Making $46K In 6 Weeks Selling NFTs



Blake Jamieson, 36, is a portrait pop and NFT artist based in Brooklyn, NY. In 2020, he worked with Topps, redesigning 20 iconic baseball cards for their Project 2020 campaign. In 2021, Jamieson made $46,000 in 6 weeks selling his art as NFTs and doesn’t show any signs of slowing down.

The market for NFTs, or nonfungible tokens, has exploded this year – and many creators have profited off of the hype.

Among them is Brooklyn artist Blake Jamieson, who has made over $46,000 within roughly six weeks, between the first day of February through to mid March, selling NFTs of his artwork on platforms like SuperRare and OpenSea.

“I firmly believe that I will be a millionaire in like eight weeks, just because I see the potential of the NFT stuff,” Jamieson says. “I have a really big rolodex of pro-athlete clients and they’re like beating down my door to do this stuff.”

NFTs are unique digital assets, like jpegs and video clips, that are represented by code recorded on the blockchain, a decentralized digital ledger. Each NFT can be bought and sold, just like physical assets, but the blockchain allows for ownership and validity of each to be tracked.

Jamieson, a successful artist known for his vibrant paintings who has a clientele of professional athletes, including former NFL running back CJ Anderson, learned about NFTs from his friend, NFT artist and former MLB player Micah Johnson.

    I hate that stories like these only affirm that you have to be born rich and very well-off in order to become/stay rich and well-off. Not so humble beginnings deserve a pat on the back????

    Relieve yourself from the hassle of scripting NFT descriptions for your NFTs, or even writing any word on your website… you'll agree writing is hard.

    I can help communicate your ideas and desires easily for as low as the price of a coffee at Starbucks.

    You don't even need to commit if you don't like the copy … stop snoozing

    I have a question I can not find answer anywhere. I would like to take a photo of my original painting and turn it into a Digital Jpeg file and sell it as a NFT, but also I would like to sell the original physical painting in other platform separately for example like my website or Etsy. From this video I understand that I can do that, but I am not sure how to state that in my NFT sale description. Do I need to state that the Nft is a art made both with Acrylic paint and Digital edit and that they are two separate works of art basically. How should I state that to make it clear to the buyer???

    Please if anyone knows how this is done, let me know!

    Thank you

    Luck. Everything of it. He has good luck. I had to pay $3k month for my studio. I spend about $80k yearly and nothing has really took off I always felt like luck is a big part of success and it’s something you can’t control no matter how much money you have or how much effort you put into things. I’m not gonna give up because luck is bound to hit me one of these days.
