I'm the one

I felt for a long time that I may not be the one to say what I have to say with my thesis. I'm not an activist. I'm not one that likes to be noticed.

Then I realized. I do pinups. I draw women who I feel are under represented in media. I draw big ladies doing fun stuff like reading comics, dancing to records or walking tightropes. I'm already saying it. If I feel that I'm the person who's saying that these women can be beautiful, I can say that this thesis project is showing me, that anyone at any shape, can be beautiful too.

So I AM the one that's going to say it.
I'm going to prove it to myself. And if anyone else along the way gets something from it. Awesome.
