Best thing there
Apparently, people who hate on interracial and same-sex families still exist. When they unleashed their bile on a Honey Maid ad celebrating modern families, the company came up with this enormously heartening response.

The Penny-Sized Illustrations of @samlarson
To see more photos of both Sam’s normal-sized and minuscule work, follow @samlarson on Instagram.
"I gather my inspiration from the American West," says Sam Larson (@samlarson), a 25-year-old Wisconsin native now working as a freelance artist in Carlsbad, California. “I like to get out into the mountains and desert whenever possible.” On Instagram, Sam shares his western-themed creations, which often take the form of tiny, penny-sized drawings.
Sam attributes his rekindled interest in illustration to Instagram. In 2013, after a five-year hiatus from art, “I started doing one drawing a night to post on Instagram. It was an exercise that held me accountable, and the encouragement helped keep me going.”
"Instagram has allowed me to make new friends, travel to places I didn’t know existed, share my art and so much more," says Sam. "I hope to inspire people to pick up a pen, or to embark on some type of adventure."
