So this one came about by being in a friends telegram chat last night he was showing off some new NFT's he had gotten of a new member in the channel so I thought I would see if he would enlighten us on his NFT's so he graceful accepted so lets meet him by the way Pixel Lab is a team
So what's your artist name ?
hmmm. I don't have one ... should I think of one?
Well if you don't have one that's ok
Yeah just call me Todd 😊😊😊
That's no problem and does your team have a name ?
Pixel Labs :) that's what we're going as
So what is the idea behind the project ?
it all started with Paulie the Penguin being "trapped" on the blockchain - and we're introducing new animals as well, to help find him I guess but yeah, the idea behind the project was to introduce a bunch of animated animals to the blockchain and i think the final release will be when they all come together and "find each other" so right now they're all just "trapped" on an adventure all doing different scenarios this was all just a learning process for me
Right so lets start from the start where you and your team from ?
we are from California
How many are on the team ?
There is 4 of us in the team that's why each animal was a different style Oh, we tried launching on the Ethereum blockchain via Opensea, but the gas prices were way too high .
I know even moving coins on ETH is hard as high gas fees
yeah, it's literally like $60 - $150 gas, depending on the time of day, and I didn't think that was right
we just wanted people to be able to collect the NFT's for a reasonable price
Ok cool and are they all invested in this project or do they have side projects?
no, this is a side project for them everyone else has other jobs it's more of a learning experience for everyone
Dnt worry I am not far behind you I create meet the artists because I think not all artists are getting equal promotion
yeah there are a ton of great NFT pieces out there , buried in the depths of the blockchain
I know and I hoping that promoting artist will help them
yeah, i think what you're doing is great!
I'm always interested to hear how people find out about NFTs and artists that's how I ended up in the telegram channel. I saw @SillyPsyBen buy one, went to his wallet, and saw the telegram link when I asked ben how he found me, he said he found the art in someone elses' wallet ... so it's like a snowball affect
That's how I found you he was flashing your NFT's in his telegram chat and I asked who it was and I tired to find you on twitterthen you turned up in his chat Ben is a legend he was one of the first guys I interviewed
Yeah he seems like a great guy. I'm reading thru your interviews now
So I am trying to make my interviews better each time
yeah they look really good. I'm impressed
Thanks 😍😍😍 I know so you have a lot of love for the community
I think it's great when artists support artists, that is why we moved to WAX - because we can transfer the NFTs around, without having to pay $60-$150 each time
and I can gift/trade them with other artists
I think people will like that !!!!!!
So this isn't a full time job yet ?
I do website design and marketing full time the other guys are mostly students and younger
What got you into NFT world ?
I've always been interested in crypto and when NFT's came out I just wanted to get in and learn
Right now there are different "schemas" so each schema is a different animal we have Stanley the Shark // Polar Bear Pat // Tessie the Turtle // Micah the Meerkat and of course the Paulie the Penguin
What made you get into NFT design in the first place ?
I mostly wanted to learn what NFTs were, and I figured the best way to learn was to design my own.
Do you have any crypto currency ? If so what you ?
Yes. I've been a HODLer of $DOGE since 2013. I also HODL $BTC/$ETH/$LTC and now $WAXP
Have you always been artistic ?
Digitally, I'd say yes. IRL, not really 😜😜😜😜
What your favorite software for designing NFT ?
I use Photoshop for just about everything. I learned it at a young age so I feel comfortable working with it.
What advice do you have for people trying to get into NFT ?
Great question. I know a lot of investors are flocking to the space to try and make a quick buck. I'd suggest NOT doing that. If you want to get in to NFTs, do it for the love of the art, do it for the love of new technology, but don't try and get rich quick. It will most likely lead to disappointment.
What hobbies do you ?What you do for fun ?
Surfing, Golfing, Hockey, Sim Racing
Do you have set animals you want to make and would you expand ?
I do want to introduce at least 5 - 10 more animals and re-unite them all , kind of like Noah's ark😜😜😜😜
and the final release will be more rare than the rest
like a mural !!!!!!!!!!!!
So any chance of a small airdrop for people reading this ?
So give me a follow @cryptopenguin10 on twitter and tag me and @crackers832 on there and retweet the article and drop your WAX address in a comment . I'll try and hook a few people up :)
Just a few more question left for you is there else people can keep up to date with your and finally this is for an article that will be be put on read.cash do you use it ?
Right now CryptoPenguin10 on twitter is the best way to get in touch with me. We will soon be adding a website for Pixel Labs so stay tuned.
No, I have never heard of read.cash until today. I will certainly check it out!
Sorry I never brought up Collab's are you open to them
