On Friday I did a 17 hour Draw-a-thon to benefit my friend Kyle Coldwell’s GoFundMe to get a working wheelchair van. With no pre-planning I drew 33 little images that fit together making one pretty panorama. We raised $1K selling all the original art, but you can still buy a PosterZine of the entire scene. All proceeds go to Kyle’s GoFundMe. Help me help one of my best friends!

uppityfatty:

This is a life-size pre-cast clay sculpture of a naked fat woman. The model is Julie Srika. The sculptor is Ramon Sierra. I think it’s beautiful and important. Breathtaking, even. Two days ago I shared it on Facebook, with the permission of both the model and the artist. Many people responded to it as I did. Facebook then deleted the thread and removed the photo from the model’s account, citing it as being in violation of their “community standards.” Appeals to Facebook have yet to be answered.
I think this is a disturbing anti-art stance, particularly vexing, considering Facebook allows far more sexually suggestive photos and sanctions pages designed to promote bigotry and bullying. Yet an amazing piece of art depicting a fat woman in proud non-sexual repose must go.
So while this is not the traditional fare for Uppity Fatty, I’m posting it here so more people can see it without the small-minded interference of Facebook’s double-standards.

This is something I drew forever ago when I first found this blog, but never got around to submitting it! I found it tonight cleaning out a notebook.

lilietsblog said: can I submit an image that has two girls on it and only one is chubby? or will that not be accepted? should I crop? (it's possible but the composition will be weird) (sorry if it's a stupid question)

That’s a good question! We’d totally accept that, and have many times in the past. No need to crop.

If you’ve ever wondered why your submission wasn’t posted, here’s a few potential reasons why

Not everything that gets submitted to us gets posted, and there’s a lot of reasons why. Some of the most common are:

  1. Subject isn’t fat. We understand that this might be the heaviest person you’ve ever drawn, but they still might not be actually fat. Who is and isn’t fat is a bit subjective, and we tend to be fairly lenient with what we allow, but some art is very obviously of a thin person, and that’s not gonna fly here.
  2. Subject is a self portrait of someone who didn’t submit the image themselves. Listen, we know “fat” isn’t an insult or a negative thing, but individual people are at different parts of their personal emotional journey, and if they aren’t explicitly identifying as fat, we aren’t gonna push them. If you’re submitting a self portrait of yourself, then by all means, we’ll post it.
  3. Image seems to be fetishizing. While we have a lot of nude and erotic art of fat people here, we want it to be respectful and not dehumanizing. Again, this can be subjective, and up to moderators’ judgement, but a lot of it is very clearly fetishizing and dehumanizing and won’t show up here.
  4. You’ve submitted too much. While we don’t want to discourage submissions, we want to have a variety from a bunch of different people. If you submit a whole bunch at a time, we won’t delete the posts, but we’ll save some for later.
  5. The link you submitted is broken. This happens a lot, and makes us sad.
  6. We’re all aware of Hilda, and we love her, and we’ve shared a lot of her already.

And there’s also the fact that we’re more or less a visual art blog, and don’t publish much in the way of essays or articles, very little poetry and very little photography. The lack of photography is not so much a rule as it is not wanting to end up being overwhelmed by selfies and ootd posts. There are lots of other good blogs for that. We’re focused on things with artistic intent, featuring fat people.

Some stuff still slips through the cracks and disappears, or gets accidentally deleted. Sometimes bad stuff makes it through and we apologize for that, too. If something of yours didn’t make it, you can always try resubmitting. And hey, y’all should submit more anyway! Things have been a bit slow lately.

i caught a bit of a breakfast show this morning where they were talking about fat girls posting bikini pictures on social media and the show hosts seemed pretty cool about it mostly but THEN they implied that the only reason it was ok was.. so you could use it as a “before” picture when you’re eventually skinny
like nah man… nah… fat girls are people and not things that will eventually be people at some point in the future. they can take pics of whatever they want, just because.
anyway here’s a pic of a fat girl in a bikini with some stupid blue lighting
