Jeff MitchellPoetry/Fiction Editor/Contributing Writer
Jeff is a 22 year old writer and cartoonist when he's not busy with being a reporter and a student. He's even managed to publish a novel, "The Dragon of the Desert Wind", with intentions of writing all the more. In addition, he enjoys music, video games, movies and experimenting in the kitchen (for better or for worse). He also hopes to further the size acceptance movement and help big ladies understand that they, too, are created equal.
| Artwork courtesy of SSBBW artist Michael better known as Koudelka. He is a 25 year old and lives in Germany. Right now he is at university to become a grafic designer. Michael has been drawing all his life. He drew his first large woman at the age of 12. Later, realizing that he prefered girls with a lot of flesh on their bones he began drawing a lot of pics featuring large women. "I soon found out, that the fatter a woman was, the more I was attracted by her. But this is were the problem starts. Of course I know, that being obese is a health risk and that a lot of SSBBWs are not happy with their size. BUT that is exactly why I draw SSBBWs. The women in my pictures are not suffering from health problems. They aren't insulted for being fat and never feel ugly because of their large form. My women live in a world, where they can be just as fat as they want to be. They can eat everything they want and never have to diet, because they love getting fatter and fatter and grow happier with each pound. I know I can't make the risks of obesity go away. But I hope that someday large girls will be proud of being large and will be accepted by everyone - thin or fat."
