ARTIST OF THE MONTH
This month's artist of the month is Michael. Michael has done the wonderful artwork you see on most of our pages. You can visit his gallery at Deviant Art.
SSBBW Magazine: What is your name?
Artist: My name is Michael better known as Koudelka
SSBBW Magazine: How old are you?
Artist: I am 25 years old
SSBBW Magazine: Where do you live?
SSBBW Magazine: What do you do?
Artist: Right now I am at university to become a grafic designer.
SSBBW Magazine: How long have you been drawing?
Artist: I was drawing all my life. I guess I drew my first pic with 1 year or so.
SSBBW Magazine: How long have you been drawing BBWs/SSBBWs?
Artist: I guess my first fat woman I drew with 12. Then I realized, that I prefered girls with a lot of flab on their bones. From that day I was drawing a lot of pics featuring fat women.
SSBBW Magazine: What else would you like our readers to know about you or your art?
Artist: 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.

This month's ssbbw/bbw celebrity is : Queen Latifah
Hip-hop's first lady, the woman behind the moniker is Dana Owens, who was born on March 18th, 1970, in East Orange, New Jersey. She came from a police family--both her father and older brother were cops, which would later influence her rhyming style and life philosophy. Owens witnessed both sides of Black urban life in the USA while growing up. After a brief stint as a Burger King employee, she soon found herself making waves in the hip-hop music scene. She originally broke through in the late 1980s with a style that picked selectively from jazz, reggae, and soul traditions. A role model who takes the responsibility to heart, Latifah carefully constructed a fine career for herself--one that is constantly moving upward.
- "I wish every woman would love herself and embrace what she was given naturally." quoted in WOMAN'S WORLD (6-7-05)
- "It was a very vulnerable time going from being insecure about my body and who I am to becoming comfortable with me. I had to tune out what the hell everybody else had to say about who I was. When I was able to do that, I felt free."
Queen Latifah plump and happy
Queen Latifah likes to keep herself plump by eating huge plates of food every day.
The 'Chicago' actress insists she would never diet and has no desire to be a typically tiny Hollywood star.
She said: "Look, I am never going to be a stick-thin Halle Berry, so I'm cool about that. I like to eat a meal! I like anything that puts weight on me. I am not one to turn down macaroni and cheese, even late at night.
"I love Italian food. I love pasta. And give me Indian food! I love my curry, my tandoori. I get bored with yogurts and broccoli.
"A refrigerator full of water? Honey, that's just not gonna happen."
The down-to-earth star also says her curvy figure sets a good example to young women - because it shows you don't have to be super-slim to be happy.
Latifah insists she has loads of fans who admire her for being big and proud.
She is quoted by America's New York Post newspaper as saying: "When people see me on the street, they feel I'm one of them. They say 'Hi'. They feel they can give me a hug. They say, 'My daughter loves you', or that I'm their inspiration because I represent big girls."
