Famous actor Johnny Depp is set to release a collection of non-fungible tokens that feature his friends and heroes in the artwork he personally created. A collection of 11,111 non-fungible tokens called “Never Fear Truth” are set to launch. The NFTs feature portraits of friends and heroes created using artwork from Depp that was animated to create the digital collectibles.

Johnny Depp was quoted as saying:

“I’ve always used art to express my feelings and to reflect on those who matter most to me, like my family, friends, and people I admire. My paintings surround my life, but I kept them to myself and limited myself. No one should ever limit themselves.”

The special NFT collection was announced yesterday to a rapturous applause from the NFT community and collectors with the demand for access to the discord channel even causing a short outage.

“I’ve always used art to express my feelings and to reflect on those who matter most to me, like my family, friends and people I admire.”

Each NFT comes with a high-resolution physical edition that can be redeemed one time by the owner for the cost of production and delivery.

Twenty-five percent of proceeds from NFT sales will go to various charities supported by Depp and the heroes used in the collection.
