A writer and visual artist has used humour and wit to challenge preconceived ideas about masculinity.

Sam Leighton-Dore’s newly-released book, How To Be A Big Strong Man, explores issues surrounding masculinity through a series of cartoons, making it an engaging and easy to read resource.

His work covers some controversial issues in an unconventional way.

Leighton-Dore admits he has ‘ruffled a few feathers’ with his his approach, with the book drawing some criticism.

However, he believes tacking controversial issues such as ‘toxic masculinity’ was always going to be a challenge.
