Frank Friends - Series 1 and 2, #1-100
A selection of Frank Friends Series 1 and Series 2: #27 Glow, #30 Pirate, #65 Mermaid, #66 Safari
Frank Friends represent all of us. Over a span of a year I created Series 1 and 2 of Frank Friends, a collection of 100 different Frank Ape personas inspired by real people and some of my favorite fictional characters.
I hope they make you smile and serve as an optimistic reminder we are all in this together.
When I first created Frank in 2011 one of the first things I did was create a collection of drawings with Frank in various outfits and as various iconic figures. Something about Frank being able to transform into anyone was fun and exhilarating.
Frank Friend token holders will continue to receive special airdrops and exclusive access in the future.
Frank Ape on Async Art
Dynamic artworks that change based on time or controlled by the collectors.
It Takes A Village has three layers that collectors can change to alter the image. Explore the customizable artwork here.
It Takes A Village is a homage to the neighborhood, an integral facet of daily life that is often overlooked. Neighborhoods consist of all types of characters that help bring it to life. Community is the fabric that unites us all. Celebrate each other and be a positive member of your neighborhood. Say hello, offer to lend a helping hand, talk to the animals, and keep an eye out for aliens. As the collector of this work of art you can customize the piece by controlling the amount of Franks, animals, and six different times of the day. How you compose the different states of each layer helps tell a story of a moment in time in the neighborhood.
We live in a world that is constantly shifting every second. Let's take a minute to celebrate the humanity that bonds all of us. Each Frank has it's own unique story, self-expression, and energy. Each day we cross paths, form new connections, and try to leave our positive mark on the world. Frank is an extension of everyone. Helping others helps everyone. Let's be Frank.
With Exquisite Frank you and the other layer owners collaborate by changing each section of Frank. The collectors are forever linked in a never ending game of exquisite corpse. With this exquisite corpse, because it is digital, you can even change the background and foreground separately in two different layers, mixing the elements of each to create an entirely unique landscape.
Perhaps my favorite collection are these infinitely looping Frank classics.

"Make Your Mark" - 27 second animation, 2022
Every day is a new opportunity to create your own mark and be yourself. It’s not how long your name stays on the wall for everyone to see, but it’s the joy of self-expression. Find something you love and do it with kindness. For some it’s a spray can, for others it’s a clean wall. Embrace the challenge and have fun.
Frank and The Buffer have an unspoken dialogue back and forth in this infinitely looping story. Creation and destruction are woven together in a metaphor of flux, balance, and life.
