“These are highly pedigree projects and the opportunities will always be there no matter what, and that’s what we’re looking forward to here […] We think it’s a great time. really out of desire for something high fidelity with this kind of iconic talent. This is about IP, art and branding, and makes Hopkins both an artist and a brand that reaches out to the world. “

On Tuesday, 1,000 unique images will be auctioned off, and 39 autographed Hopkins books will be randomly distributed to buyers with insight into his works and poems. Additionally, 5 buyers will be selected to join a Discord video call with the actor.
