This is me at my front porch in Saint Louis in the fall of 2002.
The beard was 2 years old on Thanksgiving that year.
I was a couple of years older.
I shaved it off in the Winter of 2003-2004. February of 2004, actually. I was depressed, and it kept getting zipped in my coat, and blew into paint jobs I was working on, so it went.
I miss it.
I'll put some of my drawings and things on this page, if I can figure it all out.
