It’s day one of Movember. Shaving my upper lip is just one of the things I won’t be doing for a full month. I also won’t be cutting my fingernails but this is less in the aide of charity and more in the aide of looking like Wolverine. I am growing a mustache this November to raise awareness of men’s health issues like depression and testicular/prostate cancer. Often men with depression don’t seek out help. Beyond Blue is a service for anyone to seek assistance with any mental anguish. Letting close friends know if you are feeling depressed is totally acceptable… this is what friends are for… this and air-hockey (it’s the only game I can accidentally lose when playing unopposed – losing with friends is better than losing alone).
As the skin between my mouth and nose gets hairier I will be be producing paintings of mustached men for sale during the month of November. Half the money raised goes to Movember. By Buying a painting like the ones pictured below you will be helping Australian men break the culture of hiding their depression.
The prices of the paintings will vary from between $100 to $2,000. I will take requests for paintings and we can talk price from there. Stay tuned for more artworks to come.
If you want to buy a painting just contact me.
