Been in San Fransisco the past few days, busy, and detached from the computer. Unfortunately I bring bad news. Yes its shameful news, I have shaved. It was a tough decision that I stressed over a few days but I couldn't bare to look at my patchy, sad face in the mirror. Much like a penguin wasn't meant to fly, I just wasn't meant to grow a beard.

This was the last pic before I shaved, cell block C of Alcatraz. Appropriate, I think, for gracing the shameful.

I'll continue to visit the site and be here in spirit. I get so much inspiration from you guys... so inventive, and always pushing your creativity. Once again, much respect and thanks to Mackle for these sites. I'm in awe of your motivation and energy.

See you guys in May!

best,
chris

mackle says:
as disappointing as this is you really do have a helluva moustache.

hit me up once this account gets shamed so I can get you in on a commenting account. unfortunately the system isn't setup to let you be shamed AND still comment.. so you'll need a new one.

But I digress, total bummer to see you go but an understandable decision and hopefully you'll stick around and keep commenting!

Sorry to see you go. It was great growing with you, but you do what you must. Maybe now you can get to bed earlier!

Damn it. I was wondering about your absence. I'll miss your art. See you in May.

@damnweather stole my thought.

Definitely bummed to see you bow out, but happy to know you'll still be around. I guess settling for Moustache All-Star isn't a bad life.

That said,

SHAMETIME!
