Announcing: The Blocks by Mr. Block™ NFT
In 1917, Ernest Riebe published a cartoon series representing a disenfranchised, blue-collar worker struggling to achieve the America Dream — Mr. Block . The writing by Ernest at the time portrayed the capitalistic structure holding back the advancement and progression of the labor workforce, which closely resembles some of the challenges faced today through — “Mr. Block and The Profiteers.”
The Blocks by Mr. Block™ pays homage to an original cartoon character from the early 20th century that appeared in The Industrial Worker newspaper. This cartoon represented a union worker appearing with a rectangular-shaped, wooden-block head who often wore a smallish top hat and checkered shirt. He was the victim of setback after setback and was portrayed to be sympathetic to the common worker. In essence, he was a servant to “The Man.”
But times have changed! The Blocks represents both the Mr. and Mrs. Blocks of Web3 have a different mission and value system: we are champions of the common person and have evolved into the role as leader and educator in the world of crypto currency.

Mr. Block Team (Doxxed)
Artist Blockheady 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 NFTs 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.
