So, inspired by the tumblr Chubby Bunnies and just…a lot of everything, my art thesis project is based this:
A side effect of fatphobia is the removal of plus sized woman’s sexuality and femininity, and this is something I want to address. This can range from simply always portraying plus sized woman as headless, sweat pants wearing slobs to the extremes of telling plus sized woman that they should appreciate their sexual assaults because at least someone wants them. It is dehumanizing and harmful and easy to slip into our biases without realizing it. With this series of work I want to address it simply and bluntly. No preaching, no bells and whistles, just recognition of overweight woman in role of typical sexuality and femininity.
And for this I need some models. I need girls size 14+ who are able to have someone take pictures of them in poses I will sketch out for them. I need a ballerina, super hero, Disney princess type, exotic dancer, runway model, and pin-up. Possibly more if this is successful. There isn’t any money here, and I am using the pictures for reference, but they will be manipulated, not recreated. But I will be happy to get you photos of any piece your picture is used to help create.
Your pictures won’t be used for anything exploitative or anything like that, and if you have any worry about that hopefully you can poke around my tumblr/the internet and get an idea of me. I also have another two pages of proposal if you want any more information.
If you’re interested, send me an ask!
My art can be seen here at the Artmadillo tag, although most of that leans a lot more towards my comic style, where as this will be skewed towards realism. But to sorta get an idea of where things are going.
Hello all. I’m setting up a plus sized vintage shop called voluptuous vintage. I’m looking for plus sized models to help me get started! I’m based in Birmingham UK.I will be selling clothes from a 12 onwards. Not only will there be genuine vintage, there will also be modern day styled vintage with a twist, and cool things like vintage cameras, paintings, handmade goodies, typewriters, ornaments ect ect.
Best of all, I’ll be happy to ship overseas too!
I am a qualified photographer, so hopefully the snaps will be pretty good too ;)
So if anyone is interested in working with me or you know someone who is, please contact me on my blog http://may-is-the-way.tumblr.com
