For the seven years I created A YEAR IN THE CITY calendars, I was telling myself stories about St. Louis. Some were based on history, some drew on popular culture, and some stemmed from decades-old memories. Over time, I discovered that my pictures were telling the stories of my customers, too. This shared experience was exactly what I’d hoped to create with my art.

7 YEARS IN THE CITY is a collection of the stories behind my calendar, each paired with a full-color illustration, many of which have been remastered for this book. A special section focuses on my process as a digital artist. A locator map encourages readers to build their own itineraries and tell their own stories about living in St. Louis.
