I will miss this and all of you. I'm grateful for all that these events have done for me, and I hope to maintain the friendships I've formed here and further explore the creative territory I've discovered. It's been a great ride.

See you in another life, brothers.

You are bad-ass and class combined. Bad-class, if you will. Please keep up the amazing work and declining to wear shoes. I hope I actually get the honor of meeting you in real life one of these days. Take care, Dschonn.

Chalkdog says:
@Dschonn , you have been such a distinct presence here, with an wonderful aesthetic all your own. It's made the experience all the richer. I've appreciated the opportunity to see your work and read your thoughts on things. You are inseparable from Moustache May in the best sense and I thank you for that and wish you the very best.

Some people don't have, but you do have the old style look and it suits you very well, the moustache, sideburns and clothes. You look better this way than with full beard I think. You could be moustache ambassador of the world.

Ozzy Nelson says:
I'm going to be completely honest.
You have so much ability and talent, you need to be getting paid for it. Get out there and find what it is. I am a huge fan my friend. I believe in you.
Posted: May 31st, 2011 - 7:35pm -
Mackle says:
@OzzyNelson said well.. you have serious talent in all things you invest yourself in. I don't know anyone else that plays cello, tailors their own clothes, speaks multiple languages and looks entirely badass without even trying. If we're being perfectly frank, your only hinderance is yourself. I always hear you talking down about your submissions to these contests and it's ridiculous - you post phenomenal stuff. Don't let you hold you back.

It has been a serious pleasure having you here. I hope to hang out again when I am in Portland again.

wondermade says:
I'm pretty excited about your future too, like jnon. If we (finally) manage to get to Portland we're hanging out because I imagine there's a nearly bottomless pool of conversation points between the two of us.

I'll forever think of you on the train tracks when I think of MM. One of my all-time favorites.

I've always enjoyed your aesthetic dschonn and unique, artistic point of view. I hope the travels and adventures you'll soon undergo will be fruitful and that the direction they lead you will help you to find your way. Keep tailoring and dreaming. I would enjoy counting you as a friend. …thank you.

And another perfectly classic shot to end with. You totally rock and I've really enjoyed your photos and your creativity. And like I told some of the others, if I ever make my Portland vacation happen, I'm looking all you Portland folks up, because you're all awesome!

Binkleberry says:
Mackle hit the nail on the head, John. You are a wonderful human being with so much talent and skill it boggles the mind. You bring your A-Game everywhere you go, but it seems you're the only one who doesn't realize it. Keep doing what you're doing and make life happen. I, for one, look forward to seeing what you have in store for the future. Good luck and Godspeed, my friend.

Pip says:
I'm glad wm mentioned it too, because the train tracks shot, as I think I said last year during photoshop day (in Whiskerino?) is my all time favorite W'rino/MM shot. EVER.

Everyone above me has said it, but I'll say it again. You're wonderful and the true modern renaissance man. I hope the Pacific northwest treats you well and gives you everything you're looking for. You deserve it.

I'll really miss seeing your creativity for a month (or four). I know this isn't the end for us. Not even close.

alijoon says:
Yes, the train tracks really was super.

We know where each over live. So that is good.

I also need to find that book and get it to you. You have a lot of strengths, you just need to realize what they are.

yourfavorite says:
I hope you know this already, but if you do not, you have been one of my favorites over the years. I am glad I got to spend some time hanging out with you at the last Whiskerino bash. You impress me in so many ways dear friend. Should you ever need anything I would be more than happy to help in anyway I can. Best of luck in all you do dschonn. I do hope this is not the last we see of each other. So long for now.

I cannot stress enough how highly I think of your abilities and of who you are as a person. You have inspired me here in Whiskerino and in Moustache May, but even more so, you have inspired me to be myself in real life.

Thank you.

John, we are lifelong friends. I look forward to what will come.

My mind's about fried from tiredness. I can say that if you're in WI and/or I'm in OR we need to hang out. It was really great getting to meet and spend time with you and the other guys at Ozzy's last Feb. Something that will stick with me for a really long time.

Take it easy and keep in touch.

Ace says:
so youre one of the few that i have noticed has gotten noteably better and better with each one of these facial hair things. even though youre not a pro photog like some dudes, you definitely held your own and made a name for yourself. and your shots got progressively more creative as the years past. not seeing your photos will be something i will miss. truely. keep it up friend.

and as far as regality goes, i will never be able to compete with you. that much i can say.

You are the guy that classy facial hair was made for. You're multitude of talents and wealth of knowledge on multiple topics is fascinating. Your photographs have always been ones that I've looked forward to each facial hair event. I too wish we'd had a real conversation at some point over the last 5 years...hopefully there is a future where that can take place. Find me on the interwebs. Emulz:
I'm on the twitters @TheSpecialshoes .

Best of luck in whatever you do.

CurlyMcGee says:
You've been a favorite of mine all along. I've tipped my hat to your Berlin subway shot several times. The truth is that I have to think hard about which is your best shot because you've been so consistently awesome throughout these exhibitions of facial hair. I get the feeling its not the only thing you do well. Keep up the good work and keep your head high, you're a champ.
