SWELL Artist of the day 
Johnny Ray

I'm fascinated by the way modern people react to whoopee cushions, joy buzzers, and other sordid gag gifts. Some find them humorless and repulsive. Others will laugh and share them with friends. When I was a teenager, I bought a plastic dog turd that you could hide keys inside of. I like to think of my work as a visual representation of that.
