Happy Friday! Today we have a lovely and cheerful chap. What is your name and where are you from? My name is Richard Loveday, from Loughton in Essex. What made you grow your beard? I'm a Graphic Designer, so naturally I need a beard to stroke when I'm being creative. How long have you had your beard for? I've not been clean-shaven for many a moon, but my beard as only been this epic for about 5 months or so. If you could name your beard, what would it be? My missus would probably call my beard The Crumb Catcher, but I'm going to call it The Admiral. Any hopes for your beard in the future? I hope one day to have a beard as wonderful as Steve Zissou from The Life Aquatic. Massive big shout out and thank you to Richard for sharing his fantastic photos, and beard of course.
