I am good celebrated my sons 1st birthday today . Did you guys get up to much today ?
BOZZ — Amazing! Congratulations, today is the day to celebrate so
kpz3r4 — Congratulations!
BOZZ — I have a 7 year old son too
My oldest is 5 lol . Thanks guys . What you guys get up to today
BOZZ — I finished some work today and I'm already working on the new rakazos and costumed rakazos that we plan to release soon
Oh nice . When you hoping to release ?
BOZZ — Well, new rakazos appear every week and we are preparing the costumed rakazos for 28/11
Ah so how did it all start ?
BOZZ — It all started when kpz3r4 told me about NFTs, but I didn't know anything about it, so I decided to delve into the subject and then we decided to create R4kz together and the idea of creating rakazos was to create cute creatures that would reach all audiences.
kpz3r4 how did you discover NFTs ?
kpz3r4 —I discovered NFTs first on youtube, through a very famous channel here in Brazil that talks about NFTs games called Fraternidade Crypto, and then I got to know the wonderful WAX network where we decided to launch our collection.
Who came up with the idea for the project ?
BOZZ — We had the idea of creating r4kz together, r4kz is a project that doesn't follow any theme and that gives us the freedom to create various types of art. like for example the rakazos, which is our current theme and we're giving it full preference now.
Are they meant to be be cute ?
BOZZ — Yes, our goal is to win over the entire audience and the cute things are the ones that most win over the audience.
Of course . When did you drop your first NFT ?
BOZZ — We launched AZY - The sound of the peace, 07/08/2021.
Can we have a pic ?
BOZZ — Yes .
Oh wow that's class how did the community react ?
BOZZ — Upon seeing me, they reacted very well, we still didn't have a whitelist and even so we managed to sell 20, for those who were starting it was fantastic and that motivated us even more to continue.
Oh brilliant and did it take long to get whitelisted ?
BOZZ — Not much, about 1 month.
Oh brilliant so you weren't in even whitelisted and had some followers . How many NFTs have released since ?
BOZZ — Yes it was amazing! today we have more than 70 different models and 2600 NFTs minted .
Oh wow . And do you have a favorite ?
BOZZ — So far it's AZY - the sound of the peace, it was a job I was doing a lot before I started creating NFTs. and now being able to see in people's wallets is very gratifying.
Really what about @kpz3r4 ?
kpz3r4 — For me it was also AZY, but I confess that I liked the Crazy Oranges too
How come crazy oranges?
That is really cool .
BOZZ — Thanks .
When you guys are creating is there much input between the two of yous ?
BOZZ — Sometimes we exchange ideas, I'm more in the artistic creation part and Felipe is more in the management part.
Ah so how long does each NFT take to create ?
BOZZ — It depends a lot on the art, rakazos for example already have the frame and background ready, so creating just one new rakazo takes between 1 and 2 hours.
Are they hand drawn ?
BOZZ — Rakazos are vector designs, but more complex designs are handcrafted, like Crazy Oranges.
What programs you use for finishing ?
BOZZ — I mostly use Corel Draw, it's a program I've mastered and I have years of experience, but I also use photoshop to add a finishing touch to the arts.
So not many programs . Have you done any collabs yet ?
BOZZ — Not yet, we're going to start getting in touch now with some collections to make a collab soon.
Who would be your dream collab ?
BOZZ — It's hard to choose just one because there are so many good collections, but we would like to collaborate with kennbosakgif, it would be awesome.
Kenn is a legend . Do you guys collect NFTs ?
BOZZ — Not yet, I'm focused on these projects, but I intend to make some collections.
kpz3r4 — I even collected before creating our collection, I already had many NFTs of kennbosakgif itself, crypto5tache between other, but after we created our collection I am 100% focused on it.
What has been the best part of doing your project ?
BOZZ — I think the reception from the community, it was great to see our following growing, people liking and commenting on our arts, it means a lot to us and it means we are on the right path.
What has been the hardest part ?
BOZZI think managing the time of my professional work with the creation of the arts was the most difficult in the beginning. but now I'm managing to assimilate both.
kpz3r4 — For me the most difficult thing was choosing the name hahah , it may seem like a joke but it took a while for us to choose, we even bought the domain with another name but we realized that R4KZ would be the best choice and the most perfect.
Is the plan to go full time with this project ?
BOZZ — Not yet, but maybe in the future. it would be great to be able to devote all our time to creating NFTs.
Any sneak peaks of the new NFTs coming up ?
BOZZ — Yes, we are working on the costumed rakazos, here is a preview of things to come
Oh squid games lol . Do you take a lot of ideas from the real world ?
BOZZ — I would say it's a set of ideas, sometimes I take real world references and sometimes I just pull it out of my imagination.
What you guys work as outside of NFTs?
BOZZ — I'm a Graphic Designer and Illustrator, I've been working with this for over 12 years.
kpz3r4 — I am currently dedicating my time to learn more about investing, but my profession is Warehouse Assistant.
Oh cool have you guys brought any family into NFTs ?
BOZZ — Our family has been following our work and supporting us a lot, they are very happy with our result and we are very satisfied, it is very good to have the support of the family.
Have they started collecting NFTs
BOZZ — Not yet, we are gradually bringing them into this new world of NFTs.
So are you friends long ?
BOZZ — Yes, we have been friends for over 5 years, we met playing our dear h1z1. we live in different cities, but very close.
So your gamers lol
BOZZ — Yes hahahahah
Tell us something random about yourselves ?
BOZZ — In addition to drawing, I worked in the professional diving business!
Oh cool .
kpz3r4 — Hm... I like to sleep listening to the sound of the rain, it's the best sound in the world to sleep .
Oh couldn't agree more . What you like to do to unwind ?
BOZZ — Whenever I can, I play my favorite game which is RainbowSix Siege and I love to enjoy the beach.
kpz3r4 — I like to play games and watch series.
Where do you keep the community updated about your project ?
Any chance of a drop or competition for the readers ?
