Before starting, remember you can join the inner community, access token-gated content, participate in monthly surprises, and support my content by getting an NFT subscription in my HyperSub.

πŸ’Ž Gem of the day

HEX by Andreas Gysin

Andreas Gysin, also known as ertdfgcvb, is a generative artist specializing in procedural graphic design for screens and installations. His work embraces purely digital tools.

  • HEX is a rare Base mint, available for less than $3.

    Hexagon study: an (approximated) hexagon SDF on a character grid that has an aspect ratio of about 1/2.

    The renderer uses default system fonts (monospace or some variants), the appearance may vary depending on the configuration and OS.
    It’s possible to control the CSS β€œfont-family” property via URL parameter, along with some layout settings (columns, rows, colors, font size, etc.). Explore the html source for some insights.

🎁 Airdrop Alert

A Purple Passage | Abridged by Tim Maxwell

Yesterday, I sent the first airdrop to onchain subscribers.

I couldn't be more excited about this collaboration with Tim Maxwell, a New York-based artist who creates outstanding ink-on-paper art inspired by deep concepts. Tim started incorporating digital alterations recently and is sharing his art via /aligned.

Exactly two years ago, Tim spoke about his art in the newsletter. Read it here.

πŸ“– Interesting Content

Isaac Newton and the perils of the financial South Sea

While recording a podcast episode (which will be out soon), the guest shared an interesting story on how Isaac Newton made some very bad investments back in the 1700s. The topic emerged while discussing hyperfinalization and how $degen and crypto investment frenzy isn't anything new... it has been happening for centuries.

πŸ”¨ Basement Builders
