A Beard’s Life

Posted by

So, my wife is not a big fan of beards. When given the task of creating an animated gif on the ds106 site, I figured that I could take advantage of this opportunity to justify the release of my testosterone. Instead of using movie clips, I decided to step outside of the box and do “A Beard’s Life” for a month. The following snapshots were taken November 29th – December 29th. They are all self-portraits taken with my cell phone while looking in the mirror. I did a quick cropping and tried my best to align them and created my animated gif with (the first animated gif maker on my Google search).


At the end of this “experiment”, I’ve been called a wanna-be Santa Claus, an ex-con, and worse still an ex-con who wants to be Santa. I think I now agree with my wife.
