Here are a couple of the storyboards I've been working on in the Storyboarding class I've been taking this summer. It's really exciting for me to see how they are coming along. On this project, I'm experimenting with a style completely different than anything I've ever done, and it feels great! As promised, an update on the "eating raw for one week challenge". I am the type of person who does things in a whim, without much research or thought. As an artist, this can be good. When it comes to other things (such as telling the whole world through your blog that you're challenging yourself to eat raw for one week) it may not be so good. Eating raw lasted close to two days. We realized that it takes a considerable amount of planning (which because I do things on a whim, no planning was involved), money (the walnut tacos, even though they were scrumptious, cost us about $30 to make), and it can be uncomfortable in social situations.
The first day of our raw diet, the design team at Aptera went out to lunch. Being the only girl on the design team, the guys usually decide where we do lunch. We went to a place called Wings & Curls...a restaurant completely devoted to hot wings and fries, and I felt silly ordering a chicken caeser salad, sans the chicken.
After Dan's comment on my "eating raw" post, and Carrie's post "waffling:what should we eat?" and the comments that went along with it, I'm realizing there is a lot more to eating raw than just the fun of using a blender to make dinner, drinking green smoothies, and feeling like you're feeding your body healthy foods.
Eating raw may be something we try in the future out of curiousity, but I have now realized that it's extremely tough, that and it may not be all it's hyped up to be.
