WELCOME TO THE
LIGHT CULT CRYPTO CLUB
WELCOME TO THE LIGHT CULT CRYPTO CLUB
Put your shadow behind you and join the Light Cult Crypto Club. The currency is creativity. The state of being is disillusionment. We are not illusioned; we are disillusioned. We have cast our illusions aside and dwell in the eternal light.
When you join us, you’ll still be you, except you’re going to be plugged into the metaverse. Every Idea you release will be replaced in your mind with 10 new original Ideas. Your new original Ideas will be wedded with past proven tropes. Dreams will become real. You’ll live alongside like-minded Bulbheads who exist through their own cleverness. As they glow brighter, so will you.
All Bulbheads are perceived equally through the eyes of the Light Cult Man, but few will be chosen to join the Inner Circle and lead the path toward enlightenment. Will you be the first to become the Enlightened Bulb?
Every character, trait, and Idea in the Light Cult metaverse was conceived, hand-drawn, and digitized solely by Ron English. Most Bulb NFTs are Uncommons; 1 in 10 are Rares.
Uncommons are 100% unique with randomly generated assets. No two are alike, but some traits are rarer than others. There are 2.7 million possible combinations of traits but only 9,000 Uncommons exist.
Rares are handmade masterpieces born from the brain of Ron English. Every Rare is a one-of-a-kind NFT with absurd qualities reflecting those of the Inner Circle.
“My best attribute is that I'm an endless source of ideas. What’s the biggest problem with being me, psychologically? I wake up with 10,000 new ideas every morning, and there’s absolutely no way the world can absorb 10,000 ideas by Ron English. Until now.”
The Light Cult Crypto Club is established on Friday, November 5th. The conversation begins on Discord, where rumours circulate and early supporters identify themselves.
The first 5,000 members to join the whitelist will be eligible for early access to join the Light Cult at 5:00pm ET on Tuesday, November 16. For a limited time, 5,000 Bulbs will be exclusively available for presale. Meanwhile, pioneering street artist Ron English will personally give randomly generated Bulbs to 100 curious friends.
Membership to the Light Cult Crypto Club opens to the public on Thursday November 18 at 5:00pm ET. If the first 5,000 Bulbs are already sold before this time, the remaining 5,000 Bulbs will be made available immediately.
Unique Bulbs are distributed to devoted Bulbheads around the world, and the artwork is revealed on Sunday, November 21 at 5:00pm ET. Those who hold the 1,000 Rares are appointed to the Inner Circle, where exclusive giveaways and special perks await.
As the Light Cult Crypto Club increases in membership and as Bulbheads continue to spread its message, more ideas begin to flow and Bulbheads shine ever brighter. The first giveaway is unlocked when 50% of Bulbs are distributed: at this stage, 250 devotees will be randomly selected to receive a framed art print signed by Ron English in Winter 2022.
In Summer 2022, 25 members of the Inner Circle will be chosen to receive a handmade resin sculpture by Ron English.
When all 10,000 Bulbs are distributed, the ultimate giveaway is activated: one worthy Bulbhead will be chosen to receive an original oil painting by Ron English. 10 others will be chosen at random to receive an original character drawing by Ron English in the Spring of 2022.
Exclusive airdrops, merch, giveaways, in-person events, and more will be available to Bulbheads on an ongoing basis as we continue together on the path toward Enlightenment.
Bulbheads will have the opportunity to collect digital artwork designed by Ron English and share their favorites with kindred souls on Discord.

THE CULT ANTHEM
Deep in the darkness dwells
The brightest night
The first glance parallels
The second sight
You can’t just see
But you must be
Be the light
Consciousness is just
The moon’s reflection
Of the sun’s bright light
Are you the planet?
Or the satellite?
Be the light
Emancipate the self
Separate the justice
From earthly fairness
Focus your vision
On the eternal transparence
Even the commons
Have a little rareness
Be the sunshine
Morning the night
Be the superman
High on kryptonite
Be the demon
That rules paradise
Be the light
Are you the food
or the appetite?
Are you the passage?
Are you the rite?
Are you the vision?
Are you the sight?
Be the light
MEET YOUR LEADER
Ron English is widely considered a seminal figure in the advancement of street art away from traditional wild-style lettering into clever statement and masterful trompe l'oeil based art. He has created illegal murals and billboards that blend stunning visuals with biting political, consumerist and surrealist statements, hijacking public space worldwide for the sake of art since the 1980s.
"There's nothing more dangerous than a good idea."
"A stream of consciousness leads to an ocean of Revelations."
"Question, believe, or lose your mind." -Ron English
"There is a light within a man of lights, and he lights up the whole world. If he does not shine, there is darkness." -Jesus Christ
Ron English coined the term POPaganda to describe his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, from superhero mythology to totems of art history, populated with his vast and constantly growing arsenal of original characters, including MC Supersized, the obese fast-food mascot featured in the hit movie "Supersize Me," and Abraham Obama, the fusion of America’s 16th and 44th Presidents, an image widely discussed in the media as directly impacting the 2008 election.
