If you’ve ever found it difficult to think of a way to pay tribute to someone without it feeling too superficial, or if you just want to show some love and support for someone special, then this is the right thing to do. George was a brilliant artist, who was kind and fun-loving, even though he suffered from severe epilepsy for much of his life. He had over 1,000 seizures a day for almost his entire life, and his condition made it nearly impossible for him to work or leave his home. But even though he left a lasting impression on the people around him, his tragic and life-changing illness has made him almost invisible to the rest of the world.

The George Floyd project
On May 2nd, 2017, George died of a heart attack at the age of 49. Almost exactly one year later, on May 2nd, 2018, his family and friends, who had been working on a project to create digital art works inspired by his work, celebrated his life by releasing the first of the George Floyd NFTs to the public.
The project was started by his friend and fellow artist Kristy DeLusiaux, a former colleague at the Gutenburg Academy of Fine Arts in Toronto, who wanted to create a way to honour her late friend. The first George Floyd NFT, entitled “Untitled (SpongeBob SquarePants)”, features the famous SpongeBob SquarePants character, drawn in the style of George’s work.
Why are NFTs such a good way to remember someone?
At his best, George was a master of the digital arts medium. He had been an artist all his life and worked as a commercial illustrator and graphic designer before his health took a turn for the worse. But while most people can remember where they were when they first encountered a certain work of art, it’s much harder for us to retain the details and nuances of certain paintings or drawings, or even specific media, such as the smell of a certain color or the sound of a certain note. That’s why digital art, which can be easily shared and downloaded, is such a great way to remember someone. You can leave a lasting impression on as many people as you want, without having to worry about hurting their feelings or breaking the law.
How to help out with the George Floyd project
If you’ve got any spare cash or are a professional artist, you can help out with the George Floyd project by donating original works of art, brushes and other materials. You can also share your works of art and donate to the cause by posting a link to the project on social media or by emailing the organizer with the details. If you’re not a professional artist or don’t have any extra money to throw away, there is a growing community of professional and amateur artists who are willing to donate their time, free of charge, to help spread the word and raise funds for the George Floyd project. A survey will soon be available on the Kickstarter website to help people find the right group of artists for them.

A message from the creator of the George Floyd digital art NFTs
It’s been such a pleasure to work on the George Floyd project with everyone, and we’ve had such a great time creating these pieces! You’ve helped us share my work and bring George to life in a way that I’ve never felt before. But now it’s time to move on, and the best way to do that is by sharing the love and helping us to continue his legacy. Help spread the word and share your amazing works of art with the world. We’re still a long way from being finished, and there’s still so much more to be done. If you’ve got the resources, consider donating money or creating a work of art in his honour. If you want to, you can also share and like the project on social media and on your blog.

To all of you who have helped us get to this point, you’ve given us so much, and we’ll never be able to repay you in full. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you so much!
