Like all aspects of our brand, our artwork aims to represent magical creativity and organic authenticity.
It was important to us to find an artist who could hand-draw compelling scenes, and capture our characters well (as we have pre-existing characters with deep personalities, rather than using generative artwork).
See for yourself.
We wanted to bring something to Web3 that seems lacking: PFP artwork that is an organic whole.
There's something about the composition, lighting, and meaning that can be communicated in a cohesive original work.
We are individually rendering each of at least 20 different characters from the first book, and then applying multiple color filters to each to add variation and different moods.
By combining different rarities of each character and color, there will still be a wide range of rarities, and collectors will be able to find a character that speaks to them the most.

Nate is also working on black-and-white illustrations for chapter headers for the manuscript itself, in the style of old pen-drawn book illustrations:
