In that glamorous, dog-ownership kind of way, I had to deliver a sample of Merlin's pee to our vet this morning. They're right on a funky, double, across-a-train-track intersection that I've driven through all my life. The intersection of Southern and Highland always seems to define its neighborhood for me, so I took my sketching gear to take advantage of driving out there and did this drawing.
Wednesday night was my bookclub, and we alternate between meeting in Midtown and going out east. Again, since I was driving somewhere different anyway, I took advantage of the opportunity and headed out early to draw the neighborhood I grew up in. This is right along Poplar near Colonial, which was my street growing up. The Clark Tower dominates this whole part of town, so my Memphis series wouldn't be complete without it.
