Mustache photography

During Movember 2011, I was contacted by Movember HQ to see if I had any high-res photos of myself that they could potentially use in official Mo’-related ads. I was excited by the prospect, but disheartened when I realized I didn’t have a single photo that fit the specs they needed. My “classic” mustache and lions photo wouldn’t cut it this time!

Mustache Movie Madness on the MTV Movies Blog

This Movember, I was fortunate enough to receive some help in my fundraising efforts from a number of wonderful and generous people. It’s belated, but I have to pass along a huge and special “Thank you!” to my good buddy Josh Wigler!

Not only has Mr. Wigler made a very large and selfless donation each year I’ve participated in the mustache-centric fundraiser, but this year, as the editor of the MTV Movies Blog, Josh gave me the opportunity to write about Movember for a national audience.

“How about a Jim Gordon?”

With a very generous donation of $100 before the auction deadline of November 1, my good friend and longtime Movember supporter Josh Wigler claimed my mustache style rights for 2011.

After jokingly suggesting I shoot for a Jeff Daniels a la “Gettysburg” walrus-stache, Mr. Wigler decided I should attempt to emulate one of comic book history’s greatest mustaches… Continue Reading ““How about a Jim Gordon?””


Dave Gibbons gets ready to resurrect a classic ‘stache

Between the two branches of the Ministry of Mustache Growth & Management, my brother Dan and I have recruited 39 solid dudes for this year’s Movember campaign. Each and every one of these distinguished gentlemen is giant among men in his own right, but one recruit this year has me particularly excited: my dad, Dave Gibbons!
