For the February issue of Charleston Magazine, I illustrated the Charleston Cottage, also called Freedman’s Cottage. You can read more about it here!
I’m also listed as a contributor, where I talk about the things I miss about living in the Low Country!

Red Dot StoreAwendaw, SC 
From the Richland County Public Library:


It is believed to have its origin in the South Carolina Constitution of 1895, article 8, section 11, which prohibited alcohol sales between sundown and sun-up. The red ball designates the sun and identifies the store as one that sells alcohol. The State newspaper, 10/03/1984, gave the following theory:
In the 1940s, the state was forcing liquor stores to shrink their signs dramatically, so as not to advertise alcohol too blatantly. Stores were allowed to use lettering only a few inches high on doors or windows. A Charleston liquor store “highlighted” the tiny lettering with a dramatic red dot, and everyone else followed suit.
