Ode to Donuts
COMING SOON: DONUT ZOMBIES
The donut zombies are ready. I expect to launch around October 5th.
Algorand is a smaller chain with less people. I am an independent seller of NFTs. As a result, these will not be launched in a similar method to Ethereum launches.
1000 unique donut zombies will be minted

I am very much willing to experiment with art and try new things. I have dabbled in animation (plan to do more), pixelated art (Done with that), and computer generative art (More coming soon). I used to paint and draw and took art classes in college. I changed majors from Art and Graphic design and became a business analyst and project manager for RPA projects. I am PMP and PMI-ACP certified, as well as a Certified Scrum Master.
Why Donuts? I don't know. It really all started with the Ode to Donuts project and hasn't stopped yet.
This website isn't always kept up to date, but you can view most of my NFTs here: Rand Gallery NFT List
What is the Ode to Donuts Project?
The Ode to Donuts, at its core, is an NFT art project released on the Algorand blockchain and meant to honor the glory that is the donut. I am not an artist by trade (although I wanted to be, and even started school 20 years ago studying art), but I felt the need to try out NFTs and as a result, this project was born.
There are several reasons why I finally decided to create the Ode to Donuts project. First and foremost - I really like donuts. They are great. Seriously, they are the perfect junk food. They are fatty and hopefully, a bit soft with grease. They have lots of sugar, come in a variety of flavors, and can be eaten on the run while in a hurry.
But this extends beyond an inanimate food object.
Ode to Donuts is about the things we take too seriously that we probably shouldn't. The "Donut" becomes the religious icon that can only be worshipped. Any words spoken against the "Donut" becomes heresy. We cannot dare to question that which we worship, even when presented with the facts that perhaps our "Donut" is not so good for us.

The Ode to Donuts:
What are Donutars?
Donutars live in a donut world. There is a bakery on every corner and a coffee shop adjacent to that. They live like people. They have jobs and unique personalities.
Donutars are donut avatars released on the Algorand chain.
Avatar NFTs that celebrate the diversity of donuts everywhere.
There will be 100 different ones made initially. 1 will be made of each. They will be released in small batches on Algorand beginning August 12th.

What are Pixelnuts?
Pixel art is fairly popular in the NFT community. Algorand is no different. Yieldings (flamingo pixel art associated with the Yieldly token) have come to dominate this space. Yieldly themselves now offers NFT staking to give away Yieldings and the price of their token tripled in a few days. There may or may not be a correlation to the NFT staking as Bitcoin also rose during this time. In Crypto, where Bitcoin goes, so goes the market.
It really started off as a joke for me. My Reddit post announcing the arrival of the 'Pixelnuts' talked about how I was feeling left out of the pixel art game. I wanted to attract people to the Ode to Donuts store on Rand Gallery, and selling pixel art cheaply seemed like a good idea. I sold them for an Algo a piece and there were a total of 41.
There were a total of 41 Pixelnuts released in the first wave. Each one minted once.
There were a total of 45 Pixelnuts and 20 Pixelbishis released in the R2 release.
My attempt at a bootleg: Donutlings
I asked permission first, but there have been issues with people mimicking the work of well-selling artists. The creator of Yieldlings has had several people try to knock off his work. So I asked if I could knock-off his work and charge an absurdly high price. Two donutlings were born from that. As of right now, the purple one sold for 100 Algos (I gave half to the Yielding creator) and the other golden Donutling was given to the Ode To Donuts Telegram group as a giveaway.
The Thundernuts (Pixelnuts Release 3)
The Pixelbishi Shitboxes (Pixelnuts Release 4)
These were done under the theme of a used car salesman peddling junk vehicles
What are Donut Dunkers?
A personal experiment to see if I could make donuts with random features. I use Python and had the code draw random donut features. Only 50 were made. They aren't very good, but it was interesting.
What are Donut Zombies?
Donut zombies - see below for samples:
They have 10 different criteria with 70 + optional traits to mix and match.
With various accessories and 8 possible genders:
And various weapons that include lightsabers, a toilet plunger, and a magician
