My illustration of Tracey Wan’s article “Eating Your Way Home” in the most recent issue of Shameless Magazine. Mag.Photo.Food.WEBAs always, read the whole thing… but we are on page 38. As well as a recipe for Wan’s family comfort food.

I have an illustration in the most recent issue of Shameless magazine!

As the tagline says, the article is about , “Why ‘Strong is the New Skinny’ is more of the same”. Karen Ko, a personal trainer and weightlifter, talks about her initial optimism for this new message and her eventual disappointment in discovering that “Strength” as advertised, is just another impossible ideal; one that continues to ignore queerness, women of colour, motherhood, older women, and trans-identified people.

I feel like Ko addresses a lot of the questions that don’t get included in conversations about women’s fitness and body image. But don’t take MY word for it. Check out the new issue of Shameless (subscribe online… there’s an app too!) – read the whole thing of course… but Karen Ko and I are on page 13.
