The Sweet Smell of Crypto

Who can resist the invigorating aroma of cryptocurrency mined through the persistent pumping of nasal passages? Finally, having a runny nose can lead to great profits! Breathe deep the smell of crypto-abundance.

Only 1 copy of this crypto-collectible exists on the Ethereum blockchain. That means only 1 person at a time can own the digital edition that I have issued. You can buy this rare digital art on the SuperRare marketplace--if you have the nose for it.

I came up with the idea for this crypto-art comic while driving home from an inspiring meeting at Cal State LA. That meeting had nothing to do with art or crypto. In fact it was a faith-based meeting which left me feeling grateful and extra excited about life. It was in the aftermath of this gathering that a totally unrelated and comical thought just popped into my mind. I actually consider it a fun bonus-present from God: that I was allowed to have a humorous vision of a person whose schnoz was being used to generate cryptocurrency.

Being so fond of the silliness of such a nasal crypto-miner that I had imagined, I immediately sketched a very rough draft of the concept while at a peaceful Southern California stoplight. My old smartphone with stylus came in quite handy for this quick sketching task. In fact, I used the original rough draft, drawn hastily on my phone (a Samsung Note 3), as the bottom layer of the same file on which I drew the final digital animation for this comic.

The program I used to draw this on my phone is called Autodesk SketchBook for Galaxy. I have cranked out a ton of drawings and finished artwork on this program, which came free with my phone. So it is definitely one of the best art tools I have ever acquired and used frequently.
