Whiskerino 2009


is worthy of being followed.

Well this is the end. I wish i would have had more time to put more conceptual effort into this thing. That is my one regret. Great job to everybody all around. I had quite the experience here and the Throw Down was the icing on the cake. Special thanks to @Mackle, well done sir. Thanks to @Wheatbeard, @Beardgoggles, and @NorthBeardSouth for convincing me to do this.
All the creatives on this site you are truly something special. So inspiring and so entertaining. I will not be participating in MM, for now at least, until Beard Goggles convinces me to that is.

As for the book. We are making it. Prolly through Blurb.com. Prolly around $30-35. It will be around 250 pages. All portraits get a spread. Others that were not able to make it will get an honorary mention. I will e-mail and let you know. Take care brethren, I will miss you all.
