Natalie Perkins is an amazingly talented artist - and I was so excited to see her sketches of some of my pieces! And on wonderfully curvy girls nevertheless, I feel like there is a new life in them.
Natalie's blog is one I highly recommend - http://www.definatalie.com/ - she posts very thought provoking topics amongst wonderfully pretty illustrations such as these. She has made me question many of my preconceived attitudes about body image, and I really do wish her every strength in her battle against mainstream conceptions of beauty. Beauty truly does come in all shapes and sizes.
And just for a shameless plug too - I might also take this chance to remind everyone that all Hopeless pieces are made to order - if you don't find yourself amongst the measurements listed in my shop - email me. I am more than happy to create anything to your measurements :)
