Relay | Real Woman
My response to Elliot’s ‘Real Women Don’t Buffer’ images.
I don’t believe in the term ‘real women’ as it’s being used today, because all women are real women. Unless they’re imaginary women- like fictional characters. Or mannequins. Fat, thin, curvy, flat, dark, pale, curly, straight haired, mums, bakers, nurses, bikers, actresses, models, lap dancers. You name it- all real.
Real women also use makeup, which is why the whole ‘real women are natural’ thing really gets to me- what’s meant by ‘natural’ here is actually a fair amount of makeup expertly applied to look like it’s not there.
This illustration isn’t meant to be expertly done and compiled into an eye-catching piece of graphic design. It’s there to be crude, basic and to the point.
