First Ever! Thank You!

A big thank-you to the Anonymous who picked up my "First Förtress Sticker" NFT over on Opensea.io

 

In a way this is like a "late refund" for my very first investment to get stickers done to hit the streets in 2001. It was a bit more hustle to get some offset stickers back in those days...

Literally i had to start collecting a bunch of designs from artist friends to set up a whole sticker-paper-panel to drop the price on the single sticker designs.

And i still running this sticker game 20 years later.

But not alone...

 

I just started to move to this new space.

NFT...?

Why?

Förty, why?

 

Whenever i do new things there are these voices...

"Why you're spraying these Teddy Troops flops now instead of classic Graffiti letters with arrows and bubble-background, Förty? you used to do sick styles and so cool monster characters!"...

"Because i love this new space, i am multi-discipline and i want to move... move new directions. move forward."

 

I also remember those voices saying a bit later:

"Why you're doing stickers/posters now, Förty? you used to do cool flops!"...

"Because i love this new space, i am multi-discipline and i want to move... move new directions. move forward."

 

And the same voices later on my first steps into the vinyl-/designer-toy space:

"Why you're doing these vinyl toys now, Förty? you used to do cool stickers!"...

"Because i love this new space, i am multi-discipline and i want to move... move new directions. move forward."

 

And now like another déjà vu over again:

"Why you're doing NFTs now, Förty? you used to do cool vinyl-toys!"...

"Because i love this new space, i am multi-discipline and i want to move... move new directions. move forward."

 

So... did i listen? ;-)

Did i keep standing still?

Did i move?

...

 

Thank you all for the strong support over the last 2(!) decades!

I will keep moving forward. I am promising this to those voices!

Feel free to keep following me on my travels and journeys.

 

This new space will be new fun together!*

And btw: it's not like "a totally new" space. Almost all of my work is created digitally and this is the tool & space where my things "come to life"!

 

Follow up to see the 10K NFT Teddy Troops start marching soon in Q1-2022!

 

Everything will happen in the Cardano blockchain space and this is the HQ:

(*sooner or later i will drop some more words & thoughts here about the NFT and meta space... why it is a "move to it" space. benefits for me as an artist... and for you as a fan/supporter/collector. one important thing right now to say is that it's time to give up some bad old habits -  like to create so much (digital) work for free - only to help building up Marc's Butterberg empire.. it's time to take back your own profitability and bring it to a decentralize space... and! there will be new vinyls, stickers & flops in 2022, too! promised!)
