POB outside POB #1 - The start was made

in Proof of Brain3 months ago

A month ago I made a post called Pob outside POB, showing real-life artists who do not have access to a platform like POB for various reasons, but who are still people who do the proof of brain and do not have so much recognition.

With that I start by telling the story of the photo that we can see below.

When I launched POB outside POB, I had not yet found any street artist who travels through cities to develop a work and receive a reward for it. So I went after some artist friends, after all, as I am from the theater, I know some who are having difficulty also to promote their art now that there are several restrictions due to the pandemic.

I told a friend that I would like him to draw a brain, but without saying the reason initially, after all I didn't want his art to be influenced by any value judgment. He asked how it had to be and I just answered "You decide everything, the only request is that in the end it be a brain". He was left to see what he could do, but in the end I believe he did not. I did not insist too much because I noticed that he was not so motivated, and if I were to reward someone I would like someone excited.

So I went to talk to an artist friend, who was also drawing, she made more realistic drawings, and she was excited when I told her the news. She said she was going to see what she could do, that she didn't understand what she was supposed to draw, and again I said 'Draw a brain for me'. However the days passed and again she focused on other drawings and I did not insist. Here I wanted proof of brain and not proof of insistence. At the same time I made it very clear that there would be a cash reward for both, and I didn't say how much it would be, I left it up to them to decide how much they would like to ask for the art.

Behold, I am going to the market yesterday with my girlfriend, and I meet 3 travelers who were there in the front with their cloths spread selling necklaces, bracelets, rings and various other objects that they created manually.

I bought two necklaces, one for me and one for my girlfriend, because we had lost ours a few months ago. And then I asked if they placed orders too. When they said yes, I asked for a brain, and again saying, 'the size and the way you want it'.

As it was already 8 at night, he said that the next day he would do it, I got the whatsapp from one of them, and sent a message to find out where to find them the next day.

Early in the morning, a message saying that the art was ready. He said he used the album Hemispheres by the Canadian band Rush, which plays progressive metal as a reference. I will put the complete album below, for those who are interested to hear it.

In the end, I thanked them for the job well done, gave the proof of brain reward, and asked to take a photo. What is on my crouching side is what I bought the necklaces for, what is sitting has done the brain, and the third is with them on the walks. I hope to be able to meet them again, especially since I now have the contact.

And as the title says, the start was made, now it is to find other artists who can create with the help of their brains something to be shared with you and be rewarded.

Don't forget to leave your vote, so that with the reward I can not only curate here on POB, but also off the internet

Versão em português

Um mês atrás fiz uma postagem cahamada Pob fora do POB, mostrando artistas da vida real que não tem acesso a uma plataforma como o POB seja por diversos motivos, mas que ainda são pessoas que fazem a proof of brain e não tem tanto reconhecimento.

Com isso eu começo contando a história da foto que podemos ver abaixo.

Quando lancei o POB fora do POB, não havia encontrado ainda nenhum artista de rua que viaja por cidades para desenvolver um trabalho e receber uma recompensa por isso. Então fui atrás de alguns amigos artistas, afinal como eu sou do teatro conheço alguns que estão tendo dificuldade também para divulgar sua arte agora que há várias restrições devido a pandemia.

Falei com um amigo que eu gostaria que ele desenhasse um cérebro, porém sem falar o motivo inicialmente, afinal eu não queria que a arte dele fosse influenciada por qualquer juízo de valor. Ele perguntava como tinha que ser e eu apenas respondia "Você decide tudo, o único pedido é que ao final seja um cérebro". Ele ficou de ver o que podia fazer, mas no final creio que não fez. Eu não insisti muito porque notei que ele não estava tão motivado, e se eu fosse recompensar alguém gostaria de alguém empolgado.

Então fui falar com uma amiga artista, que também desenhava, ela fazia desenhos mais realistas, e ela estava empolgada quando contei a novidade. Ela falou que ia ver o que conseguia fazer, que não estava entendendo o que deveria desenhar, e novamente eu falei 'Desenhe um cérebro pra mim'. Porém os dias passaram e novamente ela focou em outros desenhos e eu não insisti. Aqui eu queria uma proof of brain e não uma prova de insistência. Ao mesmo tempo deixei muito claro que haveria recompensa em dinheiro para ambos, e não falei quanto seria o valor, deixei para eles decidirem o quanto gostariam de pedir pela arte.

Eis que estou indo ontem no mercado com minha namorada, e encontro 3 viajantes que estavam lá na frente com seus panos estendidos vendendo colares, pulseiras, aneis e vários outros objetos que eles criavam manualmente.

Comprei dois colares um para mim e outro pra minha namorada, porque tinhamos perdido o nosso uns meses atrás. E então perguntei se eles faziam pedidos também. Quando disseram que sim, eu pedi um cérebro, e novamente falando, 'do tamanho e da maneira que você quiser'.

Como já eram 8 da noite, ele falou que no outro dia faria, peguei o whatsapp de um deles, e mandei uma mensagem para saber onde encontra-los no dia seguinte.

Logo pela manhã, uma mensagem dizendo que a arte estava pronta. Ele disse que usou como referência, o album Hemispheres da banda canadense Rush, que toca metal progressivo. Vou colocar o album completo abaixo, para quem se interessar poder ouvir.

Ao final, agradeci a eles pelo trabalho bem feito, dei a recompensa da proof of brain, e pedi para tirar uma foto. O que está do meu lado agachado foi o que eu comprei os colares, o que está sentado fez o cérebro, e o terceiro está junto com eles nas caminhadas. Espero poder encontrar eles novamente, ainda mais porque agora tenho o contato.

E como diz o título, foi dada a largada, agora é encontrar outros artistas que possam criar com a ajuda de seus cérebro algo para ser compartilhado com vocês e serem recompensados.

Não se esqueça de deixar o seu voto, para que com a recompensa eu possa fazer não apenas uma curadoria aqui no POB, mas também fora da internet

Congratulations on this initiative. I have read about it a while back, yes. But I have forgotten.
Upvoted and I will always support these actions, each time I will notice them!

Paying back life from what we are given is an excellent way to show our appreciation and support for others that surely need these things.

Bravo, @vempromundo!

Excellent work bud. I like your approach with your friends and how you didn't insist on anything. There is much more to be received when someone takes your request to heart and then provides. I'm sure they'll get round to drawing a brain at some point and I'm looking forward to the post with their artwork in the future.

I'm sure they'll get round to drawing a brain at some point and I'm looking forward to the post with their artwork in the future.

I also hope that, symbols that represent the beginning of our community can show a lot of what kind of community we are and we want to be in the future

great story, wish you a lot of success! I am doing something a bit different, but similar I guess with the Streetheart Project. I am glad we got the PoB community here as it presents much more opportunities. Wish more people on the streets could get involved with PoB and Hive, but basic access to the internet is very limited..

What an excellent project, I will even follow you so I can vote every time, I loved the concept of withdrawing money and taking a photo of your positive vote in real life, I loved the concept, if you allow me I would even like to be able to adopt your way


Posted via proofofbrain.io

yes sure! I always thought that this would be fitting for a community in itself, but now that we have PoB I think it would fit here nicely as well. Especially since we can use the extra tokens for the projects. Re-followed you as well ;)

In the end, I thanked them for the job well done, gave the proof of brain reward, and asked to take a photo. What is on my crouching side is what I bought the necklaces for, what is sitting has done the brain, and the third is with them on the walks. I hope to be able to meet them again, especially since I now have the contact.

@vempromundo you did a wonderful job sir ,keep it up....

And yeah the artists too was fanstastic ,he did so well....


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Yes, the guys are amazing and with great musical taste


Posted via proofofbrain.io

This is a good initiative. Am sure a lot of people will benefit from this outside the blockchain.

It might even help create more awareness for the blockchain in general with time.

Nice one keep it up mate 👍

The Art is superb. How I wish I could get something like that around here lol


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Totally agree with you...@marvinix


Posted via proofofbrain.io

The incentive has to continue, maybe one day we will be big enough to send the works to someone who comments


Posted via proofofbrain.io

That’s will be great. Can’t find such artist easily around here.

Awesome work. Great way to help real artists.


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Thanks man, the art breaths


Posted via proofofbrain.io

That is some nice, original jewelry.

I am from Canada, we hear Rush all the time.


Posted via proofofbrain.io

I discovered Rush only thanks to their indication. The band is very good.

Cara, que ideia genial essa! Achei muito válida! Imagina quantos e quantos artistas poderiam estar recebendo esse tipo de recompensa né? É literalmente uma bolsa-pob.
Lembro de no passado, quando estava morando numa casinha em uma chácara, tentando viver a vida de cultivar alimentos orgânicos, ocupar-me do que é real e natural, pensava: -Como é injusto que pessoas que tentam viver uma vida real, natural e ocupada com coisas que amam não tenham acesso a uma "bolsa ou incentivo" para continuarem nisso sem ter que se dimiuir e voltar as rotinas massacrantes.
Os caras como esses loucos aí que você encontrou são guerreiros, por seguirem nesse rumo sem desistir, resistindo na contra mão.
Ah, e fiquei intrigado em como ele fez esse cérebro! Adorei!

Antes de fazer a próxima postagem, já vou adiantar o spoiler aqui pelos comentários. A próxima arte que vou postar vai ser uma caneca que vou comprar do @hranhuk, é tão spoiler que ele vai descobrir por esse comentário.

O cérebro foi feito com Durepox, eu acreditei que ele ia fazer quando eu chegasse lá, mas quando acordei já tava pronta, então não vi o processo criativo e construtivo, o que acrescentaria muito a postagem se eu tivesse visto e registrado


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Boa!! No aguardo dessa postagem da caneca então! E aproveitando a ideia, não deixa de encomendar uma camiseta minha! Trabalho em casa fazendo serigrafia! :D heheh

Sempre achei incrível essas habilidades dos caras com durepoxi, são artistas mesmo!


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Se prepara ai, que depois da caneca vou encaminhar a camiseta, dependendo da pra fazer os dois juntos, economiza no frete, o que acha?


Posted via proofofbrain.io

your article was heartwarming and enterteining.


Posted via proofofbrain.io

thanks for the recognition


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Que incrível isso cara!

Uma ideia sensacional sua. Eu sempre dou valor e valorizo esses guerreiros que estão na rua todos os dias viajando e vendendo suas artes ou nos sinais.

Porque eles seguem um estilo de vida, liberdade sem estarem totalmente preso a "tradição" e para isso precisa de muita coragem quando nós não nascemos em berços de ouro.


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Eles estão muito dispostos na jornada que procuram. Geralmente essa galera tem um coração enorme, e isso é o mais importante, sempre trazer paz pro próximo.


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Exato amigo. São pessoas incríveis e muita história para nos contar e a gente aprender.

Thank you for reaching out to the world @vempromundo. This is a hero story worth telling and accentuates the core of the POB brain's philosophy in practice. I consider this a milestone community in the blockchain. It just makes sense to bridge the world online and offline. This is the proff of brain. I understand. It's also a proff of heart.

I consider this a milestone community in the blockchain.

I hope so, pob has to much for grow, and i trust this community


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Parabéns por essa iniciativa incrível! De longe, esse é um dos melhores (se não for o melhor) projetos POB que eu já vi!

No que depender de mim, esse projeto só tende a crescer. Conte comigo!

Valeeeu, eu vou tentar com as recompensas dele procurar mais artistas que possam ser alcançados.

That's so cool @vempromundo. A very noble initiative to reward people who are adding value.

I agree that value is everywhere and we must do our best to reward & encourage it. After all, things like these make us the most advanced species.

Please keep on doing this as much as you can.

I have one suggestion: I am not sure if you tell these artists about this amazing blockchain. SO while you are out there helping people, you might as well ask them to check this out.

I can make a Digital Card for you which you can give forward to these people and ask them to join the platform. That would be a great marketing medium for us. ^_^

Something like this would work wonders, and if you want, I can make a few more versions and the community can choose which works the best. I will make them in printable format so that anyone can get hard copies and distribute it.


Posted via proofofbrain.io

I even accept one with my @ writing, but it is difficult to invite people to the platform because it is all in English, and very few people in my country (Brazil) know how to read anything in English, let alone write


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Iniciativa bacana! A ideia de não forçar é interessante também. Faz quem quer, e colherá os frutos quem fizer!!
E finalmente matei a curiosidade de saber o que era esse cérebro!!


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Agora tem que ficar por aqui heim


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Cool story. Thx for sharing.


Posted via proofofbrain.io

thx for comment


Posted via proofofbrain.io

I love this initiative, it's a great way to curate Proof of brain outside of POB.


Posted via proofofbrain.io

Yes, I will try to bring some more things in that direction
