3 CNFTs from Love Machine Shorts #2 are live on Genesis House

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.

a tale of two socially-constructed English conventions

When irregardless was first added to Merriam-Webster’s unabridged dictionary, I was appalled just like many other people. Like the person who posted this comment to Merriam-Webster on Twitter:

“Yep. English is literally dead.”

As soon as I stop rolling my eyes about what a fucking drama queen the person who said that must be, let’s unpack this objection. I’ll get to both literally and dead when my eyes recover from muscle strain.

CNFT creators: How to tell if your asset’s policy is valid, and what to do if it’s not

It’s recently come to my attention — because I went down one of my rabbit holes — that some CNFTs are being minted with “unknown” policies. This happened with one that I recently minted.

Since I didn’t get to view or edit the policy prior to the minting process, I didn’t know if it locked, or when, or any of its other attributes. So I looked up the asset on pool.pm and and immediately noticed something wasn’t right when I saw the policy icon.

AmoebidApes swag from Tokhun partner kwillterz has dropped on our front porch

AmoebidApes are, according to their creator, “an undiscovered evolutionary branch formed from a direct genetic link between amoebids and apes.”

Whatever unholy abomination that would really turn out to be, it wouldn’t be nearly as adorable as one of these pocket-sized creatures drawn by Tokhun partner artist kwillterz.

new Two-Tone CNFT, and higher resolution images in my NFTs

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.

[collab] Dusting it up with kick-ass abstract mixed media painter Backwards Geometry

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.
