NFT Crash Course

January 27 @ 6:00 PM 8:00 PM

NFTs for Photographers with David Ariew and Chelsea Evenstar

Hello photography friends!  We are a husband and wife team of 3D artists, creating NFTs full time since February 2021. We are so excited to share our journey with NFTs with you, so you can decide if this is a path you’d like to embark upon! 

In this course, we will teach you the basics of getting started with NFTs, the different platforms where you can sell your work, what we feel are the pros and cons of each platform, how to get started with creating and selling your own NFTs, and what to do to protect your crypto and NFT investments. We will also provide a list of collectors to follow and learn about, and some links to youtube videos to further your NFT education, and answer any of your burning questions! 

Every NFT artist joins the space with their own unique story, background, and artistic vision. We have found the NFT space to  be an incredible opportunity for all kinds of artists to create supplemental, or even a full time income doing what they love. This is the first time in the history of art that artists have been granted some real power to change the way artists are perceived by the world – we can finally drop “starving” from our titles, and be part of a growing movement that has already made a massive impact on so many lives, and the world of collecting fine art. 

We are excited to share our story and hopefully inspire some of you to begin your own journey into becoming an NFT artist. For us, it’s been the most fun and most rewarding year of our lives, both artistically and financially. 

Let’s go!!

About David Ariew:

David is a 3D artist and educator, known to the community as “Octane Jesus” thanks to his hair, and a comment that took off in one of his tutorials. He has worked with artists like Beeple, Deadmau5, Zedd, Katy Perry, Keith Urban, and Excision. David has several artistic styles that he loves developing, from energetic concert visuals that are tightly synced with the music, to creating overly ambitious, full CG short films, as well as abstract and mesmerizing animations. David is always looking to grow the NFT community and help up-and-coming artists gain traction in the space. There’s an absurd level of talent out there, but often that talent remains unknown by the community at large, so that’s something he’d like to help change. http://instagram.com/davidariew http://arievvisuals.com

About Chelsea Evenstar:

An author and an artist, Chelsea spends her days navigating the starry skies and celestial portals; she gathers constellations, fairies, and spells and infuses them into magical stories and stellar animated works. Chelsea is a successful artist and thought leader in the cryptocurrency space and is specifically known for her work in the rapidly emerging NFT art market. Evenstar’s work has been collected by various luminaries in the art world, and in October 2021 was presented by Paris Hilton at Sotheby’s London, where her AQUARIUS piece was sold at auction for $18,900 during the London Frieze Art Fair. Chelsea’s “Rise from the Abyss” NFT soared to the top three in the OVERCAME exhibition by Brandon Kang on grants.art. She also served as producer and character designer for 888’s The New World promo video. When Chelsea isn’t creating art or helping other artists thrive in the NFT space, she’s spinning out starry fiction, creating imaginary worlds or cuddling her kitties and her hubby. http://instagram.com/chelseaevenstar http://chelseaevenstar.com (website is actually not finished yet, on my to-do list!)
