French illustrator C├ęcile Dormeau created a series of modern body issue illustrations that aim to address the negative stereotypes faced by women. The quirky images provide a realist insight into a serious social issue through the use of cartoon drawings.

While each image depicts a relevant issue, the cartoons also attempt to poke fun at the problems by silently stating that there is no issue. The ultimate goal for this series is to encourage women to embrace every part of their bodies.

The illustrations depict modern body issues such as shyness, masculine body types and hairy legs. The entire series is presented with cartoon images drawn in vibrant colors accompanied with minimalist text. Each of the images features women who are smiling as they accept and embrace each quirky aspect of their imperfect bodies.
