What is a Uke Head?

A Uke Head is one of 1,879 whimsical portraits of the ukulele by James Hill. Each is a one-of-a-kind piece of digital art that serves as your ticket to record on James' new album! Each Uke Head can only have one owner at a time.


Technically speaking, your Uke Head is a digital token called an NFT (short for "Non-fungible Token") stored on a blockchain*, making it unique and immutable. However, you do not have to use cryptocurrency to purchase a Uke Head, nor do you need a crypto wallet.

* Uke Head NFTs are ERC-721 tokens minted on the Polygon blockchain. Polygon is a proof-of-stake blockchain that is environmentally responsible and has extremely low transaction fees. 

Can I purchase a Uke Head with a credit card?

Yes! On June 1, 2022 at noon PST you'll be able to purchase your Uke Head in our online shop using a credit card. It's no different than any other online purchase.


If you already have a crypto wallet, we will send your Uke Head NFT directly to you at no extra charge (you'll just have to submit your wallet address during checkout). If you don't have a crypto wallet, you will still receive the hi-res image file of your Uke Head and all the perks associated with it via email. If you decide to get a crypto wallet in the future, simply request your Uke Head NFT and we'll send it to you. Simple as that.

What do I get when I purchase a Uke Head?

There’s more to a Uke Head than a colourful cartoon!


  1. When you buy a Uke Head you are directly supporting the production of James’ new album, Uke Heads.

  2. You're invited to our members-only workspace to meet, hang out and collaborate with your fellow Uke Heads!

  3. You get exclusive access to a high-resolution version of your Uke Head (4000 x 4000 pixels), perfect for printing a poster or making a t-shirt!

  4. You have the right to use your uke head for commercial purposes (see below).

  5. Last but not least, you're invited to play and sing on James’ album, Uke Heads, and to attend exclusive online workshops with James throughout the recording process.

Can I use my Uke Head for commercial purposes?

Yes! You have the right to use the Uke Head you purchased for personal and commercial purposes. Need a mascot for your uke club? Done. Need a logo for your ukulele brand or store? Check. Want to sell t-shirts featuring your Uke Head? Go for it! This is just one more perk of owning a Uke Head (or two 😉). Please carefully review our terms and conditions for more details.

Can I sell my Uke Head?

Yes. If you hold your Uke Head as an NFT you can list it for sale on any NFT marketplace (e.g. OpenSea, Rarible, etc.). A 10% royalty on any secondary sales will be automatically transferred to James Hill and the Uke Heads team.

Who created the Uke Heads artwork?
