No San Diego Comic Con for me this year, but I still have had a busy weekend home here in Memphis.
Friday night after work Nicki and I attended the summer Broad Avenue Art Walk.
It happens a few times a year (next one will be this fall) and has many of the shops, studios, and galleries on the block participate.
This time there was live music and dancing performances outdoors.
This time at the West Memorials gallery (my day job) we had art and photographs by three artists.
Paintings and folk art by Alex Warble.
Carousel photos by Nicole C. Perugini.
And poster art by Tom Foster.
We had a great turnout!
After enjoying some wine and cheese at West we headed east up Broad.
After checking out several spaces that way we came back down to Hollywood and over to a photography studio…
and caught a glass blowing demo across the street.
It was a lot of fun to watch, and we’ll have to go watch her play roller derby sometime!
It started to get late so we headed back across the street.
Then called it a night.
The next day Nicki headed over to Comics and Collectibles for their “Not At Comic Con” day. Picked up my pull list comics, a Joker Toon Tumbler glass, Nicki a Star Wars: Clone Wars trade, took a free shot of Red Bull, entered a Dark Horse contest, and picked up a couple passes to Scott Pilgrim for next week. After that we headed to Micheal’s to pick up some canvases for my upcoming art show and by Books-a-million to do some shopping. Nicki kept me updated on all the comic con news as we drove around. Watched a bit online when we got home (Gail Simone, Buddy Christ, Bender, and protesting Baptists all in one video- only at San Diego!) and some on G4 (not lot of comic book coverage- much like San Diego). It was a great “Not At Comic Con” day, just didn’t see as many celebs as I normally do in San Diego. 😉
