This first series of Non-Fungible Token (NFT) collectibles will be a collection titled "Homies in Dreamland." The 10,420 unique NFT art pieces come from actors Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong, through Easy Partners, with art by Jermaine Rogers.
“I'm just learning as I go, but I like it, I like the spirit of the NFT community, everyone is so involved and into the NFT community," says Marin.
"NFTs are one-of-a-kind like a Picasso signature with a barcode (blockchain),” says Chong. “Imagine if all of those old masters were to wake up today? Van Gogh would be like WTF?”
Cheech & Chong will be rewarding holders with unique utilities; purchasers of the “Homies in Dreamland” NFT can be randomly selected for real life perks, including video calls and personalized messages from the duo, autographed limited editions and more. Plans for IRL (In Real Life) events are to be scheduled later this year. Collectors will also be eligible to receive over eight "air dropped" art pieces throughout 2022, free to the “Homies in Dreamland” NFT token holder. Posters designed by Billy Perkins will feature original Cheech & Chong artwork and will range in rarity. Creative director Jermaine Rogers has gained notoriety working with some of the world's most popular bands and has found success in NFTs with sold-out projects on OpenSea and the collectible platform VeVe.
The NFT collection will also feature 1-of-1 pieces created by over a dozen handpicked guest artists that will be placed randomly throughout the collection.
