My submission is a series of illustrations I’ve done on tracing paper with pencil. 

Titeled: coexistance

They are all self portraits as I first started painting women and the wonderful female shape to more fall in love with my own. The wonky lines, and the _not so_ perfect proportions are what makes me love the illustrations more, so it made question why I felt the need to be disgusted by my own shape for so long. Art is a therapy for me, and even more so when I can practice it to then become closer to my own body and feel like I am honouring it and it’s wonderful energy it should hold. 

It’s a non-verbal ode to the body that protects you and carries you. To inspire your energetic body, your spirit and physical body to coexist in harmony.
