[Tezos] Love Machine Shorts #1 Collector’s edition album and PFPs

Love landed on Tezos this week in the form of a full-color, limited-edition, 22-page PDF documenting the original oil paintings from 2008 and the Cardano NFTs I sold.

I’ll not be selling the same images as single NFTs on Tezos. I still wanted to introduce the project to the Tezos community, and I’m comfortable using them to produce a unique NFT that will not be available anywhere else.

This album is similar to the one I minted on Cardano, but with edited text, added images from the 2008 series of oil paintings, and my comments about each piece. There are only 10 editions, and they are listed for 15 XTZ each on Objkt.

You can view the full PDF there, but here’s an appetizer.

Three brand new Tezos Love Machine PFPs are also available on Hic et Nunc as of last night. I’m using the same composition to make these, but the renderings are all unique. My page also shows the hastily-written NFTs (complete with grammar mistakes and typos) I minted to establish provenance of the entire project.

There are three editions of each image, listed for 6 XTZ each on Hic et Nunc.

I never used Krita before starting this project a few months ago, so I’m having fun playing with different brushes and experimenting with style. It’s going to change over time, of course. And quickly, since I haven’t drawn this much in a very long time.

Not sure where I’m getting the creative energy for this much throughput, but I’m so inspired by the constant stream of diverse art created by others from the NFT community.

Thank you, fellow creators, for feeding my soul. And thanks to art lovers from Cardano, Tezos, and Ethereum for sharing my work. Multichain projects will help to promote inclusivity and cooperation in the larger blockchain ecosystem. That’s part of what Love Machine is all about.
