Juxtapoz // Sunday, October 06, 2013
Our friend Swampy has been off the radar, something he is accustomed to doing and he does it very well. Where has he exactly been for the last year or even more?

Banksy: "Rebel Rocket Attack"

Juxtapoz // Sunday, October 06, 2013

Blood High Five Sterls. Blood High Five.
