The Art
Inspired by Ernest Reibe’s original early 20th century character, Mr. Block, who had a wooden, block-shaped head. This 21st Century version has taken on a new life while paying homage to its roots.
This collection serves to highlight Mr. Block’s mission to drive education across the many aspects of blockchain technology.
Some items give a wink and a nod to other, well-known NFT collections while others seek to drive forward the idea that this is an inclusive community built for everyone.

FINE ARTIST & MR. BLOCK DESIGN ARCHITECT
Matt O’Neal a.k.a. Blockheady
Matt O’Neal has been a brand design architect, graphic designer, illustrator and fine artist for nearly 20 years. He has worked with large commercial brands such as Clorox, Dow and Syngenta as well as a bevy of companies in the consumer packaged goods space with special respect to brands that promote healthy lifestyles (Burt’s Bees, Naternal CBD, Tribucha Kombucha, et al). His narrative is one that fits well with Mr. Block.
A relative newcomer into the world of cryptocurrency, he began to hear more and more about how NFT’s could be beneficial to the artist and creative community and he began to investigate.
He first started listening to podcasts, reluctantly joining Twitter and finally attending the DCentral Miami conference in an effort to gain more knowledge on the subject.
It was there that he met up with the Mr. Block team and they quickly aligned on mission and vision. Now here he is — minting his first NFT project and working closely across the various Mr. Block channels.
