Hey guys and gals!
I recently discovered Hilda whilst searching pin up images. Hilda is a plus sized fictional pin up girl, created by artist Daune Bryers.

I think she is absolutely adorable and beautiful. As a plus sized girl myself I can relate to Hilda . I know that being overweight is seen as a negative thing (I'm overweight myself and trying to lose weight) but I see Hilda not as glorifying being overweight, but as an embodiment of loving the skin you're in, and that plus sized girls can be beautiful too .
I already have been using pin up artist Gil Elvgren as inspiration for my art recently, but I'm thinking of doing plus sized pin ups inspired by Bryers for a change; starting with a pretty, kind and young version of Ursula. What do you guys think?
