Smile a while

fullsizeoutput_24e3.jpegI passed this “street poem” by my friend Kyle Brooks (aka Black Cat Tips) yesterday. It has been there for years, from back when he used to go around and hammer up things like this all over. Before he became a famous Southern folk artist (now commissioned by cities and corporations to do big beautiful murals); before people started taking these early pieces down and collecting them. And I smiled, for awhile, because I just received his first book and take a look (below) at what it’s called!
