Buddy Bucks was inspired by a reflection on concepts of time, financial freedom, and the overall pursuit of happiness. The collection – illustrated through the “lens of the inner child” – incorporates thought provoking messages while integrating global issues and pop cultural references. While developing Buddy Bucks, we didn’t want to give the world another generated project using layering and software with a roadmap full of empty promises, there’s way too much of that in the Web3 space right now. Instead, we wanted to create a collection that stimulates meaningful conversations that dive deep into the art and its messages. So we decided to bring this reflection to life through a collection of 5000 1/1 pieces, each individually hand-drawn on Instagram stories.
