I was recently commissioned to illustratate a story about bone health for the summer issue of Positive Side magazine. The story investigates hiv-related issues with regard to bone density. Bones can be healthy, brittle or too soft… First Goldilocks and The Three Bears came to mind. Then The Three Little Pigs and their houses of straw, sticks and bricks flashed through my mind as a better analogy. The smart-thinking pig built his house with bricks, demonstrating a proactive role in one’s health as the better choice. In this case, regular exercise and a diet that includes calcium and vitamin D can help keep bone density depletion and it’s related problems at bay.
