A short comic I have been mulling over for a while and finally did this weekend. Enjoy!
Have you been watching Steven Universe? Cuz you should!
I freelance-painted some backgrounds for S1E6, “Cat Fingers.” Many thanks to art director Kevin Dart for his invaluable help!
This year’s film characters???? MAYBE????
kind of freaking out over film right now OMG.
Illusions of the Body was made to tackle the supposed norms of what we think our bodies are supposed to look like. Most of us realize that the media displays the only the prettiest photos of people, yet we compare ourselves to those images. We never get to see those photos juxtaposed against a picture of that same person looking unflattering. That contrast would help a lot of body image issues we as a culture have.
Within the series I tried get a range of body types, ethnicities & genders to show how everyone is a different shape & size; there is no “normal”. Each photo was taken with the same lighting & the same angle.
Celebrate your shapes, sizes & the odd contortions your body can get itself into. The human body is a weird & beautiful thing.

This was started a couple of weeks ago, but it was never completed because of the work we have to do now. It’s fun, and challenging work, though. It’s another piece that I’m not satisfied with, but I didn’t want it to be unfinished. These characters are based of some stuffed animals we bought a few weeks ago. :D
