Update #3

New print portraits created.

Comment

Swoon has created four unique-variant portraits especially in support of this next leg of Konbit's work. Combining architectural salvage with Swoon's relief print style, screen printing, and hand painted details, they feature a finely wrought portrait of Walki, a young boy from Cormiers Haiti. The pieces just went up today -- one has already been claimed, but three of these lovelies are still available!
