Ames Trevino é um homem que tem feito as delícias dos internautas – principalmente mulheres – devido não só a sua atraente aparência, mas também pela sua paixão pelos livros. Mas atenção, esta paixão não é bem pelo motivo que pensas. Na realidade, ele é um artista que organiza os seus livros por cores e cria verdadeiras obras de arte com os mesmos.

Fã de filmes de fantasia e acção, como a trilogia d’”O Senhor dos Anéis”, “Game of Thrones”, “Pokémon” e “Star Wars”, Ames inspira-se por diversas vezes nas suas personagens para recriar emblemas ou símbolos com os seus livros. Contudo, a sua imaginação vai mais além, criando também verdadeiras paisagens usando-se como figurante, seja numa ida à piscina ou num passeio de barco.

Assim sendo, se ainda não conheces o seu trabalho, convido-te a visitares a sua página do Instagram, que conta já com mais de 167 mil seguidores, onde este partilha as suas criações, como estas que poderás ver abaixo:

What do you care for the most when reading a book (character development, plot, world building etc)? ? I think my views on the subject evolved these past few years. Before that plot was king. Nowadays, character development and world building come first. I can even forgive plot holes if the characters are interesting enough. I can also forgive the lack of action or a slow pace, which is, I think, where a lot of authors nowadays go wrong. In their quest to supply you with WOW moments they forget those WOW moments are WOW because you care about the characters. One of my biggest pet peeves these days is the action opening chapter. Oh God! Can we please move away from that? Especially in fantasy books that require a lot of world building? If you are a good enough writer your characters and amazing world will keep me entertained till the action starts. If not, no amount of action will save your book (that is not to say there are no authors that can successfully open with action – just look at Dan Brown or Rick Riordan; that being said, it is a rare gift). ? I feel this mistake is also perpetuated by the publishers themselves, who seek to turn books into a semicinematic experience. But the thing is, no matter how hard you try, in books you don’t have special effects to distract you from the lack of substance. Paper thin characters thrown in there just to fit a role are becoming a plague. Am I the only one thinking this? ? ? ? #tgif #bookstagram #friyay #theweekoninstagram #book #flatlaynation #flatlaystyle #styleblogger #leggere #amolivros #myeverydaymagic #poetryporn #lifestylephotography #creativelife #livebeautifully #authorsofinstagram #bookworld #bookcommunity #writerslife #bookstagrammer #bookgasm #leserate #bookstagramfeatures #artshub #pursuepretty
