What I Learned When I Tried to Draw Myself Naked

A great share on an experience written by Sophie Lucido Johnson on Jezebel.com:

“You have no idea how many times I have tried to draw myself naked.

“I’m one of those feminists who came to the word late in the game and is now trying to make up for lost time. I have dabbled in not shaving my legs, buying lots of vibrators, and accusing people of ‘mansplaining’ at parties. (I know I’m boxing myself in by only trying stereotypical feminist activities so far, but cut me some slack. At least I’m trying.)

“Drawing myself naked, exactly as I actually look, and (hypothetically) writing something underneath the drawing like ‘My body is a sanctuary’ or ‘This woman is beautiful outside and in\’ felt like a pretty important feminist activity, since I describe myself as a ‘working artist.’ Really that’s just a euphemism for ‘I can’t go out to eat because I don’t make enough money,’ but it also means that I like to draw.”
