Header Korner

Hello, you! On this, the day of ritual turkey massacre in the name of a national fiction, we bring you cutting political commentary in the only form that seems to sell these days -- gritty, high-contrast, faux-stencil, post-pop graphic art! It's true we couldn't get hold of the two most ubiquitous practitioners of the medium, Banksy and Shepard Fairey. Our plea to their publicists to "do us a solid" was roundly rejected. Typical left-wing conspiracy.

Luckily for you, however, "failure" isn't in the Kreationist playbook. ("Earth-shattering poetic prophecies in an abandoned paint factory," on the other hand...) But I digress. You may notice at the top that, against all odds, we have managed to create a statement that is both a visual treat and an incisive political thought-piece of devastating implications. There's even some reading involved! The pun might take a little while to grab you, but be patient. This piece is most rewarding after multiple viewings, kind of like a James Cameron film. Yes, I'm proudly drawing a comparison between our current header, and Titanic.
