Character Design

Happy to Be Round

Back

Since the beginning of the 20th century, the western ideal of beauty, according to which only a slim woman is a beautiful woman, has spread all over the world. As an alternative concept, this work introduces six well-known female characters with well-rounded figures. The illustrations show the buxom figures in a kind of aureole, surrounded by distinctive features of their character. By means of this tongue-in-cheek glorification and an overall playful, ornamental style, the figures radiate a relaxed attitude towards their own corpulence.
