How did the concept of Cel Mates come about?
In January 2022, I started doing some NFTs on Foundation. Some, 1:1’s. I was doing quite well. I started to think about how we could do a bigger collection. My agent is really into NFTs, and he was really keen to try to help and see how we can make it happen. We didn’t want to do something that was too friendly, we wanted something that had an edge to it, something a bit sarcastic. We came up with the idea of Cel Mates. It’s a play on words, it’s prison, it’s fucking great.
How did you collaborate with your agent and the team on this project?”
We kept in close contact in our Discord chat throughout the whole project, and with the entire team. For almost every angle, we asked each other, what would you do, what’s your take on this. This teamwork really is reflected in the Cel Mates project. We had a really wild ride, it was really fun to work on everything from the artwork, Twitter, the microsite, and the sweepstakes.
