I have been on the computer less, while experimenting with a new way to stay in touch, express myself and keep you all up to date with my art projects, without using social media.
I started a monthly ZINE! It’s words, art and ink on paper that you can hold in your hands, and it doesn’t need a battery, username or password. Print media is different from digital, and I’m learning a lot about how to tell stories this way.
My goal is to make one once a month. They are free. You can pick one up at either of my studios at the Log Cabin Print Shop in Old Washington, or the Pendleton Art Center in Cincinnati. I’ll also include one with any online sales through my website. If you want me to mail you one, all you have to do is mail me a $1 bill (to cover the cost of stamp and envelope) to: Ken Swinson Po box 84 Old Washington, KY 41096
Finished carving the design for my second ginger jar. The colors will be a classic cobalt blue over white stoneware. I hope to have it fired and finished in 2 weeks

Ken is a self-taught artist from rural Kentucky, whose work includes painting, printmaking, animation and ipad art. He considers himself to be a 'lifetime learner' and he uses art as the vehicle to explore and learn more about the world around him. Much of his work reflect his optimistic views on rural folk culture, river life and simple pleasures.
You can visit Ken every Final Friday of the month at studio 400 at the Pendleton Art Center in downtown Cincinnati. He can also be found picnicking near his home in the Historic Village of Old Washington, KY.
