When I first met my boyfriend Tim, he showed me a few drawings of his latest project… a movie about a dog who adopts a boy. I'd never heard of Mr. Peabody & his boy Sherman before, but they originated as cartoon shorts that accompanied Rocky & Bullwinkle in the 1960s.
As the Art Director and a Character Designer for the movie, Tim helped to determine the look and feel- and even designed Mr. Peabody & Sherman! It was really important to Tim to pay respect to the original designs, and this project is very close to his heart. Over the past few years, I've watched the dog & the boy come to life, and finally… the rest of the world can see too!
This week, we flew down to LA for the premiere. It was a day Tim's been anticipating for three years, and it was such a joy to see his work come to life on the big screen. AND… it's the 3rd time I've seen it, and you guys- I'm still not sick of it. This movie is REALLY GOOD.
For the premiere, I wore my new Rory Beca dress, an old Target blazer, and my trusty Badley Mischka pumps. The shoes are actually extremely painful, so I was pretty pumped that you get to sit down during movies. Obviously the only person on the red carpet that wanted my photo was Tim, but here's a round up of the flick's leading ladies and their adorable outfits. My soul is a little crushed that I didn't bump into Leslie Mann, but we did get a chance to talk to Ty Burrell at the after party. I'm thrilled to report he's just as nice as you would hope. Like, the nicest.
Watching Tim pour his heart & soul into something so magnificent has been a true honor. I'm sure I'll watch it a million more times and never get sick of the cuteness. Everyone should 100% go see it, stick around for the credits, and give a little "woo hoo" when the name Timothy Lamb shows up. ;)
