THE MEMES BY 6529: SZN 3
A meme that rocked the world along California's Highway 1— Here is the story how it unfolded.
One fateful week the legendary Frog House surf shop, known for their uproarious meme signs, declared something utterly outrageous: "now accepting eggs as payment." Well, I simply couldn't resist the temptation. I seized the moment, approached those meme masters, and proposed a twist of epic proportions. I asked them, with a twinkle in my eye, if they'd be willing to switch it up to "now accepting JPEGs as payment."
You see, I explained to them the hidden meaning behind the JPEGs. It was about embracing the art and freedom to transact. And guess what? These champions of creativity, in true artistic fashion, said, “Sure thing, let's do it!” Can you believe it?
Now, here's where it gets even more exciting. To give this image a life of its own and allow endless remixing, I decided to transform the logo into the one and only Pepe House. Oh yes, we're taking this meme and we're riding the wave straight into the Open Metaverse. The Pepe House surf shop shall forever be the unique abode of this legendary meme, birthed from the gracious participation of the Frog House.
If you find yourself in southern California stop by the Frog House at 6908 W. Coast Hwy, Newport Beach, CA 92663 to support this local business and infamous surf shop.

ABOUT THE MEMES BY 6529
The Memes is a notable curated collection of art whose goal is to spread the message of decentralization in a playful way that tweetstorms, policy papers, and podcasts can't. The Memes are large edition, CC0 (public domain) NFTs that spread far and wide, are remixed, ReMemed, and reinterpreted by the world at large.
Their hope through this project is to create a historical record of almost every artist of importance in this era and I was honored to be selected to create a piece. All 350 editions were sold within the first two minutes of the release.
