The sketches and doodles of Shawn Smith have evolved over the years into whimsical shapes as an artistic analogue for community and diversity. Kids naturally responded to them because they are accessible and friendly but so did adults. Smith aims to to impart an emotion with his art but wants the viewer to define and project their own meaning of that emotion.

Shawn’s balloon is a reminder of the tenants of love, togetherness, and community. These three shapes are the closest of friends but they are all different reminding us that love blends and connects us.

100% of profits go to the charity of the artist's choice: Brave Space Alliance.

You Are Beautiful

You Are Beautiful started as a passion project by Matthew Hoffman in 2002 with 100 stickers and with a goal to help people feel better every day. Today, over 5 million stickers have traveled the globe and morphed into hats, totes, wall art and more. Share positivity with this message, and remind each and every single person to be confident in who they are. There’s no one you need to try to be, other than yourself. Just be you, and that’s enough.
