Prisoner of the Mind NFT art collection will be updated frequently so come back soo.


PRISONER OF THE MIND is a neo-noir thriller 16 years in the making. The story is set in the near future of New York, the unforgiving city. On the outside the city looks a little different. Buildings are taller, the sky is a little darker, technology is more advanced and machines have replaced some human workers. Nevertheless, people are the same inside, hungry, greedy, and deceitful.

Prisoner of the Mind graphic novel has over 300 pages in Volume 1, and is also sold as a serialized comic in 5 issues. It is written and illustrated by Linder over a sixteen year period.

Below are a series of one of a kind NFT art that was created using original hand made drawings from the graphic novel, inked, and animated. Some of this artwork was created for the graphic novel animated trailer. The unlockable content is a digital copy of the first issue of Prisoner of the Mind.

Quantum Enigma is a much larger creative project than what you see here. It is the culmination of nine years of work. Check out the award winning teaser trailer above that was created for this project.

A graphic novel will be published next year featuring a complete story and animation. 



The scope of work on this project is enormous, which features working props, robotics, costumes and hundreds of drawings and digital artworks and a short film. 


To Learn More About This Project Click on the Links Below

Storyboards: Here we will continue to bring storyboard thumbnails sketches and changes for the live action trailer.


Concept Art: A lot of interesting art leading up to the finished ideas. Multiple changes are made frequently to work out problems and detail of the props and effects that we are trying to create. We will continue to drop new art here all the time.


Props, Animatronics and Practical Effects: This is the good stuff that takes so long to make. After we sketch it all down, it is s trial and error process using various materials to create a practical effect and prop. We'll try to update this area as much as possible.


Behind the Scenes: This is some behind the scenes shots from production of the trailer and more.


Film Festivals: During this process we are submitting our teaser and soon to be trailer to various film festivals which are responding very well to our work.


If you've waited this long, it will be worth it. Check back in for more details soon.

NONAGON: Nine sides of life, nine sides of our past, present and future meet in the world’s first Crypto Noir art series and story ever.

Linder’s latest artwork is digital meets handmade. Starting with hand painted paper, he draws in pen and ink, and white charcoal. Each piece is scanned at a stunning 8k resolution and then 20 to 50 digital layers are added. The digital layers are printed on transparency and re-applied to the handmade drawing.

It is a one of a kind series inspired by film noir and pulp fiction novels that explores the mystery of number 9, with 27 mixed media artworks that tell the first Crypto-Noir story ever. Nonagon will be released as 9 pages of artwork in three separate NFT drops.

The original handmade artwork be auctioned soon. 

All NFT's are available to purchase here. 


In addition to that, there is a collected graphic novel in the works that will be released later this year with the complete story of Nonagon.

It was a hot spring night in New York with a little rain in the air. Nona was enjoying a great time at her friend Stacey’s party with plenty of drinks, and lots of old friends. The only downside was that her loser boyfriend wouldn’t take no for an answer.

She pleaded with him earlier to stay home and let her enjoy her friend’s birthday. But it didn’t help, Derek showed up anyway. What made things worse is that after a few shots, he started hitting on her friends too. Nona had enough, after she saw his touchy feely hands on her friends, she left the party.

Nona waited for an Uber but it was late so she called her friend Meagan to meet for a drink while she waited. She noticed a strange man in a hat following her, but she couldn’t get a good look at him after he slipped into an alley. The whole thing creeped her out so she grabbed the first taxi she could find and headed for the bar to meet her friend.

It was Saturday night and there were more people than usual out on the streets of the city. New York felt alive again, even though so many places she used to go were boarded up and gone. A light rain started and she realized that she didn’t have an umbrella or a coat with her. She would just have to wing it.


Reflection

She thought how weird it was to see so many people without masks now that the mandate was finally lifted. Things almost felt normal again to her, until her boyfriend kept texting her which interrupted the moment. She was going to ignore him anyway and just hang with friends that she has missed over the past year.

Nona tipped the cabbie and got out of the car only to catch a glimpse of the same stranger with a hat that followed her out of Stacey’s party. She tried to keep her eyes on him to see where he went, but he slipped into the shadows again. 

Now that is strange, how could he know where she was going? How could he have gotten there before her she thought? Maybe she just had too much to drink at the party she continued.

After stepping out of the car, she noticed coins lying on the ground in front of her and something else that sparkled.

Quickly, she turning around to see if anyone near her dropped their wallet or purse or something, but no one was there. Someone definitely lost their ring and a pocket full of change right where her cab stopped to let her out. 

Maybe it’s the place all cabs stop in this area and the one before her lost it? Either way, she couldn’t just leave it there. Maybe she could find an inscription on it or something to return it to its rightful owner she thought.

Wearing her tight fitting little black dress and heels, Nona couldn’t exactly kneel down to pick it up, so she tried to reach down without looking awkward. It was an odd shaped ring, one with many different sides. 

As she got closer to it, the ring began to give off a kind of bluish glow as if it was reacting to her, that seemed very unusual she thought, but she continued to question herself, rationalizing it as maybe just reflections off of the wet street from the rain.

When she picked it up, the ring slipped onto her finger and it lit up instantly. It felt extraordinarily light for a ring this size she mused. Numbers started appearing around it like some kind of a projection. 

Now, she thought it was some type of a gag or she was being filmed for a typical New York City street promotion.


Odyssey

Nona realized the numbers stayed on 1942, suddenly she felt very warm and the sky went dim, then black.

The next 9 in this series will be released in a few weeks, so check back soon.
