Yee Haw Industries

Back before I dropped anchor here in New Orleans, I resided in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains. Having grown up in Appalachia, I reserve a special place in my heart for whiskey, banjos, and the kind of comfort food that warms your soul and clogs your arteries.

Sometimes I get nostalgic, and although I wouldn’t trade living in New Orleans for anything, my friends at Yee-Haw Industrial Letterpress in Knoxville always remind me why part of my heart will always be in East Tennessee. Their work captures many of the things I love about the place, including– and relevant to this blog– the importance of food in the lives of Southerners.

Part of their Jack Daniels series from last year. I might post more of these at a later date.

And, to bring everything back around to New Orleans…

Visit Yee Haw Industries and their online store to see other great art that’s not necessarily food-related.
