    I. LOVE. THESE! Subversive. Those mags will kill you. I am certain they contributed to my eating disorder in High School. (Except I wasn’t very good at having an eating disorder, so was never that skinny. And nobody knew. LOL.)

      Hahahaha, I don’t know what was funnier. The word subversive applying to anything that I do. Or your lack of success at having an eating disorder. I am so thankful Amanda that you get what my art was about.
      Love,
      Shalagh
