This great @annehelen interview with activist Ragen Chastain (@danceswithfat) reminds me of a #MSWL: I'd love to do a picture book about fatness and body positivity with a BIPOC team. If you have a MS, hit me up! annehelen.substack.com/p/i-had-been-h…

Putting this out in the world: I love big “look books” like this & I would love to do one by a BIPOC illustrator focusing on a BIPOC community. If you’re such an illustrator & you love character, scenes, & details, hit me up! #mswl
