about

ABOUT

This is Art project is the first collection to be launched by Thumbs and is inspired by the challenges of life. We’ve no doubt all experienced challenges of some kind in our time, whether that be investing time into your work too put food on the table, while also wanting to spend time with your children and making sure your loved ones still feel valued. All while needing to find time to keep fit, eating the right foods and many other hurdles - and frankly it can be exhausting and there never feels like there are enough hours in the day to get it done.

These characters are the depictions of those very conundrums. Packed out with some unrivalled and achievable utility as well as having a ranking system in place, this collection is looking to give back to those that get involved from the very start. You don’t want to miss out on this one!

FAQ

“Parody and fair use is a grey area in itself. Taking a well known character, mass producing merch and using it’s IP for monetary gain is a blatant infringement of copyright. However, using a well known character in a form of parody or in a satirical way can be argued that it’s protected by the Parody Law which falls under the First Amendment in the US as a form of freedom of speech. When I create a piece of art using part of a well known character, I do my best to alter and dilute that character as much as possible. For example, with my Self Loathing series, let’s take the Bat piece - what percentage of the artwork is Batman? What percentage is Morbius? By redesigning, redrawing and reconstructing these characters, I’m creating a whole new character and therefore it becomes a piece of art which stands alone. In keeping with parody art by laws, my art is not mass produced, but made on a limited scale so as not to encroach on any studio’s markets and I always put my own artistic interpretation and style into each piece so as to not mislead the market into thinking what I create is official.

I have worked with some of the largest studios in the industry including: Disney, Universal, Warner Bros and Sanrio so they are aware of me and my art. I always keep my work respectful of the original character as what I create always comes from a place of love, as I do really love the cartoons I take inspiration from, and hopefully when seeing my art, it might spark the interest of the audience to actively go and search for those older shows or cartoons and grow some interest in them.”

@Thumbs is a big believer in giving back to the community and wants to show his appreciated for the growing support since entering the NFT space by running the following:

Rare NFT Raffle - This will be an exclusive raffle held for holders of a Thumbs NFT (from any of his collections) which gives them a chance too win 3 x 1/1 rare Thumbs NFT. The lucky winners will also receive a 1/1 matching exclusive signed print. Please note that each Thumbs NFT you hold will count as an entry.
Multiple NFT holders Airdrop - All holders of x3 or more Thumbs NFTs (from any Thumbs collection) will receive a Rare NFT airdrop.
Rare NFT Raffle #2 - This will be an exclusive raffle held for holders of a Thumbs NFT (from any of his collections) which gives them a chance too win 3 x 1/1 rare Thumbs NFT. The lucky winners will also receive a 1/1 matching exclusive signed print. Please note that each Thumbs NFT you hold will count as an entry.

Yes, @Thumbs is in a number of discussions for potential partnerships with both artists/teams outside the NFT space as well as some of the biggest projects in the NFT space right now. Watch this space! One collaboration that has officially been announced is with Enox’s Rare Bears - one of the most hyped projects that launched in March.

@Thumbs has a large physical following and since entering the NFT space he’s made it one his top priorities to join the two communities together. By collecting a Thumbs NFT, you will become a member of the Thumbs Club and your membership card is represented by the Thumbs NFTs you hold.

The more you hold, the more access you have to some pretty cool utilities/add ons like:
  • Early access to merch drops
  • Early Whitelisting for future drops
  • Super rare NFTs airdropped for holders with 3+ Thumbs NFTs
  • Raffles for NFT holders (each NFT you hold counts as an entry)
  • Access and tickets to physical events and shows
  • Invites to physical meetups
  • Discounts on Thumbs and other brands websites
  • Access to NFT collab

We’re currently working at a full capacity, but please do file a ticket if you’re interested in joining and we will log it. If a spot becomes available we will be in touch to find out more about you. A word of advise is to make sure you’re engaging with the community as we would only consider those that really support this project.

So, let’s begin with breaking down the collections you can expect to see from @Thumbs this year, which can also be found on his Roadmap in 》⚡・official-links
