Visual artist Juan Alcantara appreciates the zaftig form without apology and displays his admiration in bold and exceptional ways. Even in quick sketches, he captures the innate beauty of each woman he draws. From illustrating comic books to getting magazines ready for publication, Juan worked most of his life as a graphics illustrator. Now, his interests have turned towards painting and drawing the full-figured woman, which is his muse for artistic endeavors.
Juan once told me, “I believe that inside every skinny woman there is a round, plump, full-figured woman just waiting to get out. Or at least there should be.”
