HoNoToGroABeMo 2008: Adam’s Beard


Here we have a late entry to How Not To Grow a Beard Month, my younger brother, Adam. He’s not late because he didn’t participate right along with the rest of us, but because I’ve been too lazy to post the photos he sent me until today. But rather than post every single picture, I decided to do an animated progression, starting with Day Zero and proceeding through Day Nineteen (he has yet to send me the remaining eleven days).

The thumbnail below links to an animated GIF, which weighs in at just over 1MB. If you’ve got a slow connection, it’ll take a while to load.

Once I receive the remaining photos, I’ll update the animation. I estimate that it took me about two hours to scale, rotate and align the individual frames of this animation, but I think it was well worth it to demonstrate that someone in my family can grow a decent beard.

    Holy cow. Is day 30 just a picture of only hair!?

    Good job on the animated gif. Next year I’m totally taking my pictures all in the same place so I can do similar.

    Assuming I remember to take the pictures.

      @Wesley — I have not yet seen Day Thirty, but it might well be divided equally between hair on the bottom and shave pate up top.

      @Karen — Thanks! I’m fairly pleased with the result, but if I do a Version 2.0, I may try to remove the background.
