Pop Sandbox Launches Kenk

Congratulations on the long-awaited launch of Kenk: A Graphic Portrait, to Alex Jansen at Pop Sandbox and to the entire creative team behind the project (Alex; Richard Poplak; Jason Gilmore; and Nick Marinkovich).

Those living in Toronto last week would have found it difficult to avoid news of the launch (which formally occurred at a Thursday night party at the Cadillac Lounge reportedly attended by upwards of 500 people) – outlets providing coverage included CBC, the National Post, and cover treatment in NOW, which ensured that virtually everyone walking in the downtown core had the opportunity to be stared at by a particularly arresting (get it?) image of Mr. Kenk gazing from the NOW dispensers which line the streets.  At the Walrus, writer Rich Poplak provided an in-depth account of the creative process behind the visually stunning project.
