Your Body is Wonderful.

This piece was another request from my beautiful friend Mayowa, I’d never really explored the themes of body positivity outright in my work, they’d always been there, but perhaps more implicit, this was a brief to put body positivity, of the real kind, front and centre. I didn’t want to encourage the superficial love of individual body parts seen a lot on Instagram or trashy women’s mags, the message had to be clear, a little humorous and really hitting home that every body is beautiful because it enables you to do beautiful things.

The initial drawing was completed in a life drawing class, and I am really pleased that in practising the art of proportion and anatomy I’ve been able to produce something so creative and colourful!

Your body is wonderful. Because every body is.
