In 2011 I, and a selection of other fabulous Australian Illustrators, were invited to illustrate a lift out magazine produced by Jenny Craig. Each illustrator was assigned a different theme, and I got “big boned”. Taking my cue from my favourite image by Pablo Picasso “Two Women Running on the Beach” , I had fun with the ‘big bone’ theme and naturally had her running along with her greatest fans : a pack of dogs.
I try and approach my work with humour whenever appropriate, and happily I recall that this assignment was quite straight forward, given the potentially sensitive nature of the topic.
It’s been interesting to dig out the original roughs I sketched for this assignment (shown below).
