Dr. Gary Greenberg uses his HD 3-D microscope to photograph ordinary grains of sand from beaches throughout the world. Each grain can take hours to photograph, as he shoots them from numerous angles and later composites them into one image.

The cause of men’s very real unhappiness isn’t a biased family court system, or feminist college professors, or the perceived injustices of Title IX athletic funding. The source of men’s anguish and uncertainty is the straitjacket of traditional American manhood. Men are suffering because their emotional, psychological, intellectual, and sexual potential is stunted by their own efforts to live up to an impossible masculine ideal….
…. Being a man, in other words, is defined by divesting oneself of anything remotely associated with femininity (like kindness, sensitivity, intuition, empathy). When heterosexual masculinity is defined by violent obtuseness, these “guy rules” rob boys of their chance to develop emotional skills to thrive in relationships with others. This frantic effort to shut down a whole aspect of one’s potential isn’t caused by testosterone or Y chromosomes. It’s caused by the longing to live by the “man code.”” —
I’ve heard this termed as the “prison of privilege” in which men suffer under patriarchy just as much, merely in different ways, as women.
YES! Listen up people who think feminists hate men! You’re part of the fight too. You are oppressed under patriarchal standards as well. Patriarchy doesn’t just hurt women. It hurts any gender!

I just got a fan letter (WOAH) and I’ve had more than a few people telling me that they’re really interested in starting, or restarting, their own comic. Rather than address people individually I’m just going to throw out a few nuggets of advice relating to working on a comic, or any professional art really.
Also I have to mention that I did something that professional comic authors do all the time: Create comic books and meet deadlines. I am not special, I think it’s just that the full throttle approach I took is something that people don’t see very often.
