About this collection

ERC 721

CLOUDMACHINE is an art focused collection handcrafted by Dave Van Patten. We are a small group of friends and family that are headquartered in Long Beach, California. Our shared passion for nostalgia, music and all things odd, has not only allowed us to introduce a carefully crafted genesis collection but also hand picked physical offerings available to our holders.

Our primary goal is to create various ways for collectors to bridge the gap between the physical and the digital. Given our core belief of connecting Web3 culture to IRL events we have partnered with CAMEO PASS as our launch partner and development team. CAMEO PASS’s primary collection features original artwork by Burnt Toast, Vinnie Hager, and Luke McGarry. Besides bringing the utility of various IRL events for their holders, CAMEO PASS released Daydreamers for their recent successful release, as well as Luke Mcgarry's art focused Genesis collection.

Welcome to the CLOUDMACHINE

Art is the mode of communication for us. Through that, our goal is to use art to connect the physical and digital worlds. Clouds represent a creative space for us to thrive, while the machine embodies our work ethic, heart and soul of creating these pieces we can all love and connect with. Welcome to the CLOUDMACHINE.

Meet Dave Van Patten

Dave Van Patten is a Long Beach based illustrator and muralist best known for his colorful imagery, playful surrealism and humorous tone. The bulk of his inspiration is pulled from dark humor comics, 1960’s surrealism, psychedelic garage rock albums, and modern societal absurdity.

About Us

CLOUDMACHINE is a handcrafted collection of pieces all of which were made with human touch, love and attention to detail. The 200+ characters and 150+ backgrounds were drawn by hand, scanned then colored and embellished digitally. The collection is non-generative, and all 4,444 images were thoughtfully chosen by founder/creator Dave Van Patten. Although some elements are repeated with various characters, all attributes are hand assembled to make every character uniquely different. As a fan of indie comics, cult classic films, retro sci-fi art, nostalgia and music culture, Dave has created a mini universe of strange, compelling, humorous, and imaginative characters and backgrounds that reflect these influences. We hope that every image is a conversation piece. Along with ownership of the NFT, we are excited to see the accompanying physical prints adorn the walls of our collectors.
