Women are constantly judged on their physical appearance. They are just expected to be picture-perfect whether it is in photographs, social media or even at home. Sally Nixon, an illustrator, has created drawings that depict what women really do when they are home, alone and away from the prying eyes of society. The women are regular and relatable. They brush in the shower and go through a bag of chips while lounging in their pyjamas. They are not posing, smiling and don’t care about there appearance in that moment.

Nixon tells The Creators Project: “They don’t have perfect bodies or perfect habits and that makes them relatable.”

“However my goal with each drawing is to elevate the seemingly mundane to something special and worthy of being viewed.”

Here are some of our favourite illustrations:
