'Chicken McNugget Girl' gets a makeover from local artist

Nuggets: a complete source of artistic inspiration

​Last week, the Daily Mail ran a story about Stacey Irvine, a 17-year-old British girl who "has eaten almost nothing else apart from chicken nuggets for almost 15 years." She was rushed to the hospital after collapsing and doctors suspected her health problems could be tied to her diet, which was painfully lacking in nutrients. 

Since her mother says Irvine has not made any commitments to making over her unhealthy diet, local artist Becky Lang has taken the literal approach to painting Irvine in a new light.

​"I like the idea that she is in the news for being a catastrophic example of the Western diet, but she just has this smirk on her face that says it's all a big hoax," Lang says of the inspiration behind the watercolor. "She looks like she's on top of the whole thing."

If this is the missing piece that will complete the whole look of your apartment (we do think it would look great it your hipster kitchen), Lang says she could be convinced to make 4 x 6 prints. "If enough people want them, I might." Here's hoping this becomes a series.

ZYXQLLABAB I like it very much!


she is not a good artist, so who promote her... look at her blog and also people know you are all connected / cronies so how about you start going outside of your network and do stories on people other than friends.

She works for The Onion AV Club, write for The Tangential and has worked for The Star Tribune... right. Think outside ourselves


That picture reminds me of the title of that documentary "My Kid Could Draw That". If someone spends actual money on that I pity them.
