So lets say this is actually a returning artists but has changed his name and his whole project looking and its night and day between his projects but the work is just as good and he has brought a lot of great artists in with him Il let him explain it a bit more .
Hi Man welcome back !!! How you today?
Slept out first time this week...so, I am relaxed😁
Nice . What's the plans for the day ?
Today I will work and after the work in my "real" life, I start to improve the Met The Artist Patch for the free giveaway.
Ah nice . So we might as well say you have been here before but under a different name ?
Yes, Dagga is known under Mosaic NFT Art, my old name. As I started doing NFT art, my focus was to make stamps with mosaic patterns. After a while, I realized that this pushes me into a drawer. The old name suggested that my art consists of mosaics, but honestly, I have done not very much mosaic art assets. I had to find a name that is not inevitable bound to my stuff, so I changed it to Dagga.
...well, everybody loves Dagga😜
What does dagga mean or stand for ?
Dagga is another word for weed. Originally, it was used in areas of the southern African continent but it spreaded worldwide . Weed aka cannabis😁
Ah so what brought you into NFT world in the first place ?
I am in crypto since 2016/2017. As I read the first stuff about NFTs (guess it was early 2020), I was totally in flame for it and the possibilities it opened for me. Idk exactly but I think it was a post from Ravencoin that let me dive deeper into NFTs.
As I know and most people knew as mosaic art when why did you decide creating NFTs was for you ?
I started in January this year 2021 doing my first stuff.
What made you get into it NFT creation?
I was always very interested on making digital art. Many years ago, I started to teach myself Java as the first android phones came out. I developed apps only for myself, just to learn coding. Every app needs it's design, that's how I started to make digital art. I was very long inactive because having a full time job in real life and most time a girlfriend, there is very less time for it.
Of course so you actually took a break from creating are you glad to be back ?
Yes. Sometimes it's hard to do both jobs. Also, I don't wanted to do more stamps stuff. I think it's important to grow and make something different if the time has come.
I understand so you now have come back now with your new project what's it all about ?
The new project is called NFT Patches. I'm my younger days, I was a big Heavy Metal fan and had some jackets with a lot of patches. Somedays I was out with friends and we remembered this time. That was the moment the NFT Patches were born.
Ah so will we be seeing some metal and rock band patch's soon ?
I don't think so. I mean, it would be absolutely awesome to do some for example with Iron Maiden, but this would only work in Corporation with Iron Maiden. If I want to do something like this, I have to hold the rights to do it. It means, either I have to pay them to use their Logo, or they have to enjoy my idea and getting involved with a profit share. Both is unrealistic, I am not liquid enough to pay them and not famous enough that they take notice of my stuff😁
I meant would you create your own rock metal badge with fictionally bands ?
Ah, maybe. Currently, it was just a project NFT related with some awesome NFT Artists and their logos. First I want to see how it wakes up the NFT community. Maybe there is no market for this, maybe it booms
Well your first batch of packs drop tonight who can we find in the first batch ?
Oh, it drops on today , 10th of October 8:00 CET in the morning. The drop consists of different packs, one small pack for the people with less wax, one big pack and both packs again with a reduced price for Dagga Elite Patch holders.
There are 10 awesome artists/patches inside. For example Zany Gumballs, Silly Psy Ben, Nippy Nip, Cartoon Family and more. Additionally, you can get Punk Patches and ingredients for upcoming blenders. The exact details will be found on the pack description.
Also, there is a free promo pack released some hours after and a thank you patch pack for everyone who is able to collect all patches of every artist inside the first drop.
But that's just the half, there will be about 10 more artists in the second drop after the first drop sale.
What made you go out and get other artist involved in your patch's ?
I love collaborations. It's important for me to learn from each other and make friendships instead of being competitors .
Of course I have also seen your cryptocurrency patch's how many of them have been created ?
For the first drop only these 5 will be available and only for those who are able to collect all patches. 5 new ones will come with the second drop. I have created more, but I am not sure if I will release them later.
So it depends on sales do you have any other projects idea in mind ?
Of course the sales are an important factor but not the only. Doing NFTs is very time intensive and a lot of work. You have to decide if a project is profitable enough. At the end, you can have a lot of fun, but if nothing comes around, you can't eat from. But having fun is not less important, so you have to get the balance. A project that is only profitable, but boring or only exhausting will not satisfy me too.
I have a lot ideas in mind, but if they will be realized....idk, time will tell.
Of course so from January this year to now would you think you have upskilled in NFT creation ?
I definitely learned a lot since then and I would say, yes my skills in digital art leveled up. But measured on the sales, it looks like I'm getting worst😁. NFT has changed a lot, in the beginning everybody was on fire. Meanwhile, the big players have overtaken the market. The user wants collectibles from big companies or assets that are used in games. That's something I can't provide currently. But one thing I will never do, prostitute myself only to make more sales.
Who knows my stuff knows also that I don't sleep, I always try to do new things. And if the most are awaiting the same style all the time or gaming assets, then I have lost. But better lose and have fun than sell for millions and get captured in a cage and never find out.
I think everyone should think like that don't sell your soul . So how many NFTs you think you have created since January ?
Lol😁...I absolutely don't know. Including my two collections mosaicstamps and mosaicartcrd and the new patches collection....maybe near to 200
Wow are they both based in the same wax wallet ?
Yes I counted about 120 only on mosaicartcrd, so there must be a similar quantity on mosaicnftstamps. I made a lot of stamps and even much collabs
Do you have any favorites over the two projects
Hard to say. I usually won't evaluate my own stuff. I think I was most satisfied with the dead punk cards.
Currently only on Twitter. I have also a TG channel, but not very active here. I am not a TG friend. Discord is great for making more stuff with the community, but I haven't enough time to take care of it.
Have you asked to join NFT lounge on discord ?
Yes, I am a golden collector
Would you not ask to feature as an artist?
Silly Psy and me talked about, yes I think in the future I can be a part of it.
