Red vs Blue

As we gather here on Valentine’s Day, we are reminded by today’s doubleheader that opposites attract.

Color Scientists might quibble that colors don’t actually have “opposites”, and ok – they’re right.

But never let the facts get in the way of a (mildly) clever intro.

diaries of compulsive obsessions by tjo

  • Mint Date: Feb 20th

  • Supply: 50

  • Price: 1 ETH

  • Link

I still remember that moment in 2022 when tjo turned my entire Twitter timeline blue.

It started when he released BLeU as a 1/1, which sold for an astonishing 69 ETH. But more importantly, he launched it as a public domain artwork (CC0), meaning anyone could remix it into their own NFTs if they liked – which of course meant everyone did.

Blue shades are once again prominent in compulsive obsessions, but this time they take a back seat to storytelling.

tjo posted a video yesterday (delivered via vintage CRT format) that gives us the only clues we have about the collection:

  1. It’s a choose-your-own-journey with multiple chapters.

  2. It uses ERC-7160, where creators can add new images, and collectors can choose which ones to display.

  3. It aims to replicate the OCD experience. So expect puzzles, IRL events, and other moments that cause collectors to obsess over tiny details.

We’ve seen storytelling NFTs before, but rarely with such a small supply (50 NFTs in this case), which makes this a more intimate and exclusive experience for those who join the cabal.

Seven by RedruM

  • Mint date: Feb 27th

  • Supply: 500

  • Price: 0.1 ETH

  • Link

Another color-obsessed artist.

In RedruM’s case, however, it’s deep and luxurious red tones that flood all of his AI works.

It’s his trademark, along with a focus on retro super-villain characters laughing maniacally for unknown-but-probably-nefarious reasons.

Although he’s mostly dealt in 1/1s until now, yesterday he announced a partnership with Braindrops to release his first-ever large collection this month.

Seven revolves around the seven deadly sins of Christianity: envy, wrath, lust, gluttony, pride, sloth, and greed (plus some additional easter eggs and tributes).

And while it is known that Mint or Skip readers are pious creatures of pure body and spirit, this could be a fun one for those who are at least curious about the temptations plaguing less heavenly beings.

NOTE: These drops are lightly curated. Our only requirement is that they have recognizable founders. As usual, DYOR. To learn more go here.

Stirring Emotions

Pseudonymous curator spAce celebrates the 1-year anniversary of his prolific Space World platform with a group of more than 55 artists in Stirring Emotions, a collection of newly minted 1/1s.

There’s no collective theme shared between the pieces, just a ton of cool art up for sale at vast array of prices, a little something for everyone, including works by creators previously mentioned on Mint or Skip, like RedruM, bongdoe, and Space Case, among others.

Flippers by Crow

Orlando-based artist Crow will soon release this offbeat collection of hand-crafted art pieces that double as PFPs, depicting the ubiquitous Web3 character of The Flipper, a.k.a. The Degen, a.k.a. Mr. Paperhands.

Crow’s abstract style, which has attracted notable collectors in the past, is somewhat visible in the Flippers art through its shading. Also of note, the tokens are inscribed on “Block 78” sats, for those inclined to believe in that notation system.

Satirical art about the readers of this newsletter. So hot right now.

Way to Gods

Way to Gods (WTG) makes up the second season of Mittaria, a project by Thai entertainment company T&B that’s focused on building IP through gamified experiences, currently partnered with Animoca Brands.

Details on WTG’s holder benefits are limited right now, but it promises a gamified ecosystem of social quests where those most engaged will be rewarded via partner collaborations, prize pools, etc.

Holders of the project’s genesis collection get a free WTG mint. And while the whitelist mint is no longer accessible, there’s still a public raffle mint available to anyone.
