Check out this beardy seafaring lad! I'm sure he'd be an excellent addition to your crew. Kapitein Winokio, as drawn by Eva Mundorff.
In other news, I changed my banner in my Etsy shop. I'm trying to think of ways of making things look more unified between the blog and the shop, short of making an actual logo... branding seems difficult and sort of unnecessary for this project. I'm happy to just have people find me on accident, I guess.

I've been seeing a lot of excellent Abe Lincoln related prints lately. Check out this awesome one from Jill K. in L.A.!
Still loving the green beards. The resemblance to Oscar the grouch is really coming through on this one, though. Could come in handy :)
From the Portland Mercury website: "Mustaches for Kids may sound a little creepy, but it's actually a group who grow mustaches and raise money for charity in the process. This year's "growing season" benefits local schools, and concludes with a mustache contest and party at Holocene, where this year's winner will take home the Sweetest 'Stache Award. (Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison, 8 pm, $5)

Still not sure how I feel about this one. It's just so... green. So much green near my face makes me feel a little ill. But hey, this is PERFECT for St. Patrick's Day (and would actually be pretty fun for Mardi Gras, too).
Always With Honor made this lovely illustration. Loving the peg leg and yellow boot combo, very practical.

Wish I had found this in time for President's Day. One of the best bearded presidents building a house with his namesake logs. I wonder why they called them Lincoln Logs... Go grab a print for yourself at LovelyMPLS's etsy shop!

I'm sure all you LOST fans are still buzzing about last night's episode, so check out this awesome beardy connection! The lovely duo behind Geronimo Jack's Beard bought a couple beards this month, and are rocking them on their blog. The podcasts are put together by the ever so cryptic "sidekick22 and that other guy," but I have a hunch that the "other guy" happens to be Jorge Garcia, who plays Hugo "Hurley" Reyes (aka, my boyfriend's favorite character).
Either way, they're looking pretty sneaky in their new beards, don't you think?
Are you a satisfied customer of I Made You A Beard? Feel free to post your newly beardy mug shots in my new flickr group flickr.com/groups/happybeardos/

Hey Portland beardos, if you're bored this evening, head on over to Small Victories, which is having it's opening party tonight! Everyone likes parties, right? Plus, they are carrying some of my beards, so if you have been dying for a chance to try on a beard in person, they've got the hookup. Really excited to see such an awesome new shop opening, does this mean the economy has finally taken a chill pill?

I've been hiding this beard for a while... I couldn't seem to get a good picture of it (bet you're tired of hearing that old line!) In case you can't tell, this beard glows in the dark! WHOA. Fun for mutants and beardos of all ages.
Should be listed in my Etsy shop soon, so keep an eye out!

Woke up to find that my bearded mug is gracing the NBC New York homepage... very strange. It's attached to an article about Build-a-Beard, which is also run by a woman! Hooray for women infiltrating this manly bearded corner of the world :)
Build-a Beard is hosting a Beard Ball, where bearded fellows can congregate to raise money for Right Rides, a non-profit that "gives free late-night rides to women who have inadvertently found themselves in less-than-desirable circumstances." Pretty cool. I guess I'm included in the article to give people a place to buy facial hair, in case they can't grow any in time for the Beard Ball. I'm happy to help, if any of you NY beardos need a hand.

Did you see New York Magazine's primer on "The Urban Woodsman"? Pretty funny stuff, especially the article "It All Starts with the Beard," which featured these lovely beard illustrations by Justin Bryan Nelson (who was also featured in Hair'em Scare'em, that book I showed you a few weeks ago!).
Look at these urban woodsmen! Watch out guys, wouldn't want to get those $289 flannel jackets dirty (i kid, i kid). Photo taken by Hannah Whitaker.
I'm featured in an online only magazine called GAARN, a magazine for sewing culture out of Germany. Sprechen Sie deutsch? You'll be able to read the many articles! Even if you don't speak German, you should browse through it if you're into sewing. Lots of cool things featured in there.
