I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.

Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

That’s what Angela Zhang was doing, and now, she’s $100,000 the richer for it. Also, she can say she’s created a nanoparticle, one that kills cancer, for what that’s worth (Spoiler: It’s worth a lot).

Her project, “Design of Image-guided, Photo-thermal Controlled Drug Releasing Multifunctional Nanosystem for the Treatment of Cancer Stem Cells,” was apparently as complex, thorough, and revolutionary as it sounds.
So you’re interested in a geek girl, she’s interested in you, but only one of you is interested comics. You’re not nerdy. You’re not even Almost Nerdy. But you still want to know how to handle it when your girlfriend starts geeking out.
If you’re not willing to embrace the world of comics, you…
It’s December 1st, and once again I’m hanging out the festive holiday decorations. And once again I’ll be featuring 25 days of holiday items but this year it won’t be just Wonder Woman but will include other DC women as well. Each day I’ll post a holiday theme piece featuring a DC women. Could be panels from a comic, a holiday item, or, maybe, as we get to the end some original art from some up and coming artists. And to kick off I have a holiday version of the Trinity.
