For over two years Mark Addison Smith has been keeping a visual catalogue of strange, funny, awkward, and quirky conversations he’s overheard. Each day he writes down things he hears and at the end of the day creates simple yet effective text based illustrations based on the one liners. What started Mr.Smith on this epic project? Here’s what started it all in the artists own words- ” The idea for this on-going series came about in 2008 during an evening walk to the train. A girl approached me in the Chicago Loop and asked me for a cigarette. I don’t smoke. She replied, “ahh, you look like the right type” and ran off. I ran home and illustrated her words, and have been drawing dialogue ever since.”
