• “What Is Your Work About?” | Exploring Disability and Fatness in Art

    A styled photo of a piece by Jessi Eoin; the art is an inked fantasy illustration showing a fat person resting against a backdrop of large jasmine flowers and several thin rings connecting to the flowers throughout the piece. The person has long, flowing hair, a large birthmark on their right leg, stretch marks, gap teeth, cellulite, and acne, as well as a small mole on their left cheek. They are smiling widely with their eyes closed and their arms up to their chest between their breasts. Their legs are up with the knees bent and their ankles crossed. There is a wooden cane underneath their legs.

    I finally know what I need to write. When I first started out putting together my website and such, all the blog and online shop advice places told me how important it was to create a carefully crafted “About” section that perfectly detailed my work and how it’s unique and special and new and no one else has it and how I make all my decisions that go into my work. I also needed a quick β€œelevator pitch” that quickly and easily explained to people the same thing. I have struggled with that for SO. DAMN. LONG.

  • A styled photo of a piece by Jessi Eoin; the art is an inked fantasy illustration showing a fat person with short, kinky, natural hair resting on her knees inside a big bubble that encompasses her. She has a large belly with a line of hair running up its middle, a birthmark, body hair, stretch marks, a penis, and two canes crossed in front of them. She has her head poking up out of the top of the bubble a bit where she smiles widely with her hands lightly touching her face and posing behind her head. There are lots of small bubbles in the big one, as well as a couple floating above the big bubble. There are flowers and leaves on the outside of the bubble. This person is genderqueer and accepts she pronouns. She is also asexual and panromantic.

  • A full photo of a piece by Jessi Eoin; the art is an inked illustration showing a fat person with Cushing Syndrome with short hair on the left and long hair on the right posing with their arms behind their head and shoulder. They have a snakebite lip piercing along with a large tattoo in the middle of their chest of an autumn crocus surrounded by a geometrical design. Clearly visible, too, are several large stretch marks on their arms, sides, stomach, and thighs as well as their armpit hair and pierced breasts. The photo is stylized with a wooden frame sitting on a wooden nightstand next to a bed made with white sheets. There’s a lovely green plant in a clear glass container to the right of the frame, along with a magazine on the top shelf and pair of books on the bottom shelf topped by another small green plant in a white pot.
