I am about to list 12 unique lotus tiger digital artworks to help raise funds for two important charities: The Samaritans and Papyrus UK. Each lotus tiger piece was digitally hand-coloured by me ie they are not generative AI artworks. Once all the pieces have sold I will donate 50% of the profits directly to the above two charities and update this page with full details when completed.
All of the NFTs contain unlockable content (a discount code off Meerkatsu apparel). Plus two of the artworks: Lotus Tiger 1 and Lotus Tiger 12 I consider extra special and include extra unlockable content (a signed art print and a much larger discount code). No1 is special because it is the OG design – the very first tiger Lotus artwork that I created. No12 is special because it is the only animated gif in the collection.
1. How do I purchase an NFT on Opensea?
This collection is on the Polygon Etherium blockchain. It is a so-called Layer-2 blockchain which involves much lower gas fees. For full detail on how to buy an NFT on the Polygon blockchain, see this well-explained page:
Be aware, there are still fees involved – called bridge fees which connect the two blockchains together.
2. What do I get when I buy one?
You’ll be the sole and undisputed token owner of a 1500×1500 pixel sized Meerkatsu tiger artwork on the Polygon Etherium blockchain (Lotus Tiger No12 is 960×960). The NFTs also include exclusive unlockable content: a discount code off Meerkatsu apparel – plus for two of the NFTs includes a personally signed 30x40cm art print as well as a much higher discount code. Unlockable content is only applicable to the first buyer of each NFT.
3. Can I sell it on?
Yes, NFTs can be re-listed on Opensea, sold to a new owner, or kept for posterity. As part of minting the NFT I have set the creator royalties at 10% for subsequent sales.
4. Can I use the image for my brand or product?
The copyright of all the artworks remains with me but buying this NFT entitles you to reproduce it for any non-commercial or personal use.
5. Will you be offering more NFTs?
Yes. I have an exciting continuous project growing my Learn2Ape collection over on Solsea (which uses the Solana blockchain). I will also explore other marketplaces and blockchains in this fast moving world.
6. How an I keep in touch with your NFT work?
Join our Telegram group chat! We can answer any questions and also you’ll see sneak previews and get advance notice on new drops.
7. I love the tiger but I don’t want to buy an NFT, how can I get a T-shirt of it?
Good news, we released a t-shirt and hoodie of this design and you can buy it here: https://grapplersforlife.com/product-category/meerkatsu/
All profits from tee sales will also be donated to the above same charities.
