Illustration Friday - Fat



Can you imagine a health and fitness program for school kids called T.A.F. (Trim And Fit, of course)? It exists here in Singapore, no kidding.

I can't fathom what kind of psychological damage such a tag puts on young children. The person who came up with such a cruel name for a program (it's meant to help overweight kids, anyway) must have thought he or she is oh-so-witty.

Since 'Fat' is such an easy topic to do, I had more than one piece done this week ... inspired by all the scantily clad women in the tropics, who wear whatever is in fashion regardless of, eh, built.

I'd never heard of the TAF programme.... what a dreadful name!! Great illustrations and the second one of the two really makes me laugh. I'm a teacher and I frequently see girls dressed like this, regardless...!

That must be very difficult for the children who have to attend the program, but hopefully it can help them have better lifestyle habits. Both lllos are great - the bottom one reminds me of the girls who walk around schools with all kinds of body parts hanging out...and yes, they don't care if they're fat or thin!

I love your illos. So clean.

1. I hate when people think kids are stupid or something. TAF... yeah, such a smart name. =/

2. Same as Carla, reminds me of schoolgirls showing off.
