Nashville artist Herb Williams, who’s been written about in this magazine, continues his quest to create a world out of crayons. He sent me an email this morning to introduce his latest portrait, that of Senator Obama, just ready for Election Day across America. Though SL does not call itself blue or red, we couldn’t resist showing off our friend Herb, one of Tennessee’s most creative and all-around-swell guys. We love the South and its people much more than we love politics. If you are Nashville, your best bet to meet Herb is to stop by the Rymer Gallery downtown, where he curates and builds his crayon masterpieces. Warning: He may enlist your help in cutting the color sticks, if you are lucky.
Find time to exercise your right to vote today. And while your at it, buy a box of 64 Crayola’s. There’s nothing like that fresh smell.
