Anonymous asked: SHUT THE FUCK UP YOUR BODY IS PERFECT YOU DON'T HAVE TO APOLOGIES FOR IT. Unless your apologizing for having a perfect body and hurting people because you look great then yeah you should.
I don’t want my perfect body outshining the skirt I made, you know? Completely steals the attention away.
No but in all seriousness nobody should ever apologise for their body, I was more apologising for the fact that it’s a picture of me on what is supposed to be an art-only blog - I was too lazy to put the skirt on my mannequin so yeah as great as my body is, it’s not supposed to be on this blog~
Thank you for your concern, though!
Here’s my finished skirt for my American-themed leaving party! It’s the first skirt I’ve made~ unfortunately we didn’t have enough of the striped fabric because it was used to make bunting, so I improvised and possibly accidentally created a different flag but oh well. It’s just supposed to be American-inspired!
As usual, excuse my body.
Sorry I haven’t been active lately - bad back and preparing to move all the way across the pond and all that - but here’s a sneak peek at what I’ve been up to today!
I’m having a leaving party before I go off to the US, and we had some leftover fabric from making bunting and tablecloths, so I’m making my first skirt! Lots of stars, lots of stripes.
Expect photos of the finished thing tomorrow!
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.
I also have other, non-Portal duvet covers available and plenty of other items in my store~
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”.
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!
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…
