WITH THESE ECO-FRIENDLY, WOODEN PINS, YOU CAN SAY "NO TO NFTS," SUPPORT ARTISTS, & HELP THE ENVIRONMENT!
Are you sick and tired of NFTs? Does the concept of NFTs hurt your brain? Are you upset that NFTs are bad for artists AND the environment? ME TOO!!! That's why I decided to create these ANTI-NFT "FUNGIBLE TOKEN" PINS.
One day, I thought to myself, if NFT stands for "non-fungible token," then what would a "fungible token" be? That made me think of wooden nickels or wooden tokens. And, in turn, that made me think of wooden pins because who doesn't love to wear a pin with an important message on it? I mean, a pin is a fun, little piece of fashion that helps you broadcast your opinions to the world without even having to Tweet.
HOW DO THESE ANTI-NFT "FUNGIBLE TOKEN" PINS HELP SUPPORT ARTISTS?
1) Any profit I make on these ANTI-NFT "FUNGIBLE TOKEN" PINS, I will reinvest at least 10% into MINI ARTIST GRANTS (more details to come). SO THE MORE PINS YOU BUY, THE MORE FUNDS WILL GO TO ARTSTS!
Our MINI ARTIST GRANTS will be open to artists of all disciplines (including illustrators, painters, writers, filmmakers, comic book creators, zine makers, and beyond). We will only award grants to artists who are ANTI-NFTs. Eligible artists can be at any point in their career. We hope to give grants to artists working on a specific project (i.e. a webcomic, a new zine, a series of illustrations, a short film, etc.).
- Submissions will open once the preorder period has concluded.
- All artists who receive our mini grant will be featured on this website.
2) I am an artist. So if you buy this pin, you are helping me - an artist.
My name is G. E. Gallas. As some of you may know, I am a writer-illustrator as well as a chocolate maker! As a writer-illustrator, I am best known for my graphic novels: The Poet and the Flea about the 18th-century English poet-painter William Blake, and The Plague and Doctor Caim about a 17th-century plague doctor (published by Cast Iron Books). As a chocolate maker, I am the owner of Open Book Chocolates, a small business that specializes in handmade, bean-to-bar chocolate bars with literary-inspired flavors.
HOW DOES THIS ANTI-NFT "FUNGIBLE TOKEN" PIN HELP THE ENVIRONMENT?
We're teaming up with Wooden Pin to produce our ANTI-NFT "FUNGIBLE TOKEN" PINS. As you already know, NFTs are bad for the environment. Wooden Pin produces high quality, handmade, wooden products that are eco-friendly and made in the USA.
All of Wooden Pin's products use wood sourced from sustainable forests in the USA, and use only non-toxic glues and materials during production. Every order is laser engraved and assembled by hand, with care, in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Through Wooden Pin's partnership with One Tree Planted, 2% of every Wooden Pin order helps replenish forests throughout the world. Wooden Pin is proud to have helped plant over 2,600 trees in 2019. And, through our ANTI-NFT "FUNGIBLE TOKEN" PINS, we hope to help Wooden Pin and One Tree Planted plant even more trees.
(Plus these wooden pins smell excellent!)
