A Map of Anorexia.

A Map of Anorexia.

This piece was created for a unit of my BA (Hons) Illustration Course at the University of Portsmouth. The unit was called 'Social Awareness' the social awareness topic I choose to create a piece about was Anorexia. I was influenced by the mannerisms of Anorexia sufferers, the guilt they feel and how they try to hide their illness. The outcome attempts to communicate the thoughts and feelings of an Anorexia sufferer as a way of helping friends and family of sufferers better understand the illness.
