It seems I have become somewhat political.

Hi Mat. Facebook friend-of-a-friend, fellow disabled person and insomniac here. thought Id share my thoughts on manhood if you dont mind?
Manhood is more than just having hair on your pits and your bits, or having a strong back or a potential for violence.  You said yourself that that is the popular, superficial view of being a man.  A man is more than all of those things. A man is every childs father at need. A man knows his responsibilities and lives up to them as best he can.  A man's shoulders are more important than his back because his friends know they can depend on them to lean on when needed, regardless of how far from the floor they are!.You talked about not being able to "protect women" but that is exactly what you are doing by being a friend, being a Man. You are not being "friendzoned" (I think you know, in the cold light of day that that is just self pity, not something that a man should even be considering) you are being a friend.  A man is self aware and sensitive to others but knows too when to ask for help or when he needs to just have a damn good whinge!  :)
Just from watching your short video I can see that you fit all the criteria.  You are a man, don"t let anyone, not even your 3am self, tell you otherwise.

A little bit of politics....
Posted by Phill Evans It's all about context, not taste. Charlie Hebdo was recently criticised for publishing a cartoon using Aylan Kurdi's death by drowning (two, actually) as being in poor taste. So was Mac, the cartoonist ...

Finally, something to argue with in the Trews :)  As someone who has published my own colouring book (https://www.facebook.com/PhillEvansIllustration/app_251458316228 just sayin') I am quite keen on adults colouring, and not even so I can sell my book (I only got 100 printed, not going to get rich off of this nor do I want to.)  Russell has picked on this phenomenon to highlight his own bugbears, which is totally OK.  But I think he has kinda missed a point here.  He often urges us to explore meditation so I can see why he got irritated by the asinine reporting (what more can we expect from TV news?) but colouring, like drawing and other forms of creativity are entirely analogous as a form of psychological exercise  to the meditation he venerates.  The act of colouring encourages not a solipsistic introversion (my main problem with meditation) but an engagement in making creative choices (even the colour or whether to ignore the lines are choices, small and personal but in no way trivial.)  The somewhat hyperbolic claims for health benefits aside, there are definite bonuses for a person who doesnt, on a day to day basis, engage in any creative activity.
Russell paints (forgive the pun) colouring for adults as infantile and infantilising, I would argue that if it is, how much less so is structured sitting around and daydreaming for grown ups?
I do think he is right about colouring our hearts with the colours of revolution, though.  Perhaps those people taking out their crayons are doing just that?

That word, "anarchy".  It does not mean what I think they think it means.

Story
Introduction
I am a freelance digital illustrator working from my home studio in rural Shropshire.  I live with my wife and youngest son, a dog and two chickens.

My illustration work is mostly digital but I bring traditional draftsmanship skills to the new mediums to create interesting contemporary images to the clients specifications.
