swindle_lede Swindle, billed as “the definitive pop culture and lifestyle publication” has folded according to a source in the industry. The artsy bi-monthly was founded in 2004 by Roger Gastman and Shepard Fairey. The duo reportedly had a falling out in 2007. Fairey, the money man, left after issue 15, leaving Gastman to run the magazine into the ground only four issues later.
