James Zhang + Jon Radoff talk NFTs, Digital Collectibles, Games, Art, Blockchain, Frank Miller


James Zhang is a leader in NFT collectible artwork; his company, Concept Art House, recently worked with Frank Miller (Sin City, 300, Batman) to mint and sell a one-of-a-kind work of art on the blockchain for $840K. His company just raised $25M to expand their operation.  We discussed the recent funding, the creator economy, and the backdrop of NFTs and artwork.  We cover why people are collecting this art, discuss the critiques that claim it is a fad or scam, and dive into a discussion of why the digitization of art is a game-changer for artists of all kinds. James is an artist himself, who got his start as a concept artist and who built a successful production partner to countless games over the years.
