As a designer..I tend to go with the flow when it comes to choosing slim models for my illustrations.. I try to justify myself saying they are fashionable and healthy! However..few of us can really say they have a "super model look" which is just a product of photoshop retouched photographs and a lot of makeup, most of us are of normal weight and sometimes heavier appearence. So are we giving the wrong image to girls? saying your only gonna be sexy and apealing If your skinny? I think not..I think beauty comes from within..at the true beauty isn't physical, is of feelings and character.. and that can't be changed by time..it grows with you!

I agree with your manifesto for this week's theme. Then again, I come from an era when the sex symbols were curvier. I might've been 5 at the tail end of that era, but still ...

Driving around your alternative URLs show a wide range of talent. Keep up the good work.

(And thanks for your kind words!)

Excellent piece. About your job, it must feel wierd to be feeding the machine that is spewing out a message you don't agree with. But such is life.

I think Miss Rejected is very much the sexier of the two. As someone who was once slim but added some pounds I'll point out that one of the benefits of gaining a few pounds is that your bust size increases too! No surgery needed.
