Tokyo – Stuck in Customs

Underbridge

Daily Photo – Underbridge

I think I spend at least 75% more time under bridges than the average person. Here is the result of one such occasion in Tokyo.

Thoughtful in Shinjuku

Daily Photo – Thoughtful in Shinjuku

You’ll, like me, have seen a number of views of this crazy junction in Tokyo. It’s one of the busiest in the world, if not the most busy. It’s been a few years since I was there and from what I read the buildings have changed quite a bit with older brands closing down and newer ones taking their place. It will be interesting to see just how much is different when I get back there (hopefully later this year!).

The Colors of Tokyo

Daily Photo – The Colors of Tokyo

I love the cool, blues and greens of Tokyo at night. They look great alone, but things really pop when mixed with the orange of the Tokyo Tower.

Tokyo 360

Daily Photo – Tokyo 360

It’s starting to look a bit more promising on the border/travel front in NZ and one of the first places I’m heading when things do open, other than to see the family, is Tokyo. Here’s a 360 shot from a previous trip… man, it’s been ages since I had that 360 camera out. I should really see what the new models offer before my next visit!

Mirror Stairs

Daily Photo – Mirror Stairs

I love it when designers get to go a bit nuts around escalators. I don’t mind if it’s some sort of classic architecture vibe, or something wild like this one in Tokyo. So much fun and way better than your average staircase!

I can’t tell if this guy has had an awesome evening, or a terrible one… either way he’s certainly had an experience!

When things work out with travel in and out of NZ task 1 is get back to the US to see the family… task 2: Get to Japan. Assuming they are open!

My Million Dollar Art Drop

What a crazy couple of days! Those of you who read the last newsletter or some recent posts will know that I launched a new collection of NFTs on OpenSea this past Tuesday. It’s my fourth drop overall after some experimentation previously on Foundation, MakersPlace and another on OpenSea. They were all great learning experiences (and exceeded expectations) and this week was no different.

The short version is that in 2 days, split over the 50 Cities/NFTs in the collection, over $1million USD was processed. My thanks to any of you who got involved, it’s really incredible and we are full of gratitude. Today, along with there being some items still available on the first and secondary markets, there are 4 auctions ending (LA, Moscow, Tokyo and Paris) if you want to get involved in the fun.

As I’ve mentioned in previous mails, I think NFTs are certainly something artists and collectors should be getting involved with now. The potential is huge, and I think it will be a big part of the art world in the future. That, along with giving back to other artists, is why I’m now investing in other NFT projects. I know it can be a bit daunting though, so I’ll be producing a bunch of how-to videos and recaps of my experience so far for Passport Subscribers. There are already 3 or 4 available which can be viewed after signing up ($9.99 a month, cancel any time, and on top of those NFT videos you get access to all of my tutorials to stream, preset downloads, eBooks and a weekly video which can be anything from processing tips to behind the scenes of helicopter rides in 360.). Once you’re in there, check this page for quick links to the previous NFT videos.

In terms of getting yourself involved in this drop… it’s fairly simple. You’ll need an electronic wallet (MetaMask is one that works with most NFT sites, others are available so definitely read some comparison articles). You’ll also want a way to get Crypto in/out from the “real world” and services like Coinbase are used for that (again, there are alternatives so do a bit of reading to see what’s best for you). If you’ve got questions, drop into my new Discord collectors group where there are a bunch of awesome, friendly people who will be happy to help. Feel free to join and just lurk or chat too as you ease yourself into this wild new world as a collector or creator.

*On re-reading this I just realised I automatically #’d NFT… too much posting on Crypto Twitter. Time to go take a solo lockdown walk…

Here’s a sneak preview of the drop and a little bit about the pricing strategy. I don’t really know if it will work or not. I have very low expectations… so I guess we will see!
