IF - Buzz Hair Cut


This is my dad.
He used to be in the Air Force and always had to do the "Military Buzz" hair cut. Even if he's retired now, he never changed his hair cut style! :) I always tell him that he still looks as handsome as he was 40 years ago :)

hiya mitchie!

nice one :-) this is a scene norman rockwell might have painted.

my dad gave me buzz cuts when i was little. my classmates would try to pull my hair afterward but it would be too short for them to grasp.

pero, que es un bombón, pati @-;--?

Hi Michelle! I think we kinda have the same take, only mine is about my son. I really love your illo, it's so cute! I especially love the red-white-blue spinning sign outside the barber shop!

That is so cute! I love your story about your dad having the same military cut he's had since he served. I see that a lot. Maybe it's their trophy.

Another great one...I remember when I went through basic and got the mandatory buzz...actually scalped would have been more accurate...

My dad used to get these haircuts because he LIKED them! I wonder what he was smoking? I used to call them George Gobel haircuts. (You're probably too young to know who he was.) Anyway, excellent illo!

Your illo once again is funny, and bright energy fills this piece.
Your dads buzz cut looks very cool, he's right to keep it, why screw around with a good thing.
Full of fun as usual and very creative take for "buzz"!

Another great illustration- the expressions are great!
The barber's expression makes me think he's French for some reason.

I've been out of the army for 12 years and I still cut it close. Of course, I can't do much else- I don't have hair, I have Brillo. When I was a kid, mom used to scour pots on my head. Other kids had dandruff, I had that purple crap.
