Joining MakersPlace is, for me, about getting my art out there for those who like it, who want to own tokenized digital copies of the works without the hassle of converting their money to Ethereum first.
For the last few months, I've gone from "I don't have an artistic bone in my body" to "Hey... with some technological assistance I can actually make some awesome work !", and it has mostly been through the use of the Deep Style A.I. (or as I like to call it Art.I. ) algorithm.
I first started experimenting with selling my work on SuperRare ( superrare.co/pbock ), and it had some modest success.
Then, An art afficionado named VK-Crypto began buying up some of my works for 0.5 to 1 Eth, which made me pretty wild, and encrouaged me to experiment more, cementing my interest in creating art.
(I, of course, immediately spend the first Eth on tickets to a silver Raffle by the SteemitSilverGold community).
I plan on continuing to experiment with selling art online, using not just the online version of Deep Style (deepdreamgenerator.com/user/pbock for those interested) but also using TensorFlow and Torch to experiment with creating my own AI generative/procedural art algorithms.
I hope you enjoy my work, and remember.
Cryptoart is a store of value too ;)
