NFT DIGITAL PAINTINGS
DISCLAIMER: NO PHOTOS WERE HARMED IN ANY OF MY NFTS.
The 24 seconds in this story represents the 24 hours in a day, and the daily routine tasks that compete for our attention.
Most of us spend our days consumed by work, by distractions, and by media. We tend to forget what is truly important and what should be the priority: the love that quietly waits.
In the pursuit of happiness, we find ourselves under the control of the red collar, the red tie, the red phone, and the other arresting demands of everyday modern life.
“Forever Waiting” is a message that our time is precious. It is a reminder that, as we get older, the meaningful relationships - family, friends and companions - draw closer to an end.
Life is short. Let’s not keep the ones we love forever waiting.
This is my first NFT minted as part of the 0x Society Grants Program.
Artwork rendered in 4K and 8K high quality compression for collectors.
The most important stage in the process. All artwork starts with a story, what is it I want to say? What is the message I want to convey to the audience when they are looking at my piece? What is the mood?
I sketch ideas, write notes, research through inspiration. The concept is thought out before gathering references and starting the actual process of painting and production.
Working in 8K resolution, allows for optimal resolution for physical NFT's galleries, projection and printing physical artworks.
Setting up the camera for Forever Waiting was a challenge, not only did I need to film vertical, I had to raise the camera near the top of the ceiling to get the proper angle. Luckily for me there was a ladder in the room :).
For Forever Waiting, I needed a green screen runway. I had to record at a top angle of a multiple walk cycles back and forth.
Once the green screen and camera has been setup the talent, performs multiple takes at multiple speeds, you just never know which one will work best in the artwork.
As you can see from the photo, I had to do my catwalk on the the catwalk ;)... This take never made it into the cut...
Sounds are recorded live for my artworks. I patiently record the right sounds and mix them into piece.
I try to record sounds in a quiet room, in quiet locations but sometimes you gotta just get out there, hope for the best and wait for the right moment :).
