Hope it wins.

This was also our typography assignment.

Many many thanks to ^ArhcamtIlnaad for hosting this work and also thanks to Sander-Seto for suggesting this to be a daily deviation.
I had never expected such a simple assignment to go this far... today I have received the biggest sugar high I can ever get.

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-11-21
From the suggester: Love your body. by *hersheydesai is a lovely and unique text art piece with a good concept behind it. This is what I found when I went to the site from Nowfoundation: ''Hollywood and the fashion, cosmetics and diet industries work hard to make each of us believe that our bodies are unacceptable and need constant improvement. Print ads and television commercials reduce us to body parts lips, legs, breasts airbrushed and touched up to meet impossible standards. TV shows tell women and teenage girls that cosmetic surgery is good for self-esteem. Is it any wonder that 80% of U.S. women are dissatisfied with their appearance? Women and girls spend billions of dollars every year on cosmetics, fashion, magazines and diet aids. These industries can't use negative images to sell their products without our assistance. Together, we can fight back.'' *hersheydesai shows us with his amazing text art piece that he's fighting back and makes us aware that we must love our body.

This one was good in its own way..but didn't get selected as the final one. I saw another one with the same concept, just better typography.
Well, maybe 2010 will be a better year :P

the concept is amazing. the piece is amazing.

but at the same time, I'm not sure I understand why it's a pregnant woman?

:iconhersheydesai:
hersheydesai Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2008  Professional General Artist
well considering the message I had to display, the first thought that occurred to me is how most pregnant women complain about how their body is going to get out of shape due to the pregnancy. They start worrying about the stretch marks and the over inflated tummy..

Just wanted to show that its ok for all that to happen, its not a bad thing.

Besides, everyone else was doing stuff about women using make up or botox injections blah blah..the "usual" stuff in my opinion.
Just wanted to show something different and yet, something that made the message pretty clear.

Yes it is, but when pregnant women start complaining about their body bloating up..that isn't beautiful.

Here you have life growing inside you and you are too hung up with how you look..thats not nice at all. :)

Pendelumpoet Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2008
I agree...to an extent. When I complained about my body bloating up-it wasnt because I looked huge, it was because my back, legs, pelvis, and every inch of my body under my neck were hurting/aching all the time!
