I was talking to my brother about women’s attitudes towards their bodies, especially regarding weight/fat, and when he said “most guys don’t notice/care about that kind of thing,” I tried to explain why it was a lot more complicated than that. I ended up telling this story.
Body image is something that’s so hard to talk about, and it’s hard to express body positivity without sounding cheesy, false, or overly simplistic. But I’m gonna try. This is only my own experience, and it didn’t magically cure me of all my body image issues - but it was a major turning point for me nonetheless.
Congratulations on your upcoming Adventure Time release. Something I have always wondered is when a writer is assigned a job in an established universe what kind of resources are given to them to familiarize themselves with the characters/canon. Is that something you can talk about?
I can tell you that I have watched every single episode of Adventure Time, and read all the comics. That’s atypical, though. I just happen to be a huge fan.
Hello! I love your little elves! I'm printing them up to hang out in my apartment :-). I grew up with a similar tradition (I'm Finnish and Sami) I was wondering what part of Scandinavia your family was from?
My family is Danish! Most of them were from Aarhus. I don’t have much connection to them anymore (my grandparents have passed and my dad and I don’t talk) so it’s nice to remember the little things. The good things.
