Poppies! Also saw a rattlesnake, but didn't stick around to take his portrait.

On this #InternationalWomensDay I stand in solidarity with those who strike to demand equality, justice and human rights for all women... and to #resist patriarchy, fascism, xenophobia, and oppression. Shout out to the ladies for keeping this world going. And thank you Niki Williams (and Yosi) from @taskforce.pr for letting me be a part of this project #daywithoutawoman #whyistrike #womansmarchla

Should be titled, "Trump's Cabinet."

Couldn't find any of those little candy hearts. This'll have to do! Happy Balentine's day!#NonstandardValentine #BarbaraKruger #EliBroadCollection

Birthday dinner with the woman I love. @genstarchild #NotMyFood #ThatsALamp

I had a dream last night that as we were working on the Thank You Card art installation, Amy Goodman came into the warehouse to interview us about the project and the role of art as a vehicle for political change. Needless to say, I was star struck, and since "the boss" wasn't around, I volunteered to do the interview.
Since it was a dream, the details are a little fuzzy, but I remember saying something like, "Protest art is really bordering on graphic design (my FORMER career), and graphic design is really just a tool for clear communication, with the intent of distilling big complex ideas down to into powerful bite sized chunks that people can wrap their heads around and move forward into social action." Yes, these are the things I dream about now.

There were a lot of great signs at today's #WomensMarch in #DTLA . I was able catch a few of my favorites #SignOfTheTimes .

Now that I have cell service again, I can finally post a pic of the "Thank You Card" I collaborated on with @kalakaricrew, @a35mmlife and the team from @taskforcepr for the #WomensMarch today in #DTLA . It was an amazing experience and I'm glad I was able to bring my daughter be a part of it. And a big THANK YOU to everyone who came together to make this installation happen. As someone who normally works solo, I was totally floored by the amazing team of talented artists, designers, makers, builders, craftspeople and creatives of all kinds who came together to pull this off in a matter of just a few days. #StayLoud

I got emotional seeing this tucked into my car window this morning. Usually these cards say "We buy junk cars cheap!" When I realized what this was actually selling, it gave me hope for our future.
