Hey

Hello!

How you ?

I am great thanks!

How did you get discover NFTs

As a fan of crypto, the logical progression was NFTs. My main exposure though was from listening to the 'Bad Crypto Podcast'. They also do 'The Nifty Show', which got me onto WAX! Never looked back since!

Why did you choose WAX for your project ?

No gas fees. The ability to complete multiple transactions with barely any delay. Also, there is a really strong community on WAX, spreading across many projects, some truly great connections to have!

What is the idea behind your project ?

The idea for the project was initially conceived by Nat Monsieur, he has a French Bulldog and thought it would be awesome to build a fun collection of NFTs based on him! The art is done by Hamsieur, who is an incredibly talented artist, as I'm sure you would agree! Myself (Flid) run the Discord and Telegram, and have managed the AtomicHub/NeftyBlocks storefronts, as well as other bits!

When did launch ?

We launched back in January 2022.

How many NFTs have you dropped so far ?

We are just about to cross the threshold of 8,000 minted NFTs!

What was the first one you dropped?

Our very first ones were our promos.

Fun fact, the serial number on the bottom left is actually the epoch time of the first ever drop .

How did the community react ?

Pretty well we think, they were free drops, but I'm not totally sure they weren't grabbed by bots XD.

What is the process of making your NFTs ?

Most of our NFTs are part of a 'Doghouse'. The idea being that there is a series of 'Blend Tiers'. In order to progress to the final blends, you must complete the blends below! Once we hammered that idea out, it was then just a case of Hamsieur getting to work and producing some phenomenal and fun designs!

What programs you use for creation ?

Illustrator.

How long this each NFT take to create ?

This depends. Some are simple and just flow, some are more complex with animations.

What is your favorite NFT you have made ? Why ?

My favorite is yet to be dropped. I'm a big Star Wars nerd, so anything along those lines always grabs my attention!

Have you done any collabs ?

Not yet, Although this is something we would absolutely love to do!

Who would be your dream collab ?

SkunkyChunks, TonyTrip & FrenchMonetGang Are you a collector of nfts ? Yes indeed!

Who is your favorite NFT artist ?

I have a few: - MrTwoFu - TonyTrip - ByronTheArtisit - Frazel

What has been the best part of doing your project ?

The community. Without the community there is no project. The interactions we have are just fantastic!

What has been the hardest part ?

Learning lessons. How to make things better for the next drop. Currently the 3 of us all work full time as well as doing this project, so finding time for all of us to sit down and have a discussion is sometimes difficult.

What does your family think of your project ?

They love it.

Have you introduced anyone to WAX ?

Yes, both Nat Monsieur and Hamsieur! As well as a few friends.

Do you own land on uplift ? If so where is it ?

We do not.

What you like to do to unwind ?

Talk crypto, NFTs. Plan for world domination.

Tell us something random about you ?

I shave my head, so I can think more clearly.
