(Not to be confused with Lost the TV show)
There are many different aspects of our society that are judgmental and focus on the exterior beauty of a person. This drawing represents the extreme measures one may take when attempting to become aesthetically "perfect". To achieve this "perfection", people may willingly suffer from anorexia, bulimia, or other disorders that will cause them harm or even death. The scale in the drawing is displaying the word "Lost" rather than displaying the weight of the person. The word "Lost" is not only meant to communicate the weight lost by someone, but rather the loss of one's selves.

I love the concept behind this piece it speaks volumes. The type of beauty I've come to embrace isn't the superficial aesthetic kind, more so, the kind that's swathed in imperfections. I think many of us can relate to this work of art. F*ck perfection! Lol!

I like the concept itself. I guess is pencil made. The shading is pretty nice too. In my opinion, this would look even better in ink, I do not know who to explain, ink would give more emphasis, but Is a nice drawing anyhow.
