Love Your Body – The Art Movement

Unfettered joy and body love in this one. I feel so strongly attached that I'm ordering a print.

If you aren’t following “Daily Creativity” on Nimlas.org, you should stop reading right now and add this blog to your stream. Not only is this blog the creative corner of @nuchtchas (the artist who made my rocking new logo/avatar), but she has this wonderful art series called Love Your Body which celebrates bodies of all shapes and sizes.

Some of the pieces are quick drawings or sketches made in a few minutes. Others are more time intensive. (Despite the name “Daily Creativity” some actually might take more than a day, I’m sure.) Many created using an art app on her iPad, but there are also lots of old-school drawings using charcoal, pastels, and other media.

What the Love Your Body series does consistently is provide a context of joy. Every picture evokes an emotion that celebrates living in our own skin: fat, scars, wrinkles, skin flaps, and all.  Click below to see a little gallery with my comments. Enjoy!
