Richard Swift: Musician, Artist & Blogger Excellente

tumblr_le4fsjq7Bc1qd5iogo1_500Richard Swift has a Tumblr, and it’s just the best. Cryptic and soulful, it’s the perfect gateway to his unique talent and aesthetic. Swift’s amazing visual work fills much of the space. Mostly greyscale and many collage-based, the pieces have a foot firmly set in outsider art. The other foot is stomping a kick-drum. Yesterday morning, we awoke to find this piece — “Swanson” — at the top of the page. We have two Swansons in the SC office. Also, see Swift’s badass “Walt Wolfman” series.
