Abbi's Art Blog

This is a blog for all of my art, whether it be work for university or my own work. A whole range from cartoon doodles to full-on realism. I will be uploading life drawings, too, which will contain nudity so some posts may be nsfw.

Anonymous asked: So instead of people saying your not fat you want them to tell you that your are fat (but beautiful)?

Preferably fat and beautiful, because the ‘but’ implies that you’re beautiful despite being fat, which isn’t the best message.

I’m not saying that everyone should go around calling everyone fat. Because of internalised fatphobia, that would upset more people than it pleased. What I’m saying is that we should stop essentially telling people that they can only be either fat or beautiful - that the two can’t go together. Saying ‘no, sweetie, you’re not fat, you’re beautiful’ is essentially saying that you can’t be both, which is something we’ve been told all our lives and need to unlearn.

I hope that answers your question! Sorry, I’m an artist, not a writer or someone who is very good at speaking for everyone.

And I have now finished the fat positive drawing! I’m quite pleased with it.
This is to remind people that the word fat is not a negative term, and shouldn’t be treated as an insult. I hope you can all remember that, and I hope it helps some people to know that fat is not a bad word. Maybe it’ll stop people from calling themselves fat in a negative way, or saying to someone “no, you’re not fat, you’re beautiful!” when they should probably be saying “yes, you are fat, and you’re beautiful”.
This artwork is also available on my Society6 (with free shipping and $5 off until midnight PST), and Redbubble, so spread the positivity!

I’m so pleased to see this get ten thousand notes! This is incredible, especially since the most notes I usually get is maybe a couple of hundred, and I’m so so glad to see this message being spread around and know that it has inspired people. Thank you so much!

Would anyone be interested in buying prints from me?

I have a lot of prints from when I made my portfolios for university applications and I thought I could sell them. If you want to see examples of the work I have printed, most of the stuff on my flickr is available (some may be nsfw as I have life drawings posted there), plus a bunch of pieces you will have seen on this blog. I was just wondering if anybody would be interested in that kind of thing?

Colour palette request for cutefatbabepassion! She’s so pretty and my drawing does not do her justice (I’m so sorry I’m struggling to draw right now so this isn’t my best)
A very difficult palette to work with, I must say! I kept swapping around the colours for ages before I was (vaguely) happy with it. But I was glad to have the opportunity to draw someone so gorgeous…
