nft NFT News
    • Cartoonist Joan Cornellà has launched “MOAR”, his first-ever NFT collection.
    • MOAR is in collaboration with digital and physical asset curated platform FWENCLUB.
    • Aside from the NFTs, a mini-game will be launched for community engagement.

Joan Cornellà, a Spanish artist, known for his cheerful palette yet dark humorous comic strips, has launched his first-ever NFT project this April in collaboration with digital and physical asset curated platform FWENCLUB.

Dubbed “MOAR”, Cornellà’s collection features 5,555 unique, hand-drawn NFTs, including 50 “legendary artworks” based on the artist’s iconic male and female drawings with over 180 unique attributes.

The collection will revolve around a mansion in the metaverse called MOAR, wherein 5,555 “creatures with their souls minted with the ERC721 blockchain as NFTs”.

74% of the total supply will be offered to the public in the Dutch auction, while the 5% will be kept by Cornellà and FWENCLUB. Meanwhile, a whitelist consisting of the FWENCLUB Discord community, Hanai’s NFT holders, NFT communities, and social boosters will get the remaining 21%.

At the time of writing, MOAR also appears on OpenSea with a floor price of 0.94 ETH. The “Legendary” MOAR #1, the collection’s “most valuable and sought-after” profile picture NFT, currently has a top bid of 3.4 ETH or over $10,800 in the NFT marketplace.

Aside from the digital assets, holders will earn airdropped raffle tickets for a chance to win a 3D avatar in the metaverse, access to Cornellà’s physical and virtual exhibition, and exclusive purchasing rights to the artist’s physical and digital art – consisting of toys, sculptures, paintings, and other digital assets.

The MOAR NFT drop is just the tip of what’s to come according to the FWENCLUB website. Ahead of the “grand opening” of the MOAR metaverse slated in November 2022, a mini-game will be launched and special rewards will be doled out to engage the community in May and June, respectively.

“By trying different things, I can express myself through my works in different mediums. It’s always good to try new things and here comes my first-ever NFT collection. I believe working with FWENCLUB can bring new interesting creations.”

Joan Cornellà is notorious for his unsettling and surreal dark humor artworks shared on Web2 social media. Regardless, the cartoonist has gained international recognition for his satirical social commentary illustrations, exhibiting his work in various art epicenters such as New York and Hong Kong.
