On a recent trip to Austin, TX, I noticed the endless amounts of graffiti that decorated the Travis Heights neighborhood. Joe's Coffee Shop had "I love you so much" tagged on the side of the building (pictured below) and there was always a line of people waiting to take a photo in front of the tag.
Although I am not advocating we all go buy a can of spray paint, I love graffiti when it's positive, interesting and can be shared.
After Evanston suffered a rash of racist tagging last year, it's always good to see graffiti that focuses on the positive.

If you see more of this work around town, take a quick picture on your cell or camera and email the image to me at email@example.com. Thanks!
