I realized very early in my project to spread smiley faces across the world that the task of letting my audience and especially my subjects to trust and understand my vision was inevitable .I Learnt firsthand how difficult that was in the case of doing that in minutes of meeting a stranger. I saw this lady right after listening session from one of my favorite street jazz band, as soon as saw her the visual printed of her smiling in my head was instant.

Sitting there waiting for a smile to break makes one feel like they are game hunting. You can’t hear the conversation but you can almost feel the climax coming on as soon as the smile starts to break, then there is a pause, and then the smile lingers till it breaks into laughter.
Yes, I made space for another green tie in my wardrobe and I am so proud of myself. To be utterly honest I don’t think any man should put a ceiling on how many neck ties they own let alone the ones in their favorite color. I recently picked up this grant Thomas tie with so much ease, in the course I found out that buying items on the strength of quality and aesthetics less the fuss about the label really goes a long way.
