Seems i am really loving my pencil sketches. Something about the feel of it, make a mistake erase it. Not like life eh?
If you get the chance pls visit
I had the pleasure of visiting this exhibition, meeting and talking with the beautiful woman Cheryl-Ann Webster, She has the most awesome message.

I also love my double chin. Its important to embrace your body. I know its not that easy sometimes, we are taught to criticize ourselves. That perhaps in some distorted way we are not good enough. Millions of dollare are spent each year transforming ourselves. I wonder what would happen if we began to love ourselves. Truly.

crayons make everything better

i started working on this page in the waiting room of a doctor's office, on a grey and yucky day about a week ago (not to be confused with a grey and yummy day. mostly that has to do with temperature and the fatness of the raindrops!)

crayon, found paper, prismacolor, gesso, sharpie, watercolor & gel pen.

she's changed a little since i made her (this is just a detail). you can see a view of the page in progress (below). click, if you like, to go to flickr!


text added, not pictured here:
"and then she smiled at me when i said all i fair i love and war. i didn't know that she'd been thinking the same thing all along."

Fat girl ANg

What an awesome project to be involved in. I created a small signature out of scrapbook paper, gesso on some, not on all.

1st page

A fat girl surrounded by stars- reminding each of us, to shine is not measured by a number on a scale.

2nd page

gesso page- watersoluble crayons, wc pencils

welcome to fatgirl(s)sketch!

fat girl sketch - s001.p01.nicci

s001.p01.nicci (signature 001, page 01, nicci's sketchbook) with detail shots (below).

fatgirlsketch is a collaborative project between Ang and Nicci, two body positive artists. Ang is from Canada and Nicci is from the US. these unbound signatures will travel back and forth between artists, being added to and embellished and generally arted up until the time comes that someone feels the urge to bind them into books. this is an ongoing project with no deadline established. who knows how many books it may spawn!

please feel free to leave us comments here in the blog, and share your thoughts, opinions, or links to your favorite fat art.
