Chris Stein of BLONDIE photo exhibit

Blondie guitarist and primary songwriter Chris Stein has an opening of his photography tonight at the Morrison Hotel gallery at the Sunset Marquis. He has amazing photos of his friends and contemporaries. He and I are collaborating on a poster of Joan Jett that he took on Blondie’s first trip to LA. Look out for that soon with at least some being signed by me, Chris, and Joan. This show is not to be missed!

OBEY Awareness: Honor The Treaties

Today marks the official launch to our new OBEY Awareness campaign, Honor the Treaties. Honor the Treaties is an organization dedicated to amplifying the voices of indigenous communities through art and advocacy. We do that by funding collaborations between Native artists and Native advocacy groups so that their messages can reach a wider audience. Every shirt sold through this campaign helps support a Native artist and their work with a partner organization. All funding is channeled through The Lakota People’s Law Project (501c3).  Click here for  Honor the Treaties t-shirts.

Stamping Money is not Illegal

If you have been frustrated by the bureaucracy around political corruption and campaign finance reform, take direct action to make your voice heard! Check out the site started by Ben Cohen, long time progressive activist and co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s. I may do a money stamp for them. Turns out that stamping money is not illegal, but it is a great canvas for discouraging political bribery that should be illegal. Get stampin’!

Celebrities join prison hunger strikers in protesting isolation

As someone who has been arrested 16 times for street art, I am very familiar with the brutality of law enforcement. Fortunately I’ve never had to stay in jail more than three days in a row.
Even though my crimes have all been minor I have been beaten up and denied the insulin I need as a type 1 diabetic. On several occasions I feared for my life when I was made very sick by being denied insulin or any medical attention until I was vomiting uncontrollably.. I can only imagine the inhumane treatment inmates at real prisons are subjected to. As the saying goes, power corrupts and absolute peer corrupts absolutely. The hunger strike, an extreme action, going on by California prisoners to protest inhumane treatment is a clear indication of how extreme the mistreatment of inmates is. Prisoners or not, these are human beings who deserve human rights. Read more on the situation and stand up for human rights. Thanks for caring.

We Are Bradley Manning

I contributed my name to this NY Times ad in support of Bradley Manning. With his intelligence clearance, Manning saw things being perpetuated in the name of the USA that he thought most  Americans would oppose if they only knew. Manning is a whistleblower driven by his conscience, not a perpetrator of espionage. Check out the NY Times ad and info on Manning’s case.
