I’m the creator and mayor of Blendini. Take a tour of my city! All of the drawings have been done by me.
Blendini City is a place that came from my imagination, but it feels very real to me. The buildings are all alive with many different personalities, behaviors, and outlooks. I love my city of the future. I truly do believe that the future doesn’t need to be bleak, overly techno-narcissistic, and should celebrate humanity.
I came up with the idea of Blendini City in the year 2018, after falling in love with my home city Philadelphia’s architecture and mourning over too many demolished treasures. I thought to myself, “what if buildings had feelings too?”. So I just started drawing neighborhoods, and I really had no idea I was going to create a whole world where I would reside as the Mayor.
I am proud I have created a place in my imagination where sentient buildings are just as important as the people within it. Through my drawings, I want to give you a window into what it’s like to live in Blendini City.
Being the Mayor, even through its challenges, has been an absolute joy. That’s because I’ve set out to create a city that is well-run, a joy to live in, and offers tremendous opportunities for its people and buildings. From its thrilling transit system to its mosaic of neighborhoods, I hope I can show Blendini City an alternative to how we think of the future city: an authentic place that celebrates the past, present, and future.
