The Story of the “Chunkies” art series:
“While watching a Ninja Turtles movie with my daughter, we noticed that despite their strict pizza diet, the turtles could tirelessly fight crime and battle villains.
This is pretty common with characters in other cartoons and comic books — they somehow have amazing superpowers despite eating super bad-for-you junk food. I thought this could be sending mixed messages to kids.
I created this series to raise awareness about unhealthy eating habits. I wanted to show what these characters would actually look like if they ate so much junk food.”
