Soto on Why Coloring Class is Better than Marriage

Recently, in the "Ask Soto" thread in the Creators Workshop, we had a Workshop member ask about the upcoming Introduction to Comic Book Coloring class.

The Workshop member wrote:
Hello there!

I'm debating on taking the coloring class. It looks great, but as I'm getting married next month (yay!), money is a little tight.

I was wondering if there was any way we could find out how many spots are left open, and when the sign-ups close, to see if I could get it all together?
Soto replied:
Oh, my friend.

Let me explain something about marriage to you. I've been married for 13 years, I've got 3 kids, and I wish I would have taken my coloring class.

My coloring class will make you feel validated and confident for 6 weeks, whereas your wife will stop paying attention to you about 3 weeks after the honeymoon. That's an extra 3 weeks of creative validation! You can't put a price on that!

At some point your wife will refuse to make you breakfast, and you'll be eating unfrosted Pop Tarts and drinking water (like I'm doing now). I really don't want you to make a decision you'll regret. My coloring class is better than marriage.
And, to back him up, another Workshop member and alum of several other courses chimed in:
I've been married for 10 years, I've got 2 kids, and I am taking Soto's coloring class.

I wish I took these classes 10 years ago. It's six weeks of encouragement and support, from complete strangers, you are unlikely to find elsewhere.

All I know is that my husband has ONE thing to do around the house which is put out the recycling twice a month, and I still have to remind him to do that. He has made me breakfast twice and only in the last two years, both times badly.

Is Soto's class better than marriage? It's a no brainer.
Still need more? Soto shared a few final thoughts:
Just like any class, whatever you put in, is what you get out of it.

I don't demand that you do the homework assignments, but if you don't do them, you really only have yourself to blame.

Oh, and I'll tell you if the work you submit sucks. I've done it before. But, I will tell you how to make it better. It's up to you to either take my suggestions or not.

I'll stay as long as possible to get through the necessary information. Also, you can review the recorded sessions if you think you missed anything. If you don't understand something from the previous week's discussion, let me know. I'm happy to review anything and everything again, and I'll try to explain it in a different way so it's more understandable.

All in all, I want you to get the most from your hard-earned money and learn, because chicks dig colorists.
There you have it. If you'd like more information, check out Soto's Guest Blog about the class right here:
