Blog: Bearded Bigwigs

After a week of weddings, pre-Christmas "togetherness", and a determination seemingly bent upon contracting early-onset Gout, I found myself housebound. With little other to do than distressingly rapid trips to the lavatory, I thought I should try and do something that didn't remind me of "Pollock's brown phase"... Armed with one increasingly blunt HB pencil, I set about creating quick sketches of my bearded heroes. One for each day until I felt up to recommencing my festive life of excess!

P.S. I'm now fine... but I feel like keeping going with the sketches for a while at least. In fact, as I recall, the day I started was also the last day I shaved - perhaps it seems fitting to keep going until I have as mighty a facial merkin as these hirsute fellas!

Question: Does my subconscious dislike drawing chins?!
