This project started as a thought experiment on how I might create some unique versions of my characteristic Lil' Reaper art in some automated way, without losing the integrity of my own style & vision. This thought experiment led me to hand-draw a modular set of art elements and write software code to combine these elements in unpredictable ways. I had so much fun developing the system, which can combine some combination of over a 100 different hand-drawn elements to produce QUADRILLIONS of images.
Some are being made available as physical prints through KickStarter. Others will be available as NFTs through OpenSea.
Both the above images are composed from the same building blocks. The variations, however, are introduced by my computer code on the fly - I cannot predict how any particular image will turn out!
In addition my algorithms introduce subtle (or not-so-subtle) color variations on the fly. For example, look closely at the phones in this image:
Note that some of the color changes in each image are very subtle. For example, look closely at the 'message' colors in the phones these 3 Lil' Reapers are holding:
NFTs will be made available in collections themed by what the Lil' Reaper is holding - e.g. the Teddy Collection, the Phone Collection, the Balloon Collection, etc. For NFTs, look for ArtByVikram on OpenSea.
