Subtly Powerful Illustrations Highlight Body Image Issues Faced By Women

Polish artist Bartosz Kosowski has an illustration series called ‘Weight Watchers’ that addresses women’s dieting concerns through a series of understated illustrations.

The illustrations feature a woman struggling to zip up her dress, dining on absurdly small portions, and weighing herself.

Subtle but powerful, they highlight the media-induced poor self esteem issues and insecurity faced by women in their quest to attain the perfect figure.
