So I was delighted when I found this - co-authored by two very smart ladies that I greatly admire (I wouldn't follow their blogs otherwise) - when I was on my lunch break today- on sale no less....
In a nice bit of synchronicity - I doodled this while waiting for a meeting to begin this very morning:
I enjoy drawing fat women. I love the way that the shapes flow together - but are clearly delinated. I love drawing big, swooping curves. It's become one of my strategies for 'self-love' *
I struggled with my weight and the associated self loathing for a long time - one of the things that helped me begin to get over it was to draw myself (granted, it's a very cutesiefied version of me) and other fat women.
(I've chopped my hair off since this drawing was taken...)
* hur hur**
** Because apparently I'm bit juvenile...
