If you live in Austin, you certainly recognize these words that grace the wall of Jo's on S. Congress. It's a popular little coffee shop and at any given time there is usually a line stretching down the sidewalk. Actually, make that two lines: one waiting to order a drink and one waiting to take a photo of their famous graffiti. Newlyweds, kids, dogs...you can find them all smiling under the cheery words.
When I started photographing graffiti around town for my Word on the Street project, Jo's was an obvious stop. I took the image, played with the color, printed it on metal, and it's now my most popular piece. See how sleek and cool it looks hanging on a wall?
