Long time visitors to the blog will have seen a number of Web3/NFT/Crypto posts over the past few years. From early explorative discussions I had while walking the Camino to my own drops more recently. It’s a part of the tech world that fascinates me and has been a hugely interesting experience to delve into. One of the greatest aspects of that has been the community experience and often the real-life connections that have been made. Here’s a fun post from one of the people I’ve connected with along the way about how Web3 has changed his and his family’s life… featuring a little bit of me. 🙂
This is one of the images from my Fine Art collection which get fabricated in Germany by those Master Printers at Grieger… Recently I did a fun collection of NFTs where there were 6 that had a physical artwork attached. If you hold the NFT on a set date you get the physical print too. That claim period is now open for those who hold them and I can’t wait to see where they end up!
This project took a bit over 500 hours to complete simply in the writing alone, much less the 1000s of hours to travel to all these locations across all seven continents. Altogether, there are over 120,000 words, which is the same as a long, beautiful novel.
Mixed in the 1,000 one-of-ones are 6 Uber-Uniques where you get the actual print! Exciting! Whoever owns one of those six unique NFTs on March 31 will be able to hang the physical print wherever they wish!
—BEAUTIFUL CITIES OF THE WORLD HOLDERS—
If you are a Beautiful Cities of the World collector, you’ll be getting a free airdrop! Make sure you have registered to grab it. Here is your Premint link.
We’ve also set aside some Premint allowlists for AiVATAR owners. There will be airdrops for you cats at a later date, but it’s just not mathematically possible now with this collection of 1,000 to give to a collection of 6,000. But we’re at work on Phase 2 there, so no worries. Here is your Premint link.
On Dec 19th, the mint will go live and there will be a 2-day period before the big reveal. We have a cool system that will reveal one photo per minute until all 1,000 are revealed. The whole process will take approximately 16.6666666 hours, so that will be a fun day indeed!
I’ll be doing some live videos and voicechats along the way in addition to taking lots of questions. I am so excited about this release, and I hope you are too!
Here’s a little peek inside the latest fractal creation. This is the flat version of the 360 render which stretches out to envelop you in VR/360. It’s a crazy render, days to create… 30,000 frames, hundreds of gigabytes of data and custom audio but the early versions are an awesome journey to experience.
It’s been a while since I shared some of my fractal art. The last fractal, Heart Chakra, which was a collab with the awesome Tina Guo sold out on OpenSea. Now there are 2 new renders incoming with existing Heart Chakra holders getting a free one! Here’s a little preview from one of them which has an interesting collab and backstory for another day…
Here’s a slice of the Heart Chakra fractal I worked on with the awesome Tina Guo. You can see the full video here which features her awesome cello. If NFTs are your thing you can grab those over here and each contains a different written “heart musings” by Tina and myself.
