I was having a little bit of difficulty with an illustration I was working on, and starting to get frustrated. I knew I needed to step away for a bit, but also needed to remember why I love drawing. So I decided to have some fun.
I decided to do some super quick illustrations, focussing on simplifying them as much as possible, but in a way that was both stylised and made it easy to recognise the subject. And who better to use as my muses but the plus size bloggers?
I really enjoyed this, and quite pleased with how many I got done! It felt like a bit of a palette cleanser for me, it’s renewed my enthusiasm.
Definitely going to do this again, so many more bloggers I wanted to draw but I ran out of time.
The reception to these has been amazing too, it’s been quite a shock to have been so focussed on drawing and uploading and then to look up and notice my mentions have gone mad. It’s hugely encouraging, so thank you everyone for all your wonderful messages.
I don’t know if any of you realise, but every time I upload an image of someone without telling them first I worry that they are going to demand I take it down. So when I comment and say how glad I am people like it, I don’t mean it lightly. I am always hugely relieved. So thank you my gorgeous muses, thank you so much. x
