My very close friend David Stern is suffering loss. We all have experienced a loss of some form or another. But for my friend David, it is a loss very close to home. His HAIR!
So traumatized by this loss of his manliness, David has mourned his hair in form much like the five stages of grieving for a loved one. He has compiled his journey from pain into a book “The Balding Handbook” hoping to help those of you who are on your own hair loss journey.
An excerpt from the ebook page on Amazon:
“The Balding Handbook” takes you beyond those embarrassing denial moments (hats, combovers, plugs, pieces), keeps you out of jail during that angry second stage, helps you construct a perfect offer to God while you bargain for your hair back, comforts you through the depths of balding depression, and brings you into the light. Of course, you’ll need sunscreen when you get there, but the few extra bucks you shell out to the Hawaiian Tropic® people is a trifle when you consider the incredible life that awaits you after reading this book.
Get one for the bald guy in your group. Just got home and my copy was in the mail so will be reading it this week. Thankfully, yours truly has no need for this book other than to laugh at the pain of others (and pray the hair gods stay true and loyal to me). Soon he might actually do something with all the tshirts I designed for him as well….ahem.
In other news, if you have time, please check out another artist that deserves some love in the web, Dr Faust. He has a special post for all of you for this time of year. (one I think Androgoth will appreciate)
Finally another webcomic friend, David Higgins of Greetings from Earth has started an Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for his website and also try to raise money for Habitat for Humanity and MS. Check it out.
For those that haven’t realized it yet, I spent the last several weeks in Australia. I’ll be posting cartoons inspired by my trip starting Wednesday.
