It looks like the artist behind the distinctive look of the successful TV show “The Adventures of Rick and Morty” may have a new way to reach his fans directly. Justin Roiland just sold a range of NFT-based artwork on Gemini’s CryptoArt.io platform for a little more than 1,300 ETH – or a bit over $1.5 million USD.
The artist sold a range of pieces on the platform, and this sale shows that the apparent rush into NFT art isn’t cooling down one bit. The artworks that Roiland presented were numerous, with many available in sets of 5, 10, or 20.
The most expensive piece was a one-off, entitled “The Smintons”, which sold for a little less than $300,000 USD at the time of sale (it was sold in ETH, so that amount will change as the markets churn).
The piece appears to be Roiland’s vision of the famous TV family – The Simpsons – but with a very “Roiland” take on their appearance.
