The @DemCuteFrens Collaboration features three common NFTs. Two solid colored swatches and one piece of original art from @DemCuteFrens. Blend all three on NeftyBlocks to receive a limited edition black swatch. Combine the Black Swatch with all three commons to receive a golden swatch.
The following is an artist profile featuring @HumbleDrawing, the creator of the featured piece in this series.
Please introduce yourself to our readers:
HumbleDrawing´s is a team consisting of brother and sister Sára and Kenneth.
Sára is the main artist, and mainly makes traditional physical art pieces, Kenneth is the “tech guy” and sometimes makes digital specials of our original pieces.
We are based in Denmark, but have roots in the Faroe Islands.
Sára is working full time as a nurse, and has been drawing and painting on a hobby basis for most of her life. Kenneth works full time as a fabricator/welder
What was the inspiration for this piece?
A lot of the inspiration either comes spontaneously or from the beauty in the nature all around us, this shows up on quite a few of our released pieces, and is the case for this humble Buttercup flower as well.
Even if it might be considered just to be weeds by some, it still holds a ton of beauty
How long have you been creating in the digital realm?
We have been NFT´s for right about six months at this point, for Sára it´s over 25 years of drawing and painting on a hobby basis
Can you tell us about your workflow (what equipment and software do you use to create)?
For our physical pieces it varies which paints and canvases are used, a lot of pieces are made on canvas with acrylic and other types of paints, also a lot of pieces are made on paper also with different paints, watercolors etc.
Most of the materials are from the local hobbyist store, not always the top of the line stuff, but there isn´t really a need for using expensive things to obtain amazing results.
For the digital pieces we make, we have been using GIMP and After Effects, Kenneth has recently embarked upon the journey of learning Blender as well, as we´d love to make some more animated pieces in the future.
Who are your artistic influences?
It´s very tough to pinpoint any single artist, there are simply just so many talented artists and creators in the space, it´s almost daily we stumble upon someone who makes something amazing, different or somehow not seen before.
The easy answer would be to say nature, as it really does have a big influence on some of our pieces
What got you interested in NFTs/Crypto Art/Digital Collectibles?
Kenneth has been in crypto on and off since 2010, and the interest for NFT´s spiked back in late January this year as it was mentioned by a friend what NFT´s were, Kenneth started looking into WAX, and began collecting different NFT´s.
And with the knowledge that Sára loves making art, I suggested that we could try to make her artwork into NFT´s, and here we are 🙂
Where can we find you online?
We currently don´t have a website running, but we do have a domain linking directly to our collection on AtomicHub
Anything else you’d like to share?
We are very close to dropping our first redeemable NFT´s, these will be in form of a 3D printed Lithophanes, the first ones will be of our HumbleHouses No. 1.
The lithophanes will be at a limited amount and each one will have it´s own unique Mint # engraved right in there. This is something Kenneth has been working on for some time now, and we´re very close to satisfied with the results
