How did you get started with art?

As a small and young artist, I grew up thinking that if I was an artist I could draw whatever my heart desired. I began drawing in 2018 and am still drawing to this day. Amino is where I have spent the last 4 years trading art with kids my age and older.

How did you discover NFTs?

My mother being involved in Cryptocurrencies, seeing that she was extremely passionate about it made me want to be involved, and I’ve never seen my mom have a hobby before; so to see her happy was amazing.

She opened my eyes by showing me amazing artists work, and I looked up to them, they sold their art for currencies that I haven’t heard of before. I wanted to be involved.

What made you decide to get involved with NFTs?

Watching these amazing artists post their work onto the blockchain was amazing to me. Knowing anyone could see my art from anywhere got me excited to start drawing and minting some pieces.

Of course with my mom’s help and her using some of her CKB to help mint them, I’ve now made enough to pay her back!

Can you tell us about your NFT journey so far? Any high’s and low’s to share? 

Some lows were when I tried to sell on opensea.io, its really a huge sea, so many artists, if you’re a new NFT artist your minted work begins to drown, not to mention how expensive in ETH it was.

Soon my mother found Kollect.me and it made everything so much easier, cheaper to mint using our family’s favorite currency, CKB. I quickly was being noticed by collectors and other artists. Just happy anyone would be interested in my work.

How would you describe your style? Where does your inspiration come from? 

My style originates from cartoon and anime-like styles, I added some shading and different line art techniques, I’ve been told that no one could recreate my art style because of how unique it is.

What is your creative process when creating an NFT? 

I’ve made tons of characters in the past when I when doing commissions. I had OC’s < original characters > so I’ve had a lot of experience in character designing. What I draw also depends on my mood, that’s why I have a Candyland and toxic wasteland collection on kollect.me.

What are your thoughts on the future of NFTs?

From what I understand there’s close to limitless applications in the real world for Non-fungible tokens. Contracts, passes, and memberships… My main interests are the future of NFTs in the art and gaming spaces.

I’m so happy that I am able to share my art via the kollect.me platform. I’m looking forward to learning more about creating NFTs in the gaming space someday.

Are there any drops that you are looking forward to?

Honestly, it is hard for me to keep up! There are so many amazing projects currently available and launching soon! Kollect.me is fast-moving and I am in awe the majority of the time.

I also spend a lot of my time creating so maybe I’m not the best person to ask. I just know that I need to save up so I can be a participant in the projects I love the most.

What would be 1 piece of advice that you would give to a new NFT artist?

Never give up. Constantly promote your art and show people your value, soon they will see just how amazing you can be. Share your story and make the most one-of-a-kind art that you can. Quality > quantity.
