Cryptopups World Collaboration
The following is an artist profile featuring @apppllleee_pie, the creator of the featured piece in this series.
Please introduce yourself to our readers. What would you like them to know about you?
I am Apple (my artist name), I’m the creator of the Cryptopups. Professionally, I am a graphics designer from the Philippines. I do minimalist logos, posters, business cards and many more.
What was the inspiration for this piece?
So, for our collaboration piece I decided to do a mothers day special. I also named the cryptopup “Swatchy” to match the collab partner. Mothers day is a special day for all the mothers in the world, so I decided to dedicate an NFT for them.
How long have you been designing in the digital realm?
As for how long I’ve been designing in the digital space, I started around 2 years ago; making logos, cards, posters, etc. But, for NFTs, I just started a month ago and have built a wonderful community.
Can you tell us about your workflow (how do you come up with ideas, what tools do you use to create)?
My workflow is kind of a mess (but im working on it). I learned from various designers that having references is a good way to come up with a design. So, before I start designing I come up with a vague idea and I look for references. from there, I start fitting different elements till I come up with something I like.
Who are your artistic influences?
As far as artist influencers are concerned, I really don’t have a specific favourite. I appreciate art, I appreciate artists, I love how every artist has a story and has a passion to create art.
What got you interested in NFTs/Crypto Art/Digital Collectibles?
Before I started NFTs I was striving as a graphics designer / Video Editor. I didn’t really have enough luck since graphics design is unappreciated in our country. but then, I discovered crypto and NFTs. I came across beeple, who sold his art for 69M$. Then I also decided to join in on the craze; but it was difficult at first. People were only interested in selling their own NFTs; so I decided to create a community of my own where we can trade, have fun, collect and support each other.
Where can we find you online?
Anything else you’d like to share
NFTs aren’t just about selling your artwork, it’s about building a community of awesome people that helps each other grow :))
