i love this picture
… which lead me to the official website of whiskerino:
Beards used to be glorified as signs of virility and manliness… In early America, men that could not grow facial hair were demeaned less advanced and uncivilized. Now we have come full circle where our own society promotes this emasculated version of maleness. Where to be a man is to be clean-shaved; to be respectable is not to have a beard. Let us return to our roots! Let us return to true masculinity! Let us cry out with one voice:
“I WILL HAVE A BEARD!! I WILL BE A MAN!! I WILL NOT CONFORM TO YOUR RULES!”
i’m lucky enough to own a few signed original prints by obie oberholzer (thanks to a generous friend), and this one is by far my favourite – both sweet and sad.
