Hey bro

Hey What’s up?

Not much in work you ?

Home from work, finally a easy day. And working on some art .

Oh nice guessing its for your project ?

Yeah Season 1 has all of its monsters. But working on my season 2 pack while I wait for a second.

Ah when you hoping to have season 2 ready?

Well Pretty much its almost done and I haven't even released 1 yet so I'm a bit head of myself. Season 1 will have a pack and b pack. Both will have a certain monster you can blend into a Supermonster . My project is done by myself.

So its a one man show?

Yep and I think my pace doesn't show that or maybe it does. But feels like things go super fast at times.

How did it all began?

Hm. Life mostly. Have had a difficult childhood growing up. Divorced parents, verbal abuse but hey life can be a nightmare. Which I work in the mental health field. Where I help others. So with that be said lil Munk appeared, I love to doodle on back of paper or even clipboards lol .

And what made you get into crypto ?

Stocks. Bought into stocks when covid was happening. Then made some money that way for my family. Then took mental health off for social media but came back. Go into crypto over the beginning of summer. Haha I Have Shiba lol 😂 … which you never know right .

Oh god lol and how did you discover NFTs ?

Mmm I discovered that by , Möbius .

Ah what made you start creating?

Well I love art. And well baseball cards the good old days of collecting. Always wanted to be the next garbage pal kid haha.

Was WAX blockchain the first place you minted on ?

Well I put stuff up on Opensea under polygon. Which Mobius helped me find wax. Which I just fell in love with. Its so much simpler.

And how you finding WAX blockchain

I enjoy it. I think it does have some flaws as in collections are placed with games but other then that. I usually use my phone or my pad. But I do love what some people do with art! Dont get me wrong there is some really awesome stuff out there.

When did you launch on here ?

Last/this month .

What was the first NFT you dropped ?

For wax Or Opeansea

Both ?

For wax it was a Bart Simpsons I drew inside a lil munk with a modern art look. Duck blobs bought that right when I put it up.

How did the community's react ?

Opensea dead air nothing. But didn't really I guess try like I do for WAX . Its my goal one day to just do this for my life. Which I couldn't tell you more I love it.. hands down.

Are they 1 of 1s ?

Yes

How many NFTs have you released since?

A lot. Um maybe 🤔 around 109 or more

How often you dropping them?

Need to more often. But work/family/life get in the way at times. When I get free time now I do this. I don't want TV and I cant sit through movies with my leg problems… but my joy comes from drawing.

What's the idea behind your NFTs?

To be like the next baseball card, or magic. To be able to play them like your in school with your friends if we are headed towards gaming? Plus I love Horror. Growing up my grandpa introduced me to all kinds of monsters. So ever since I've love them. I still remember he told me we were going to watch the Addams family we did but it was the black and white TV series which was just dope as hell.

Ha ha ha . What has been your favourite to create?

Damn now that's a hard question each lil munk is drawn. So …. Hmm 🤔 i love my new one.. but that's suppose to be for a season 2 haha.
