This past weekend they attended MOCCA fest and met with their good friends Nick and Justique, the previous owners of audio shocker. Michelle discussed with Justique about female body image and how it impacts our social lifestyle. Recently, Nickolay Lamm started developing a new doll replicating the “standard paportion s of a 19 year old year,” but, what is “standard?” Does it reinforce idealistic body image?
Michelle and Heather finish the podcast giving The Lego Movie a positive review describing the movie as smart, fun. and bring up that possibly they are conscious of their female fanbase.

We announce that Volume 1 of VACANT is finally done! Also, the online comics school we’re opening will be up soon.
Heather asks Michelle about her favorite chick flicks. Then we talk about why some chick flicks work while others don’t. Sweet Home Alabama gets on the list of movies “we’re not sure why we watch” along with Legally Blonde. Mean Girls and When Harry Met Sally get honorary mentions.

We start off by talking about the online comics classes we plan on opening in mid-April called Comics For Thought. Soon we’re going to have an official website up for more information on how to sign up.
We’ll teach you everything about comics from how to make a character to how to color comics in Photoshop. So stay tuned for more information.
After that, we talk about the possibility of entering the gaming industry versus being comic book artists. Listen to find out why!
Michelle and I finally launched the Comics For Thought website for the online courses we are starting in May. Sign ups start on April 15th though, and there are only 20 slots available for all of the lessons combined. So, if you are interested mark it on your calendar.
You can also, of course, subscribe to the newsletter that will also remind you about it.
If you have any questions, let me know.
