another body-image rant

OK, I am NOT making this up. There is a new body design for our old pal Barbie® called the "Model Muse®" body (see it here) that is literally grotesquely skeletal. Um, WHAT? A Barbie® with actual thighs was too much? Did they look at this and say "THAT'S what we need to sell to young girls!" ??
(And as my sister-in-law observed, "Ken would be sad.")

I am going to eat a donut now. For Barbie®.
ALSO: I just noticed the Illustration Friday topic for today is excess, which fits for this too! OMG! And I just did a blog search for "model muse Barbie" and came up with this and this. All right, girls!!

my children's book

my husband suggested i write a children's book based on my "tina" character.

rain cloud

rejection letter season always seems to follow self-promotion season. lots of completely valid constructive criticism ("keep going!"). but everything comes out cute. i'll never be a lisbeth zwerger. or vince waller (dang). the best i have to hope for is emulating someone who mashed their hands in a waffle iron.
