WGMeets has his fractal and glitch art pieces available for purchase with crypto (Ethereum) on Makers Place. These are 1 to 1 original pieces that will never again be minted as an NFT, we are also giving out 5000 WGM tokens to the first 5 that buy any pieces from there as well! All new pieces will be posted on this shop, own a piece a digital art today!
Sup people! Long time no write, yep still here and still working on things. Today I wanted to speak a bit about art platforms built on the blockchain that use crypto as payment and distribution of ownership. Now you guys know me, anything that’s art and crypto has my attention regardless of what network it’s built on.
My never ending quest and most recent journey to create / publish my own experimental pieces have led me to the below awesome places, sure there’s many more (Known Origin, but these are personally ones I’m going to investing time in. Accompanied with their names, I’ve included what non-crypto project they can be compared to at first glance for the purpose of familiarity. Putting together pieces so I can apply to SuperRare soon.
The header piece was done by me and a variant of it will be posted on Editional today but I have an animated version of it that I’m holding on to until I decide where it’s going :p
The below are are preview of some of the pieces I’ve created so far and have posted on Editional.
Hope to see you guys around those platforms, thank you for all the support so far and as always I’ll be on Twitter!
Art is life and amazing how it's always open to interpretation regardless of what thought or medium was used to create it. With soo many advances in the digital age we live in, visual expression was bound to hit the pixels hard and become something that many people participate in, converse and share. Now we have an amazing start in the art and collaborative space called DADA nyc, a visual social network where you can communicate, collaborate and occupy a space where expression is key. I absolutely love the idea of having daily topics where people create pieces from and also the ability to have someone else come in and draw in the same piece as you.
Visual conversation by artists at dada.nyc
Art is an amazing tool to communicate with, share our lives and thoughts, especially when no barriers and labels. I believe this site has an amazing idea and drawing tools (desktop only for now) for an amazing collaborative movement in a public space without getting arrested, haha. Their interface is primitive yet beautifully stylized and I love it, from the illustrated site buttons to the way type is utilized in menu options. Want to start drawing right away? Below is what you'll see once you click the pencil on the site's bottom center. Nice clean canvas... have at it.
They have also released their first art gallery named "Creeps & Weirdos" (see below) where you can even buy a piece of digital art using Ethereum (ETH), I am completely on board with cryptocurrency and glad they have their foot in it. Yes you can own limited edition art on the blockchain, once purchased you will received the edition number and the right to resell the piece as well. They are currently working on the certificate of ownership which will even further solidify this projects contribution to the art space. You can literally collect art that's limited and most importantly support the artist for their work, how cool is that?
Easily said this is a highly ambitious project and one that has very cool achievements already in the art and crypto space. There seems to be a great community there with folks sharing their pieces and coming together as artists to create. I am also going to start using the drawing tools myself and hopefully I'll see you guys there as well.
In an amazing mini-documentary, THE Jim Carrey has managed to blow me away with his expression and art. Confusing and complicated is the mind of an artist and blessed are we to somehow let those thoughts and emotions out. A great looks into his mind, his art and how life sometimes works it's way into solving heartbreak and feeling.
He mentioned something that struck a chord with me, being up late and creating which I used to do a lot. In a recent creative slump I have had many thoughts as to what is the contributing factor, be it time, energy or motivation but time frame might be a contributing factor. I create best when there's isolation and no interruptions, this might have sparked me trying to find a better way for me to work without being up at 3AM cause... work, haha.
Thank you Jim.
Hey giants! Sorry about the down time on the site, work and family stuff can keep you busy for a while hehe. My lil Giants are now 9, 3 and a soon to be 1 yr old, yep almost got my own basketball team but now I need energy, haha. So the geekery never stops in my house and there's been a disturbance in the usual digital world of playing Star Wars Card Trader which is dying off for me (another day) because of Topps' greed, I have two new sites/apps I use that are taking much of the little free time I have. See below for both and if you join, don't forget to add wgmeets! They are Clect and Neonmob, check the goodness below!
First up is Clect, I've been a non-posting member for a while but now that I am in the beta testing stages for their iOS app, I'm all for it and having fun uploading photos of my toy collection.
What’s Clect exactly? A website where you can upload pictures of all your collectibles, figures, toys and toy photography while being able to see others as well. Talk toys, like others collections and shoot the shite. You create packs (sets) and the photos you upload are cards that can go into whatever packs you like. They will also let you buy/sell in the near future which is a major plus for me since I have a few figures looking for good homes. I have sooooo many photos to take...
Check it out if you can and tell em wgmeets (add me) sent ya!
Secondly is Neonmob which is an online card trading site where you can collect other artists/photographers work, it's been very pleasant so far and some of the art there is pretty dope. Yes I am a digital card collecting addict... no shame haha.
They give out tons of freebie cards daily and when or if you decide to buy coins to open packs, the artists are actually getting some of that, you can also buy prints of their work if you really dig their work also! You can create sets (70% royalty) also which is a part of the service I am currently working on creating a set for. So many art styles and I already collected all cards from an Animal Crossing set, yes there is an Animal Crossing set haha.
The traders are pleasant and the experience has been good so far, don't forget to add me and send me a trade! I like the browser IU, good clean design and the iOS app currently in the works is shaping up to be a great on the go addiction... err addition. Yeah addition.
