There are moments in time, when exponential change occurs. The renaissance, the invention of the automobile, the writing of HTML code, and now, in 2021 where we have seen Cryptocurrency, NFTs and the metaverse rapidly rise on a societal level.
For a multimedia artist like myself, it’s a profound moment in time, where I have let myself be swept away by the changing currents, not knowing exactly where I’ll go. This project brings together everything that I have been creating with Bleace for the past decade, writing two novels, directing two short films, designing multiple lines of clothes, and creating an online store. All of the countless hours, infinite obstacles, has lead to this space and time, and to quote Morpheus; what has happened, happened and couldn’t have happened any other way.
Come Virtually Hangout to experience Our first VR Lounge & Theater! Where you will hear exclusive music by Shark Anthony and view original pieces done in collaboration with Jasko Mujiovic and Tommy Robinson. You will also be able to share your latest piece for others to see instantly.
For the past decade, Bleace has been an ongoing project that I have dedicated my life to. I wrote the Bleace novels to provide a different perspective, one I could have used when I was younger.
It has never interested me in taking Bleace to a production studio or to a book publisher as it would go against the very essence of the story. NFTs change the old primitive concept of writers having to go to a production company in order to make a living. NFTs change that ancient paradigm and instead makes fans and the community the producer of the work as they can own a piece of the work.
Bleace’s first complete NFT collection is comprised of various 3D animations as well as character sketches that I drew while writing my first novel. These beings all live on the free-floating planet of Consumptia, where the currency is flesh and everyone is high on Zerk. These novel-based NFT characters are the next step for Bleace, with many more steps to follow. The next will be to expand on these sketches to create 3D characters and an environment for them to live on, one of the thousands of planets that have collided with the free-floating planet of Consumptia. Some of these environments will be host to more VR events like the Lounge & Theater, except it will be exclusive to NFT holders.
As these NFT projects progress, the unlockable content will grow as well. For this collection, I am offering a free signed soft cover novel or a free ebook download plus 10% off your entire first purchase at bleace.com!
