I've grown a lot since day one

Now, the man known as Miguelito, Mig, Miggums, YeaMig - with a beard known as The V-beard, the Rooster, the Chin Fauxhawk - must say goodbye to Whiskerino proper. I wish everyone the best, this has been a very entertaining, sometimes frustrating and otherwise completely rewarding experience. it was great growing and showing with you.

It's been great, man. I'll see you on Twitter/Flickr/etc. and, perhaps, in real life in the future.

And with that passes the last great monolith in Detroit to the epic manliness that once flourished there. Goodnight, sweet prince.

Thank you, Miguelito, it has been such a pleasure getting to know you through your photographs these past four months. I would have loved to troll for cuties at the throwdown with you in short shorts, perhaps another day.
I wish you the best and godspeed!

You made my one and only throwdown extremely memorable. It's been fun following you and your antics.

team RENAUD never says goodbye, team RENAUD just silently chokes back the tears and swallows those feelings of sadness and emotion that might otherwise cloud the adventuring spirit and muscle.

I don't think the image of a man running around in tiny blue shorts snuggling people will ever leave my mind. Enjoy your internet celebrity, you've earned it.

A hundred ants crawled along the ground, thinking about picnics and home invasion and sticky sweet syrups. They watched the man as he did his thing, posing for the camera that rested awkwardly in his "photography" hand. They found some bread and a larger insect carcass but decided to watch the man instead. They watched as the man began dancing, then really dancing, then SUPER dancing. He danced until he broke space and time. Then someone gave him some cash and he purchased some soup because he was cold.

You're an awesome guy. Glad we got to queue up together on Friday, and I have a good feeling we may see each other again someday.

Army of Whiskers says:
Hello Migs,

I though your comments were some of the most amusing of the batch. Hence why I was browsing the following CLAME the other day.

It was a pleasure growing with you. Glad we connected on FB. See you around.

PS - Your blue shorts are forever burned in my mind.

TheStride says:
Thanks for the good times. Thanks for the dance. Thanks for the laughs. Thank you for the blue shorts.

Grower&Shower says:
I feel the same. We had good times in Nashville. I got to know your legs better than I had hoped.

That sounds weird.

Because it was.

I hope to stay in touch Miguelito.

I'm sure I do know of some, but they're all cougars. We're older, ya know. I'll hunt for a naive southern belle who doesn't know any better and airmail her to ya.

zackle says:
What more can I say, Miguel? You're an awesome dude. I'm jealous of Jim and the rest of Team Renaud - Detroit Edition because they get to hang out with you on the regular.

You really came into your own these last four months, and I think it's safe to say you pretty much owned Nashville. They should've given you the keys to the city. For an hour.

Your kind words have meant a ton to me, especially your comment today. I hope that you join us in May, sans inhibition and intimidation. And keep up that wonderful illustration that you do, and keep in touch.

Love,
zackle

Chinese Wildman says:
It was good to meet you in Nashville, Mig. Judging from all of our time in chat, you were every bit as cool a guy as I had come to expect. Thanks for rolling with the mom jokes and the constant barbs about your manwoman gymnast girlfriend. Great photos, and a great showing in Nashville. Take care of yourself and keep in touch.

Take care and hope to see you again in May!

Great to meet you at the TD. Keep working on your art every day. Its the only way you get better. It's been great to grow with you this past 120 days. Your antics at the TD were so funny. Hope to cross paths again sometime.

You've had a great run this year. To bad we didn't get to meet in person but it's been awesome to see your beard grow.

JamesC says:
It was really cool meeting you. Your constant chatter has kept me entertained even though it's about comic books which are for little kids. Your appreciation of Tim & Eric bought you a couple points, although it, again, is on a cartoon channel for little kids. You like to dress up (also little kid behavior). You draw pictures of superheros (also kid-like). So what I'm saying is I like little kids. Named Miguelito who grew a beard.
Stay cool, brother.

Man, you've been a constant source of joy on here. You have posted sooo many fun shots. And it was a real pleasure to follow them for the last 4 months. Thanks for sharing your genius sketches along the way. I'm glad I caught a few of those genius clames in the chat. Thanks.

hale. says:
thanks for being here and bringing a lot of enthusiasm and personality. team renaud needed that because they are usually rather boring. well that's not true. what is true is that you were a bog part of the whiskerino experience this year, so thank you for that. take care.

Andrew says:
dude. you were the person that I got to know the most through this crazy thing and I'm really glad for that. you've got class and character in spades and I'm glad to call you a friend IRL. this isn't a goodbye by any means and we both know it.

Now that this crazy thing is over we can focus on writing crazy comics and other majorly rad stuff. I can see us as the future kirby/lee, the wood/kelly even.

you're not mignored. let's do this thing.
