In my last post, I showed the first three CNFTs in Love Machine Shorts #2, of which there will be 13 altogether. My intention at the time was to make two different versions of the collection, one for Cardano and another one for Tezos, based on the same initial sketches.
I made a list of visual distinctions and then made a test version of Stanislav the Chef to see if there were really enough differences to consider minting them on another network. I shrunk them to mobile size and looked at them next to each other. Showed them to a handful of tight friends in the space and asked for feedback.

It took a little longer than I wanted, but I’m finally producing the images for Love Machine Shorts #2. The first three are now listed on Genesis House, a relatively new NFT auction house and marketplace on Cardano.
There will be different versions of Shorts #2 — one for each blockchain network I’m eyeballing in the expansion of the project. Cardano will get the first set. By the end of the year I’ll release them on Tezos. I was planning to branch out to a second blockchain network in January, but I’ll be ready sooner.

When I scrawled the first set of five Love Machine heads, the goal was simply to experiment with brushes and drawing styles to help me figure out how I wanted to draw the collection. When I was finished with a few of them, I thought they were pretty cool and someone might like them.
That was before I knew PFP (profile pic) NFTs were such a popular category of art in this space. Now that I’ve seen how people use them on social media, it makes sense. And I’ve been asked many times when I’ll make more.

The last image I made for the Two-Tone collection, Disrupt, sparked an idea for this new collection by the same name. It got me thinking about not just the nature of disruption, but its function and place in human behavior.

Someone told me a few years ago that grunge was “out” and I needed to get used to designing everything in flat colors.
What a dumb thing to say.
Grunge, distressed, or whatever you call it, is here to stay.

Since my last post about the Tokhun x The Refresh collabaway, the collection of donated CNFTs grew to 60. That’s 60 CNFTs going out today to 60 randomly-chosen people.

This is the latest image in my Two-Tone collection, one that’s challenging my color sensibilities and, at times, making my eyes hurt.
Today’s untitled two-tone features colors chosen by Backwards Geometry (AKA Michael): #ff6666 and #020679.

This collaboration makes me so happy for lots of reasons.
Backwards Geometry is a very talented young painter who pushes his boundaries to grow as an artist. He’s one of my first collectors. And he’s a real sweet person for always talking me up and sharing my work with others.
Plus, I’m hoping one day he’ll tell me how to do geometry backwards.
