Fantasy Beards

“FANTASY BEARDS” is a continuation of Robert Dayton’s recent series of “New Beard Archetypes”, a collection of pen and ink portraits of the familiar, bearded faces drawn as masks with blank holes for eyes. With “FANTASY BEARDS” Robert moves his portraiture away from the everyday and into beards that he would want to exist though they clearly do not. Robert Dayton is a recognizable moustachioed–some say ‘eccentric’–personality of many talents that often converge. As an artist he has exhibited in numerous shows and has regularly contributed drawings, art, features, reviews, obits and quips to such publications as Hunter and Cook, Roctober, Cinema Sewer, Paper Rodeo, Free Drawings, and his own series of Y2K Compatible self-help art booklets.
