It's that time again! I've been putting together the My Memphis 2016 calendar. Due to a crazy busy year, I'm only doing a Memphis one this year. Between my work at Memphis Theological Seminary and my exhibition at Dixon (both places represented in the calendar to celebrate those professional milestones), I'm up to my eyeballs lately, in a joyful and fulfilling kind of way.
I'm going to try to keep it simple and organized this year, so I'm asking people who want one (or more) for sure to pre-order here through my web store (hosted by Square). There's a pick up option for Memphis people only, ones who are willing to drive to midtown or catch me at the Pink Palace Crafts Fair or my home show. Otherwise there's a shipping option. But having everyone buy through the website (unless you get one at the shows or perhaps Burke's, but I will order conservatively, and I sold out last year) will keep all the info in one place and let me finish out the orders as I deliver them. There was too much to keep track of last year with three calendars and facebook orders too. If you want multiples and have shipping questions (don't want to pay more shipping than necessary), then do holler at me. We'll figure out an option for that.
I've gotten looser in my sketches over the last year, so there are some that are more playful than in years past. I've got a number of finished watercolors included, of course, but also some labelled sketches (like the cover) and a couple of sketch compilations, like the one of Memphis musicians. I hope folks will enjoy this celebration of the city I love.
