One of the greatest things about creating my own line of beard oils – aside from having an endless supply, tailor made to my liking – is that I get to see how others like them. I’ve been getting amazing feedback on some of the partner sites they’re sold on, like this one:
The last few months of 2015 were crazy busy and fun, and the year closed out strong. The Everyday Gentleman was only in the market about two months. I was fulfilling orders nearly non-stop. It was all beards, all the time.
However, perhaps the most important thing (more than the numbers, units sold or business partnerships made), was hearing how incredibly well-received the beard oils were.
I received a remarkable bit of feedback that came just as 2015 ended. It was a review by Instagram beard oil connoisseur, ibeejohnnybee. I’ll include the full post below, but to be known for “awesome labels, stellar scents and high quality oils” as well as being voted #2 of all the beard oils he’d tried throughout the year was astonishing! I was beyond pleased and it only justifies why I’m doing this in the first place. And it seems I’m doing it right after all.
I’ve always believed we should go beyond ordinary products that don’t live up to our expectations. Go beyond the beard with The Everyday Gentleman.
You’ll smell awesome… and there’s more to come!
…A Symbol With No Beginning And No End.
A few months ago I embarked upon the latest issue of Velocitylab. That is, issue No 8. I clung to the thought that the number 8 on its side quite remarkably resembles the same iconic symbol of Infinity. No beginning and no end. I considered that would be a great way to bring the latest theme of Velocitylab to life.
Here are a few shots of the latest issue… I know I haven’t been posting much on this blog, (due mostly to the hard work I;ve been putting in to Velocitylab as well as the novel I recently published – A Boy Named Medusa – that available on Amazon and Smashwords..) but I’ll be sharing more of the latest on Velocitylab soon enough.

So goes the introduction to the latest issue of my zine, Velocitylab. And at this point, I feel truer words could not be spoken. Or written. Interestingly enough, each introduction of every issue of the zine speaks volumes to what is happening at the moment of its publication; this one echoes what is happening throughout.
Velocitylab No6 is out now. Full of interesting interviews with bands – some you may know, some you may just be hearing about now – as well as some amazingly talented artists who contribute to this issue.
Check it out here: VELOCITYLAB No6
Hope you enjoy —
Recently I’ve been spending so much of my time putting together the latest issue of Velocitylab (stay tuned!)… but before I put the final touches on this issue of my zine, I remixed a song of one of my favorite bands, The Deer Tracks.
Hope you enjoy! Click on the image, or right here: Velocitylab X The Deer Tracks
They are inspired, respectable artists and spiritual people. Please look them up < The Deer Tracks > and listen to what they have to offer.
I discovered them some time ago and interviewed them for Velocitylab No5. Check out my interview here.
…and send em yr love as they’re paying a sold out show tonight in London!
