One Last Beardy Hurrah!
So this weekend is the much anticipated Scrumpstock! To which I will be taking all my leftover beards.
So if your at Scrumpstock this weekend, keep an eye out for some homeless beards!! And dont be afraid to pick them up and take them home :D
They’re going to be perfect for watching The Beards :D
So I had to set up an entirely new account to get my new blog the way I wanted. Go check it out at www.grichmondart.tumblr.com
It will hopefully be full of interesting and innovative craft and art. But will probably be full of me going ‘I’m still knitting the same bloody cardigan’.
Beard Days are Over
I think it’s time to admit to myself and you guys that this beard a day project has reached its conclusion. I’m sad that I didn’t make it the full year, but taking the hiatus has made me realise that I really dont want to go back to making a beard a day, when there are so many others things I want and need to be making right now.
So this is it guys. There’s a few days worth of backlog that I will probably upload in one big post, but then that will be it for this Beard A Day project. As I said before, this project has done what I needed it to do; to keep me creative when my inspiration was at its lowest. But now I’ve settled into ‘normal’ life, and I’m ready to start doing art projects that have real meaning and thought behind them.
I’m not sure what’s going to happen to this blog now. I may evolve it into a standard art blog, but that seems unlikely.Tumblr doesn’t have the feedback capabilities for a good art blog. It’s more like a sounding board where you just talk to yourself, haha. Which is fine, but I’m going to look around for better hosting sites, and I’ll keep you updated when I do that.
But what about the beards? If you’ve had your eye on any that I’ve made, now would be the time to make enquiries about buying or reserving. I’m going to sell the ones anybody would like, and the rest will be used in a fantastic beard plant somewhere in Britain. I have my eyes set on London, but it will probably end up being somewhere closer to home.
So this is farewell to the project. Obviously I’ll be sticking around for the finishing bits and bobs, but you can officially stamp this project COMPLETE.
Just a mini beard hiatus. Dont expect updates until next week. I’m currently working 4 days in a row, and I know that sounds like a silly reason to take a break, but I usually work no more than 2 in a row, so this is taking it out of me a bit, and leaving me with very little time to get beards sorted.
I am still making them, just not wearing or photographing them :/
How do you full-time workers do it? This is just more proof that I could never handle full-time work. I’d rather have the time!
‘Gallifreyan’ Oh man, I loved doing this beard so very very much. The symbols on it are circular gallifreyan (Gallifrey is a planet from Doctor Who, if you’re not aware). The tutorials for writing it can be found here http://www.shermansplanet.com/gallifreyan And anyone who translates what’s written on this beard has my utmost respect.
(And yes, I know it’s not perfect; I used the beard itself as the phrase circle.)
