Header Korner

Hello, good mutants and mutettes. If you had noticed the new manifestation of divine Kreation atop this blog and were wondering, What's the story with this?, you're in luck! Our latest header comes by way of longtime Korner affiliate and notorious street artist, Blenko. While some have construed his nom-de-plume as a reference to the anonymity of street art, or perhaps to the blank canvas that is the urban metropolis, the true origin of his/her name is much more humble. "BlendCo was actually just this brand of microwaveable chicken pot pies when I was growing up. I remember loving those things and thinking, 'One day, I too will have a name as famous as Blendco.' Guess it had a bigger impact on me than I thought."
The piece on display for you now is exemplary of Blenko's style, with a deft combination of political and social commentary, pressing the viewer to consider the political as personal and vice-versa, as well as sharks, which are fun to draw. Blenko's work has so been appreciated by the Korner enklave that the higher-ups decided to feature the 'Red Scare' character as a balloon in our inaugural Kreation Korner Thanksgiving Day parade, which will be staged at and around Central Park in New York, barring any prior reservations made my other entities. For now, take this two-dimensional rendering as a primer course in Steez.
