I have a fairly healthy obsession with the work of Cole Swavely, recent graduate of RISD’s MFA Printmaking program. I think the interest is seeded partially in my passion for pseudo-motivational posters and the like—ironic interpretations of classic mantras. Cole’s work has a militant edge to it, pulling its inspiration for workout rituals and other forms of training.

Anyhow, he now has an Etsy shop. I picked up a few prints and you should, too.
