As we embark on a new year, I’m setting some ambitious art goals for myself in 2024. One of my main objectives is to finally dip my toe into the world of NFTs (non-fungible tokens) and make my first NFT sale. The NFT space exploded in popularity in 2021 and 2022, and I don’t want to miss out on being part of this unique intersection of technology and art any longer.

I have several ideas for potential NFT drops that I could create and sell. As a photographer, I could take some of my best landscape and nature photos, add unique digital enhancements, and

The great thing about NFTs is that the possibilities are endless – it’s a digital canvas where I can turn almost any creation into a sellable digital asset.

My goal is to dedicate time each week to building my NFT portfolio and getting my work onto NFT marketplaces like OpenSea. I’ll need to research the tech side of minting and listing NFTs, plus the legal and financial considerations. I may start small, testing the waters with lower-priced works, but ideally, I’ll build up to creating and auctioning off some premium, high-value NFT pieces in the later part of the year. Selling even one high-ticket NFT could be a game changer and allow me to invest in some new art technology I have my eye on.

Beyond NFTs, I’m striving this year to purchase an advanced digital art scanner and printer that will take my creative work to new levels. I’ve been blown away by technology like the SwissQ Kudu Printer that can scan real artwork or objects and reproduce digital prints that look like oil paintings. Erin Hanson uses a high-end scanner like this to give her photography pieces the lush, textured look of oil paintings. Not only are the results beautiful, but the technology allows artists to preserve and reproduce their work at a massive scale not possible with traditional painting.

The initial investment in one of these professional scanners is steep – $150,000 or more for a device like the Oryx Scanner. But I’m viewing it as acquiring a crucial piece of studio equipment that will pay creative dividends and open up new professional opportunities for many years to come. My roadmap is to steadily ramp up my NFT sales in 2024 until I can afford to bring one of these innovative scanners into my own studio. I have the perfect space for it, and the chance to essentially “paint” with my photography using this tech is hugely inspiring to me.

Between diving into NFTs and making big plans for upgrading my creative toolkit, I feel invigorated by the possibilities that lie ahead in 2024. It’s going to be a year of hard work, calculated risks, and embracing new technologies that can empower me as an artist. I believe if I stay focused and keep my entrepreneurial spirit, I can make my NFT and art tech dreams into realities over the next 12 months. The journey starts today – it’s time to get out there and turn my goals into achievements!
