Hello there, I'm Byron from Canada and I draw zombie cats. They're like regular cats, only zombified. Over the years I've drawn and painted a lot of cats. Some of them have been commissions for people who love their pets and want to see what they would look like as zombie pets, without the danger. Most of them though, are from my imagination and they often showed up when I was not feeling on top of the world.
They helped guide me through some darker times and as such have been really hard to part with, but I do love to share them.
The time has come to find new homes for the original paintings and let them help others deal with the fLies in their lives. I have started to list my zombie cat artwork for sale online in my Ko-fi store. Ko-fi is a lot like Patreon, only different.
One of my least favourite things about being an artist is having to price my artwork. It was even harder when I was younger but even now after all these years I have trouble.
I try to price the ones I like a lot higher than the rest,
and the ones that really mean something to me, they get an extremely high price that might seem unreasonable
but if I don't value myself ... why would anyone else?
So there's a tip - different price points.
And after some time, effort and consistency, it pays off with a sale or two.
Anyways ... I thought it would also be smart to make that artwork into a pack for selling and sharing on the blockchain. I already had the artwork ready to go, so why not? I quickly whipped up a smooth looking pack cover and templated all the different paintings.
When I say quick, I mean I did it as fast as I could but it still took a few hours.
12 Artworks templated on WAX along with a pack template. Then set up the pack opening on Neftyblocks and finally the drop set up on NFTHive.
Now I need to write a quick article about this (Which im doing right now) and then update my website too.
I already added it to a WAX NFT drop calendar and my own calendar too.
I know I've been spreading the Zombie Cats around on different blockchains to see what sticks. After 2 years though, the WAX blockchain still comes out on top for creative versatility and so much baked in utility that really doesn't have to stop.
So what's next for the zombie cats and Byron in general? More posting of the original art to try to sell it all because I have a huge desire to know it's out in the world with people that want it while also minting the art into Digital Art Collectibles on the WAX Blockchain.
