Over at Wondermark, a contest is being held to win the new book "Beards of our Forefathers" in which anyone can submit anything they like, so long as it is slightly Wondermark related. I decided at the last minute to throw my
hat beard in the ring with some needle felted submissions.
I used the book title to play on the "Forefathers" as being the former US presidents. There are 5 presidents who had full beards, but since Garfield isn't funny (referenced in a Wondermark comic) I left him out. So instead there are 4: Lincoln, Harrison, Grant, and Hayes. Plus, I kind of liked Van Buren's psycho mutton chops so I threw him in there for good measure.
I don't know when winners will be announced, and even if I don't win, I will buy the book, but it was still fun to play along.
