Swampy, Oakland’s legend in the making, has just put two two new beautiful works through Paper Monster: a hand-finished print and an original drawing.
The print, Owl of Yawn, is a two-color print on hand-dyed paper with hand finishing in ink and graphite. It is Swampy’s first print (not including his photo prints of course). Not sure what this really does to the prints, but Paper Monster says that “before releasing this edition of prints, he kept them locked in the closet of an abandoned house owned by an infamous cult in Oakland.” Owl of Yawn is an edition of 40, measures 20 x 26 inches and is available for $350.
The drawing, I Like Disappearing, features Swampy’s trademark character and the phrase, “I like disappearing,” which has been popping up in his work recently. It measures 20 x 25 inches and is available for $700.
