I started making these with optimism in October 2016 but the messages soon lost their colors in favor of shades of gray, the space between the starkness of black and white. All binaries have their in-between. Is it even possible to meet in the middle anymore?
❤️Happy Birthday Daisy and Clyde! ❤️ . Big thanks to @kittenrescuela for the advice back when I found these little acorns and their feral mother in the garden 11 years ago today. 🙏 . #bestcats #bestlives #daisyandclydeforever #daisyandclydeinstagrambirthdayblitz #catsfromthegarden #housecats #meow #catinspiration #catsruleme #toxoplasmosis
Photographs from the READINGS deck are included in Transworld @nicodimgallery opening tonight 6-8! The photos chosen for this exhibition were from a reading done with the cards a few weeks ago... THE PHOTOGRAPHS CHOSE THEMSELVES. Frames match the colored borders of the cards. Another version will be included in Transworld @nicodimgallery in Bucharest next week. Parallel universes diverge.
Remember this one made during the halcyon days of 2016 when we thought without a doubt that the glass ceiling would shatter? . . . Celebrate all things lady at the Every Woman Biennial opening today Sunday June 2 4-7 at the Bendix Building 1206 S Maple. Up til June 12. Tons of artists and tons of great work! #everywomanbiennial #everywomanbiennial2019 #skysthelimit #hillary #kindofstillwithher
This old sweater, again????? Although I made it in 2009, it sadly never seems to go out of style and the sentiment has been ringing true since 1973. #nationalnetworkofabortionfunds #plannedparenthood #keepabortionsafeandlegal #keepabortionlegal
I know the idea, that all “men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights,” but if you’re a woman and you don’t believe in a “Creator” (rights-giving or otherwise), you gotta fight for your right to party and also for the right to your own flesh. $500 to any organization offering support to women suffering under draconian anti-women policies and this drawing is yours. #plannedparenthood #nationalnetworkofabortionfunds #keepabortionlegal #alabama
Cancelling abortion rights and cancelling the EPA, forgetting that the web of life has us all connected.... #plannedparenthood

Though I wasn’t a Michael Jackson “fan” I was strangely affected by him dying, especially in such an over the top way, seeking sleep so desperately he asked doctors to put him under general anesthesia. Beneath that weird childlike veneer was a wild unruliness that was terrifying and boundless and much more difficult to understand than your basic rockers who were biting off bat heads or killing band mates. Michael Jackson was basically more fucked up than anyone else and this complexity was endearing, repelling, and disproportionately meaningful to me and perhaps much of my generation for whom Thriller was a new release. I made this sweater after learning of his death by propofol in 2009. That mural on Melrose appeared soonafter. Posting this on the occasion of the new HBO documentary which has Jackson back in the collective consciousness (though one could argue he never really left). #knitting #sweaters #michaeljackson #neverland #neverneverland #propofol
And just like that, it was gone! With a poof of patchouli, the Psychic Art Advisor disappeared into the space of dreams and memories. Thank you to everyone who helped to make this happen during @friezeartfair this past weekend- Ali for the invitation, Max for the patience and organizational support, Sarah and Lauren @gavlakgallery for all the help, Joel for keeping me from tearing my hair out, and of course the incredible psychic art advisors — Alpine Moon @estela_ojo, Ivette @ivettesoler and Jerry @jerrysaltz Thank you too to everyone who participated by getting a reading and everyone who helped in ways large and small. Together we made dreams come true.... and isn’t that what Hollywood is all about? 🌈⭐️
Please visit Pyschic Art Advisor today and tomorrow @friezeartfair at the Paramount lot. It’s supposed to be sunny all day, perfect opportunity for chillin on the backlot. #friezela

Buy some stuff to benefit our mission of getting more artists and art students to vote in swing districts across the U.S. We don’t care who they vote for, we’re just trying to get democracy back on track again, starting with they idea that voting can actually make a difference, even while acknowledging the holes in the system. Let’s not give up, people! Join us! Or just drop by and say hi and buy some dem swag.
🙏Thank you to everyone who came out last night to @gavlakgallery to see my big show of knitted bookshelves! Great to see so many buddies old and new! Show will be up until March 16! Thank you Alex Slade for the goofy photo!
Bookshelves as far as the eye can see! Installing @gavlakgallery today. Show opens tomorrow 4-6! #booksofinstagram #bookshelves #getlitandknit
A bookshelf full of books about yoga and related pursuits, the appeal of deep knowledge and curiosity, volumes of thought and a lifetime of reflection and practice. Thanks @flyingstudio_la for taking the shots at the studio! Show opens Saturday @gavlakgallery This one is called “Yoga for Americans” and it’s knit.
Reminders of the transience of life always strike me the hardest when considering the mortality of the animals I share my life with. Drew this card this morning, always one that hits deep on many levels. #readingsdeck #thistooshallpass #inthecards #cardsandcats #tarotcats #catsofcats
This is happening. Please come see the show!
First day back at school for the semester! Nice to see this hanging in the gallery as part of the Campus Mail Art show.
Lines of power are all tangled up. A card for today. Local, global, universal.

This one is dedicated to all the Bretts out there who went to elite prep schools in the eighties and were saved from being serial rapists by their love of drinking. Sometimes beer really is your best friend. $500 to any organization supporting women or survivors of sexual violence and this one’s yours. #toodrunktofuck #brett #bretts

Are sweater vests the new sweaters in our warming climate? Ugh, I already miss the sleeves! Take Back the House fundraiser Sunday night at Ghebaly- 5:30 sharp let’s enthusiastically welcome Katie Hill- the woman whom we totally expect to be the new congressperson from CA 25! Stay til 10 and buy art drink beer eat food, sign up to vote, get psyched, get wasted, donate money, sign up to be a phone banker, meet people, cry, whatever. Let’s turn this thing around so someday the humans left on this planet will be able to wear long sleeved sweaters again! Link in bio for more info #takebackthehouse2018 #katiehillforcongress2018 #ghebalygallery
⬆️Silkscreen collab with Kate Mosher Hall for Take Back the House 🏠 fundraiser Sunday at Ghebaly Gallery. Come at 5:30 sharp to eat pizza, drink beer and meet Katie Hill, who is running for US House in California’s 25th district. @katiehillforcongress We in LA are surrounded by republican congressional districts and this fundraiser benefits Katie Hill and @swingleft - an organization working to flip red to blue on November 5. Support this important work by showing up, volunteering, or by buying some art! Over 100 artists have donated and there is something at every price point! Give some art a forever home while supporting democratic candidates. Also, please vote on November 6. Link in bio.
Let’s do this, people!!! Here in LA we are surrounded by 5 districts that could possibly flip into Democratic hands. Please join us at this fundraiser for Swing Left! It’s at Ghebaly Gallery, Sept 23, 6-10. Buy art, eat food, and celebrate the possibilities that democracy can bring us if we work to bring this country to a place we are a little more psyched to be part of. Lots of great artists! Thank you @pjackson600 for organizing this!
Flashback Monday! One of the first sweater designs I ever made back in 2004, but I didn’t end up ever making the sweater because I thought “is real” would be misread as “Israel.” LOL. Well, unfortunately for all of us, it isn’t getting any less relevant so maybe now’s the time to get cracking on this one....before it’s too warm to wear sweaters....
