Killer Acid continues to make waves in the NFT space selling "The Scream, 2022" on Super Rare for 31.069 ETH this afternoon. After a bidding war between @spartanblack_1 and @radiosolace broke out, the price skyrocketed from 13 to 30 ETH within the last hour of the auction.

Tyler Hobbs is a generative, digital artist hailing from Austin, Texas. His works focus on algorithms, plotters, and paint.
Tyler writes and programs custom code that can be used to generate visual imagery, in his attempts to strike a balance between structured computer imagery and natural, organic art.
Hobbs' work is valued at upwards of $100M with his highest single piece sale "Incomplete Control" going for $181,285.77. Yet, he's most most famous for his work with the generative Art Blocks Curated collection, "Fidenza."
Tyler is quoted as saying Fidenza's are his "most versatile generative algorithm to date."
The community has agreed with this sentiment trading nearly 25,000 ETH worth of the 1,000 piece collection since its release, pushing the floor price to 50 ETH at the time of writing.
Now Tyler Hobbs has been working on a series 1/1 plotter drawings in a collection entitled "F(l)ight." Having only released images on Twitter, Hobbs has yet to mention if any of these new algorithmic drawings will go up for sale.
Jonathan Lindgren is an up-and-coming 3D animator from Stockholm who works with soft, free flowing animations. As an award winning artist and 3D designer, Lindgren has worked with clients such as Google, Apple and Microsoft.
He joined the NFT scene a little over a year and has found success with his 1/1 works and Tiny Heroes NFT collection.
His 1/1 of pieces can be found on Foundation and have sold to other established artists like DeeKay Motion & Vollut.eth. Pieces have ranged from 0.25 ETH - 1 ETH with his top auction "Wind Tempos" going for 3.124 ETH.
After growing a following in the NFT space, Lindgren has begun to work on a collection of miniature hero 3D figurines entitled "Tiny Heroes." The collection has been primarily available through early access which can be received through various competitions within the Tiny Heroes Discord.
Each character ranges from 0.25 ETH to 0.6 ETH depending on rarity class and currently holds a 1.25 ETH floor.
In tandem with the "Tiny Heroes" collection, Jonathan has been teaming up with projects like Cycl:R to create other Tiny Heroes artwork outside of the collection.
Although a smaller following, ~5,000 Discord followers, as an artist, Jonathan has been growing and succeeding in the NFT space this last year.

XCOPY has not released any information on upcoming auctions or drops, but his collection "Grifters" continues to hold a 12 ETH floor as the cheapest entry point to any XCOPY work.
