Each Redlion Gazette comes with an Artdrop: a directly commissioned NFT made exclusively available to the Gazette holders of that week. The aim is to deliver unparalleled artistic work from the best creators in web3.
Artists get their work highlighted + elegantly distributed. Collectors get pieces they’ll value: it’s a win-win. Peek at our vintage ArtDrops and you’ll see many huge names in the NFT space! We love our partners—nothing is better than watching their collections moon!
Are you buying a Gazette from secondary and unsure whether the previous owner has already claimed its ArtDrop token?
Week 8–14 | 2023
Come join our journey on the River Styx as we explore NFTs addressing Life, Death and the After. All ticket sales are final!
This used to be my playground
The third week of The Inevitable brings us a new ArtDrop by Junkyard. In his unapologetic style, Junkyard evokes the pain of life and what lies beyond – and hints that even the lord of the underworld does not enjoy his station.
Junkyard is a professional artist known for using his gritty and rubber hose cartoon style artwork to evoke discomfort. His anxiety-inducing exploration of controversial and dark subjects is often juxtaposed with smiling characters.
The second week of The Inevitable brings us Antipode by Unicode, which explores the duality of life and death. The piece depicts a female figure split in two, with one side flesh and the other skeletal, reflecting the idea of opposing forces.
Unicode is an artist that embodies the #StayGenuine ethos. As a core member of the Genuine Undead artist community, he is always there for his fellow GU holders – whether it’s a paid commission or a free background, Unicode gives. And he deserves so much.
The first week of The Inevitable brings us Deliverance by TΞNΞBRINI. The skull theme is certainly on brand for the DeathFam, but it melds with his more recent artwork, like the Burds. Deliverance reminds us that death is always lurking.
Steve Tenebrini aka TΞNΞBRINI thinks about death. A lot. As the artist and driving force behind the DeathWish 365 project, he thought about death and drew a 1/1 skull every single day for 365 days straight. And that was just the first year of the project
Week seven marks the finale of the pushin P curation. And we have the perfect curtain closing act. One that could also be seen as curtain opener… Such is the mystical reflective wonderism of THEPEPEKING by Baldo.
Baldo is a Venezuelan-born 3D Artist & Graphic Designer. Currently residing in Austria, Baldo spends his free time creating elite-tier surrealist/sci-fi 3D Art.
It’s the pepenultimate week of the Redlion pushin P curation, and this week, we have an ultimate lesson in PEPEHISTORY. Courtesy of the genius that is Whoisit, this week’s art drop is truly a journey through space and time.
Whoisit. I'm sure it's nothing. Yet, if you dig a little deeper... you might find that "Whoisit" is actually quite a wonderful (and rare) artist! Whoisit? It is Helen.
Welcoming you into the circus, in week five of pushin P, is CIRQUEDUPEPE. From The Puppetmaster herself, P E Sharpe, The Ringmaster of the web3 circus is born. Will you come into the tent and join us, anon? All frogs and lions welcome!
P E Sharpe@pesharpe
P E Sharpe (PE) is an artist with a unique and incredible style. PE is an Ontarian who grew up a stone's throw from the home of Cirque Du Soleil. PE is The Puppetmaster.
Floating gently in week four of the pushin P Redlion curation is ARISINGPEPE by express0. Depicting a young Pepe, sailing away to experience the story of life for himself, under the watchful eyes of an older, big brother Pepe.
Espress0 (real name Jonas Jude) is a structured thinker, visual artist & meme expressionist. Previously known as CertifiedPublicAccountant.eth, Jonas is a man of many projects, & a master of numbers too.
Strolling into week 3 of the pushin P curation is ONEPEPATATATIME. by the legendary fren, Nick. Depicting a pair of pepesneakers, making their way up metahill, past some recognizable cc0 assets from weeks gone by…
NicholasKGarvin (as you would find him on twitter) is as a lot of things… a thinker, writer, designer, speaker, visual artist, collaborator & fren… just to name a few. Nick runs his own blog & podcast, and he creates great memes too.
Coming in hot, in week 2 of the pushin P curated exhibition, we have THENFTMVPEPE by Viva La Vandal. In typical vandal style, this pepe has arrived to wreak havoc and claim his rightful meme lord crown.
Viva La Vandal@viva_la_vandal
Spencer (AKA Viva La Vandal) is an artist who we could say is very much established in the quote-unquote “real” world of art (and fashion!). Yet, he remains (relatively) unknown in web3. We can expect that to change… drastically… this year.
Lighting up the pushin P curated exhibition, in week 1, we have mrarwyn’s KRISSAWOOGABUSSI. Exemplifying his multi-disciplinary talents, Arwyn has created a deeply meaningful audiovisual NFT for Redlion.
Arwyn is a full-time, multi-disciplinary artist. His name means “very fair; very bright”, and I would suggest that that is a fair descriptor of this GENTLEMAN CHAD. He’s a self-proclaimed PEPE LOVER.
Public domain internet imagery including diagrams of computer parts, machine parts, network visualisations, screengrabs from computer games plus the artists own older work extruded into 3D space, stretched, rotated and processed to abstraction.
crashblossom is a crypto arsonist creating ruptured digital images using dynamic on-chain code, glitch processes and neural networks. Exploring our jagged relationship to the metaverse and the influence of decentralised network systems on humans.
There are infinite beings inside each one of us. Divine powers, souls, higher callings, call them anything you like. They help us, shape us, and mold us into creatures who will always be on a journey to inner paths through psychedelics and other remedies
I'm an Illustrator who is inclined towards complex art which shows an amalgamation of nature and psychedelia. My designs require a certain degree of attention and patience to consume it wholly.
