Barbie Page

Barbie image

I coloured the Barbie figure that I had previously drawn in the more realistic style like I did with the fruit and veg to see if it would look more suitable for children. It makes it more obvious that it is a Barbie because the colouring reveals it is made of plastic, but it could still be seen as inappropriate and parents might not be happy with this.

I will test to see what they look like on a page like this before putting clothes on them because it really is more effective if you can properly see the figure.

It is definitely far more obvious that it is a Barbie but it is better to be safe than sorry so I think I will clothe them anyway and it should still make the point.

Because I chose swimwear, it still perfectly shows off the figure so it make more of a point.

The image is to show that children shouldn’t aspire to look like Barbie.

The message makes far more sense than it did on the original because I wasn’t quite so blunt this time. I mentioned that she would be very unhealthy rather than just ‘weird’.

I think it is fairly successful because it demonstrates my point and it is also fun because it has introduced a new illustration into the booklet rather than just using the fruit and veg over and over again.
