Hey, y’all! I’m excited to say I’m dropping my first CNFT collection today on Tokhun when they launch their marketplace today on Cardano. The devs have been working so hard making sure everything works properly before we go live with sales.
The easy way is efficacious and speedy, the hard way arduous and long. But, as the clock ticks, the easy way becomes harder and the hard way becomes easier. And as the calendar records the years, it becomes increasingly evident that the easy way rests hazardously upon shifting sands, whereas the hard way builds solidly a foundation of confidence that cannot be swept away.
It’s called the human spectacle and, thanks to my sponsor Li₿erty.Crypto., will have the following pieces.
And … if I can manage to fix what I did wrong in the minting process, this one:
Tokhun is also collecting NFT donations from us for a giveaway to celebrate the launch. I submitted these:
I literally could not have dropped this whole thing today without the backup from the Tokhun founders and partner artists. They’re some of the most incredible, supportive people I’ve had the pleasure to meet.
Looking forward to exploring this huge, new, fun thing with all of them.
Thanks to everyone for your support and encouragement! Can’t wait to put these up for sale.
Here’s a sneak peek into a future project. I’m still making work for my text art collection, the human spectacle. But that collection is in black and white and I needed to make something in color today.
Great news — I found out yesterday I’ve been accepted into Tokhun’s Partner Artist program. We get to break things for them in testing.
Oh, and our new NFTs are displayed on the home page gallery. Which is also pretty cool. Speaking of which …
Minting an NFT is not always a straightforward process, especially when the platform is still in development. I had some trouble and broke my first two mints in such a way that it caused them to be in a “weird state,” according to one developer.
Not sure yet what that means on the blockchain, but the Tokhun devs told me the error revealed an edge case they haven’t seen yet. So, for once I helped by breaking something. I wish it could always be like that.
One developer worked with me for a couple hours this morning through our chat on Telegram till he found a solution. (That’s startup tech support — up close and personal.) All so I could create a couple NFTs and publish them.
When you click on them, you can see the asset information and metadata.
As of this writing, Tokhun.io and CNFT.io are the only two NFT platforms with marketplaces on Cardano. I chose Tokhun even though they’re still working on their marketplace and we’re not able to auction on the platform yet. I appreciate their cautious approach with this newfangled tech, and it’ll be up soon.
Then I’ll get to break more shit while we help them test the marketplace functions. Hooray!
In the meantime, I’ll be making and posting more art. Lots of it, apparently. I tried this just to learn about NFTs and accidentally started a second business.
So follow me on Twitter to catch updates and find out when I’ll drop my first collection.
I like to mess around in Gimp with my graphics tablet. Maybe one day someone will build a wet brush function or some other way to simulate dirty mixing.
Hey, if you write Python scripts and don’t mind taking payment in the form of stolen deviled ham, meet me tomorrow night at 10:00 behind the Applebee’s by the airport. I’ll be standing by the dumpster wearing a pink chiffon dress, a life preserver, and a blonde wig.
A woman can’t be too careful these days, so wear a trench coat so I know it’s you and not some weirdo.
