Nature is the blueprint for all of our creations. We are all unoriginal in the eyes of nature and so I would point to intention and feeling you get from a piece as I said previously connecting to the artist and looking at previous works can also help.

Creativity is very subjective if a collector finds value in said art who are we to stop them. However it’s very important to see the body of work the artists started with, many myself included don’t delete old work from 4 years ago and you can see how an artist has developed over the years and judge based on how that makes you feel.

What kind of motion design do you think is worth collecting, what should people look for when determining the value? 

I’ll say what I wouldn’t recommend mostly story based animations or anything too complex or too long the simpler the better, simulations is something I have yet to see more of and I like that myself.

Spirituality, Nature, Heart Break, Self discovery.

What themes/subject matter/topics do you often address in your work? 

Spirituality, Nature, Heart Break, Self discovery.

Can motion designs become a fine art genre and enter the mainstream art market through cryptoart?

Absolutely we already see them on billboards on big LED screens in stores and malls this is JUST the beginning.

The role of social media in your art career? 

Social media is one of the best things to happen to digital artists, it has provided me with many mentors and insight on my personal growth and exposed me to many things including choosing my career path I am in right now. 

Why do you think motion designs are on average highly valued in the crypto art market?

Motion design can take a still art form and bring it to life, I think thats why even art installments that manipulate light, space and give you the illusion of movement are so amazing to look at, that’s why having a moving piece of art will always give you more to think about it’s very stimulating the brain. 

What are the differences between the crypto art world and your original background? What are the differences between being a crypto artist and a motion designer? 

With my journey specifically I never intended to take on client work that just came with the fact that I enjoyed making art in motion and still to this day my priority is always my craft and my art and even the client work I get is 99% of the time a request upon what they see in my art 

What do you hate about cryptoart? What aspect of it should be improved/corrected?

This space is fairly new to many of us and all the doubts and fears will course correct themselves in time just as when we had doubts with the crypto community in general.

What has been your cryptoart experience by far? 

It has been wonderful I am taking it extremely slow as I love dropping pieces when they are ready and on my own time, not over-saturating my existence within the space.
