Tokhun’s marketplace launches today, and I’m dropping _the human spectacle_

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 Liâ‚żerty.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.

[preview] the fifth, for my second NFT collection

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.

Thanks for the music while I was drawing, Session Twelve.

I’ve lost five family members in the last year and a half. Elderly aunts and uncles, mostly. But the fifth was a cousin and it hit me pretty hard. So I made this to say goodbye to her.

Goodbye, Beth. We’ll miss you.
