On this episode of Two Girls With Glasses, Brandi McElhatten and Nikki Delamotte talk to illustrator Erin Schechtman of Super Group Hugs and photographer Laura Wimbels of Faces of CLE. They begin by recapping the cosplay, characters and celebrity sightings at this year’s Wizard World convention.

Erin Schechtman talks about the evolution of Super Group Hugs, her art series where everyone from Doctor Who to Sailor Moon get up close and personal. Since its humble beginnings as an idea sparked for her table at Free Comic Book Day at Carol and John’s Comic Book Store, Schechtman has been traveling to conventions and art shows across the country. She also gives us a little insight into working alongside the Rust Belt Monster Collective art team, whose collaborative murals have been seen at events across Cleveland.

Laura Wimbels has been documenting people in the city through her portrait project Faces of CLE. She tells us about how it started with calling up a few people and asking to snap their picture. It's snowballed into what she hopes to one day turn into a coffee table book. Wimbels is also a talented, emerging storyteller and recounts her experiences performing at Happy Dog’s Keep Talking event and as part of The Moth podcast in Pittsburgh.
