These Are The Quirky Body Image Illustrations Of Our Dreams

Girls, drawn how they are.

"I just want to draw girls how they are. Some girls are skinny, some others are fat, some girls have a big belly, some girls have small boobs, and sometimes we appear to have hairy legs, that's just normal."

That's what artist Cécile Dormeau told The Huffington Post about her series of awesome illustrations of women's bodies and attitudes, BLOB.

Dormeau's quirky illustrations capture a variety of body types, and the women she draws have strong attitudes. 

"Showing body shapes is [important], but showing girls' feelings is important for me too," Dormeau told HuffPost. "Frustrated girls, strong girls, gross girls, shy girls, idealized girls, girls who don’t care or girls who say 'f*ck you' with a lovely smile."

Dormeau says that she's interested in the mixed messages women often receive about their bodies.  

"We hear and read everywhere that we should be proud of our bodies the way that they are, that all bodies are beautiful," she told HuffPost. "But on the other hand we are constantly bombarded with fitness and diet ads."

Dormeau hopes that people will see the humor in her illustrations, and that the pictures might help them feel more confident about their own perceived bodily flaws. 

"If my followers can recognize themselves in my illustrations and laugh at them (and with them), I hope that it can help them de-dramatize the flaws that they see in themselves," she said.
