Expect the Unexpected

Coming to work yesterday was torture. I was the girl who gets off the train at her destination and then sits on the bench like ‘ooooh hey everybody, I’m just waiting for my train’. I needed to finish the chapter of the book I was reading. A co-worker getting off further up the train met me while I was getting ready to sit and engaged me in very-Jane Austen-like conversation. Within minutes I found myself having to walk with them as we chatted. Before I knew it I was at my computer, ready for a long day without the few pages of the 7th Harry Potter book I was craving.

At job-job this week I am doing a movie about Forests. I’ve been going through some of our existing assets and fleshing them out in preparation for this new opus. It’s pretty calming work and somewhat dull. In essence I’m drawing a lot of trees to match trees that other artists have already drawn so that everything conveys the allusion of a vast space. I move trees and bushes and then draw some more.

Around lunch in the middle of my “i-want-to-read-my-book” lament, I moved a tree an inch to the right. WOAH! Behind the tree I found THIS!


That’s right. THIS! In true scribble drawing form,
I knew what this was. I saw it so clearly. Can’t you?!

How about now?

Now?

Can you see it now?!!? Oh man.

Can you seeeeeeeee it?!

It might still be a little bit hard to tell, but now….

you’ll have seen his patronus.

You’ll be sure that you have met the Half-Blood Prince in the Forbidden Forest by the Whomping Willow.

So. um. now that i’ve displayed yet another nerd-tacular skill of mine, um… i’m going to get back to the tree drawing and the forest making.

What are you seeing in the oddest places lately?

#LaterGram

Crawling home on all fours after celebrating at the epic Puppy Par-tay my brother and sister-in-law put on for my dog nephew, Milo tonight. It was everything and more, complete with a bone-shaped swimming pool. #dreamtheimpawssibledream 🤘#livewithnoregrets We otter go exploring more rivers. 😍
#lifeachievementunlocked A Mama said there’d be days like this😍
Totally alone in the Natural History Museum’s Hall of Mammals for hours! Hashtag Blessed. It’s 1 AM. Do you know where your mini gummi bears are? 
#fairgame #latenightinthestudio #goodbyeoctober We’re celebrating today. I opened my eyes to Matt  crowing, “Amber! Wake up. They made it!” We have been following the inspiring pilgrimage of my mom @incredimombo & sister @prilliegirl_shakazoozoo via text & @instagram for weeks. They set out to trek across Spain a month and a half ago. This morning they walked their 500th mile and crossed into Santiago. Having read a lot about their journey before they set out to do it, I felt concerned at their determination. The Camino is not easy. It requires walking 10-20 miles a day 7 days a week. You have to carry everything you need on your back. The toll is physical, mental & spiritual. Many prepared and experienced hikers do not make it to the end of the journey the first or second time they attempt it. ☀️ So we’re dreaming impossible dreams and celebrating too. It would seem today is a good day to set out to do the impossible. When we moved to Utah I was sure I’d been too spoiled by my childhood on the ocean and my twenties in Brooklyn, to ever find anything to love in the desert. I fully planned on dying of boredom. I don’t know what I’ll do when we outgrow this little Wasatch apartment of ours! Watching the Sun kiss the mountains goodnight from our tiny balcony is beyond description. This picture doesn’t begin to do it justice. Home again. I'm leaving Adobe Max and Las Vegas prouder of human beings than I have been since kindergarten. This week, I danced my brains out while Mark Ronson dj'd, had Johnathan Adler speak directly to my soul, learned things I've been trying to understand on my own, met so many of my idols and took my art to a level I've been striving for. I marveled at the depth of creativity in the world, (& of course, I saw Britney, b**tch.) Vegas is so beautiful and bright & strong.
