Illustration Friday - "FAT"


Oh it's been a while, I know. I have missed a few great Illustration Friday topics too.
I love this topic too, though - so ...topical,especially in our celebrity magazine obsessed culture..."Posh Spice becomes size 0!!!"
"lollipop heads" and, my favorite..."BIKINI DIETS - I puked to look good on the beach this summer"..."Whose Bum is This?"

Anyway, this image was for a health article all about obesity etc. I put it together fairly quickly, as I used observed drawings from a trip to Las Vegas (I love las Vegas, but, man, SO many morbidly obese people waddling about, inbetween painfully skinny malnourished women and kids mainlining sugar)

I am feeling slightly self righteous, as I have just had a lovely crab slad for lunch - the diet begins today.
