LONDON, NOVEMBER 2ND: Sean Webster is a celebrated UK artist who has risen to prominence through his iconic street art murals in his hometown of Liverpool – courting widespread acclaim and commissions from Robbie Williams, Sean Lennon, Newton Faulkner, Brian Ray, and Phil X of Bon Jovi. Today, the rising-star has announced a landmark NFT project which will make metaverse history by becoming the first to ban ‘optional royalties’ in a bid to protect the rights of fellow artists and creators. Titled ‘The Pals Universe’, Sean will be unveiling 4,444 totally unique hand drawn NFTs in his signature ‘doodle’ style which will be available on 11th November. These will be 100% mint free1 – giving collectors the chance to support Sean’s movement, and to own a rare and coveted piece of art history. Intended to spark joy and remind us of the greatest of human endeavours (art) in a bleak, grey, political, and economic period of uncertainty, the collection will consist of ‘Pals’ and ‘Foes’ – a series of hand drawn characters, with added generative traits to highlight their unique personality, occupation, ‘superpower’, and style. ‘Pals’ are upbeat, happy little fellas, that are intended to reflect the raw creativity bouncing around inside all of us, whilst the ‘Foes’ are born of Sean’s fears, self-doubt and uncertainty. The collection will also feature 100 super rare collectable NFTs. These include 10 ‘Super Rare Crazy Pals’, 20 ‘Rare Wild Pals’, 20 ‘Rare Wild Foes’, and 50 ‘Rare Icon Pals’ which are inspired by celebrities and other notable NFT projects.
