Who doesn’t love a plus size fairy or plus size mermaid? Today, our plus size art spotlight shines bright on Blake Inobi, a self taught illustrator!

Today I am hyped to bring you a new artist in our plus size art spotlight series! There is something affirming, empowering, and exciting seeing ourselves in art. Whether it is a sculpture, sketch, or animation- just seeing our silhouettes on display? With women whose curves mirror our own? Whose beauty is seen and appreciated? There is something really appealing and exciting about this! So when Katie (a reader on FB) shared with me her artist friend, BlakeInobi also known as Blake Eason, who does cool plus size work, I knew I had to share with you!

Who is BlakeInobi?

Blake Eason was born and currently resides in Kalamazoo, MI. He is a self-taught artist who has been drawing “since the day I could remember.” While he uses and teaches himself how to work with various mediums, Blake’s work is primarily digitally, but he also enjoys using acrylics and watercolor.

But this is not what we are here for… Focus Marie…

But his work?

If you have been paying close attention to the little bits that I drop, I looooooooooooooooooooooooove fairies. Love. So when I saw that Blake has a collection of fairies AND mermaids? Listen. Inside I squealed. So I had to share his sketches with you! I also have to say, I appreciate his variance of shapes, the rolls and the stretchmarks. I appreciate it. And it was something that I wanted YOU to see, an artist who features different shapes of plus size women, aside from the traditional hourglass shape!

So are you ready to see? Well, let me share!

How fun are these? I wanted to share so much more from his collection and work, but I had to temper myself! But I think I want a picture of me as a fairy and even as a mermaid! Why not, right? There is something confident about his women he illustrates that intrigues and inspires me! I know I cannot be alone here… right?
