T.O.F.U. #13 | Meet the Artists

Image contains a series of six panels with various colour illustrations related to the thirteenth issue of T.O.F.U. Magazine.

Once again, I was not only lucky enough to find a group of great authors to share their stories related to disordered eating and eating disorder recovery, I was also able to work with a number of great vegan artists to illustrate many of the pieces within the latest issue. Given that I love the art they created, I thought I should share a little more info with you so that you can check out other things they’ve done and perhaps show them some support in one way or another!
