One of our all-time favorites, and 2x cover artist, Brooklyn-based Swoon, just started a print website, Swoon in Print, where she will be releasing limited-run prints.

Read More and Swoon cameos in Diplo Video

Graffiti // Wednesday, September 05, 2012
I have been on a Major Lazer music marathon lately and of course that means I have been listening to plenty of Diplo. While watching videos this morning to get pumped for the day, I ran across the “Express Yourself” video by Diplo, which basically consists of more ass shaking than anything.  If you watch closely, the video has a quick frame where a Read More Books sticker is the main focus and Swoon's wheatpastes act as a backdrop for a majority of the song.

New Swoon in Brooklyn

Street Art // Tuesday, June 19, 2012
New Swoon pieces have been popping up around Brooklyn and they are a stand out among all the amateur attempts at “street art” you become desensitized to seeing.  As usual, this piece is highly intricate in its cuts and line work.
