THE OBESITY EPIDEMIC! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!
Our own Shapeletarian (yeah still working on a nickname) apricotmuffins — a.k.a. Maria Sumpter — was inspired by Fillyjonk’s Halloween costume suggestion to create this FUCKING BRILLIANT illustration for an article on theobesityepidemicboogaboogabooga. (Edited to add: specifically, it was Patrick Basham’s recent Independent article on how people need to quit freaking out about teh fat — which, unfortunately, I can’t link to at the moment, ’cause the Independent website is being a bitch. Maria’s doing an illustration degree and had an assignment to illustrate an existing article, so that’s what this refers to — not an article arguing that obesity really is scary.)
This makes us want to start a real publication just so we can hire Maria to illustrate everything. Any venture capitalists in the audience…? No?
Happy Halloween, everyone!
