“My characters are usually insecure and have anxiety about looking good or being fashionable,” Amber Boardman told Juxtapoz back in 2017. “I’m especially interested in how people can distort their bodies to look better but end up looking grotesque. It’s important to note that I’m not making fun of these characters. I have sympathy for their feelings of insufficiency, but I don’t exactly share them. It’s like holding up a mirror to normal behavior. When you really look at something commonplace, it starts to seem pretty strange.”
