Artist/Graphic Designer, Paige Smith has been a busy little bee installing these paper gems all around Los Angeles for her latest art project called 'GEODE'.

The 3D paper sculptures are placed into existing spaces to mirror natural mineral formations. If you follow the link here, it’ll take you to a map the artist provides so that you can hunt down one of these urban treasures yourself.

"We as Black people have to tell our own stories. We have to document our history. When we allow someone else to document our history the history becomes twisted and we get written out. We get our noses blown off." - Erykah Badu, The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975.

If I’m too nice to certain people, they will just take advantage of me, simply because they see the opportunity to do so… How many times do I have to learn this lesson before it sinks in…

Hi Friends, my brand is steadily expanding. I’m a small business owner hoping to share my art with the masses one step at a time…I now have lots of fun products, and it’s steadily growing, all in an effort to show more positive representation for women of color everywhere from all over the globe! I currently have lined notebooks, buttons, pocket mirrors, desktop re-usable 2015 calendars that start this August 2014, wristlets, and clutches, and totes available for ordering, just message me here for details.  Please share and help spread the word about my art. We deserve to take up space, be celebrated, and empowered!!

Pancakes and Booze Art Show 2014

5 / 25 / 14

So the art show last night was amazing! I didn’t sell any pieces, but it was still great fun, yummy pancakes, great music, drinks—and I’m extremely grateful for everyone that attended to support me and my work. I’m going to continue to do my best with establishing this brand and striving to make representation for girls of color everywhere. 

Also, I got new products in, which I will be posting in a bit. I’m also scheduling a photo shoot for my products next week, so that’s exciting. Stay tuned!! And Thank You for all the support!!
