Above: Sometimes I get so carried away with the beard (and hair!) that I let the nose get a bit wonky. Pentel fine-tipped pigment ink brush pen sketch on Japanese Lined journal; with washes from a Pentel dye-based brush pen, and color from a 15 mm tipped Montana Markers. This is actor Jorge Garcia who plays a computer-geek-conspiracy-nerd on "Hawaii 5-O" which is a little bit of silliness I like to watch each week because I also enjoy sketching Scott Caan.
I have never dated a man and not asked him to grow a beard. Except once—and he was in the National Guard and I thought there might be a regulation against it—well, that and he really didn't seem like a beard kind of guy.
They were all more fun to photograph and sketch with beards. Maybe I just don't like sketching chins. Nope that's not it.
All but one of them grew a beard. They were fabulous beards. I feel I've done something, however fleeting, to add to the beauty of the world.
Sadly one guy waited almost 20 years to grow a beard (and obviously by that time it wasn't at my request). I was right, he looked fabulous with a beard.
If I ask you to grow a bread I think you should just give in and grow one. I know what I'm talking about.
