These are so great. Your posts are very inspirational for me. I need to learn to take markers or pencils with me when I'm out and about. I usually take pictures and work from photos – but usually when I run upon some great image…where's the camera?… At home! Hope you have a great 4th of July!

#summerchores This one goes out to @jenmorello ๐Ÿ˜˜ 
#onlyinnyc Reuniting my husband with this one million year-old pup was a highlight on our banner blink-and-you'll miss it trip home. Brooklyn, we'll miss you forever. Thanks @kymberella281 & @peckelmann you made this guy's weekend. Today has been crap, but now it is beautiful. #gofigure Kisses! 
Nature My husband is the dreamiest. I'm pretty limited in what I can eat these days. We've sidelined dairy, gluten and legumes to help with my auto-immune diseases. There was something particularly tempting while we were in Park City this weekend. It boasted its delicious lime salt loudly. Alas, it wasn't anything I could eat. I lamented and went GF/DF etcF, and then quickly forgot about it. As with most things that cause me fleeting disappointment, Matt remembered. Last night when I got home from the studio, I found this little bottle waiting for me on the counter. He made it himself. #limesalt #love #chefwifelife Dragon swimming in a bathtub. We adopted this dishy-fishy in Mexico during the #happilyeveralvarez wedding week of dreams. There are few worldly possessions that bring me as much joy.
