Experience the Saga of Celebrity Fanboy - Joe Corroney

Friday, November 30th at 11:00 PM EST

Joe Corroney has been a licensed Lucasfilm artist since 1997 providing art for books, games, trading cards, comic books, posters and magazines in the Star Wars universe. After reviewing Joe’s artwork bibliography you will think of him as the James Brown – “hardest working man” – of the art world of super heroes, sci-fi, horror, fantasy and adventure.  In addition to his huge professional and unpublished portfolio Joe somehow finds the time to teach.

Joe has been the instructor of the Comic Book Illustration Course at the Columbus College of Art and Design in Columbus, Ohio and taught the Ohio State University's Summer Comic Book Workshop. He is also a celebrity member of I originally met Joe on via his posts and was lucky enough to meet him at Star Wars Celebration VI where I purchased his Star Wars Celebration VI Limited Edition Print which celebrates the 30th anniversary of Return of the Jedi. I also fell in love with other concepts he had on display that I had to purchase! I can’t wait to talk to him about those pieces in particular as well as his vast body of work.

We will also, of course, discuss his Star Wars fanboy status, as well as his interest in many other fanboy pursuits. Not the least of which are Indiana Jones, Star Trek and more.

Lin-zy Busch has the Power of the Force, FanGirl!

Friday, November 16th at 11:00 PM EST

Meet Lin-Zy...She illustrates...she fabricates...she even rocks puppetry. She's an all around creative visionary!

The Power of the FORCE Girls were born when Lin-Zy wondered,“what would happen if George Lucas (Star Wars, Indiana Jones) and Craig McCracken (Powerpuff Girls, Dexter’s Laboratory) fell in love and had a baby, creatively-speaking.”
Lin-Zy is a professional artist who has illustrated and designed for Star Wars, Hollywood is Dead and Dodge Charger (We all know that's a personal favorite of mine!). Lin-Zy was also asked to participate in the “As You Wish” charity art helmet project at Star Wars Celebration VI, this August 23-16 in Orlando, Florida and designed her helmet into a Lego Star Wars Clone Trooper. Lin-Zy has described herself as, "the biggest fan-girl there is." We can't wait to chat with her about life, art and Star Wars!

What fun it was interviewing celebrity fangirl Lin-Zy Busch. Lin-Zy advised us that the next episode of the Power of the Force Girls will most likely appear around June 2013. During our conversation that was not aired, Lin-Zy revealed that she and Matt Busch are planning an extended trip to several countries in the Far East and therefore will not be attending any conventions until after their return early next year. 
Lin-Zy also mentioned that she is working on several new projects yet to be released and still quite hush-hush. We can't wait to see these works once released. Lin-Zy was able to share that she is working on some new puppet characters as well.
Other big news is that Lin-Zy will be producing the film written and directed by, her awesome husband, Matt Busch - Aladdin 3477, the 1500 year anniversary of Star Wars (This was a major anniversary episode, lol). Check out the web page at You can also check out the youtube video announcing the film. Happy belated Birthday Matt!

Looks like many interesting things on the horizon for Lin-Zy & Matt Busch!
