I am still on a high after the success this weekend of my partnership with Blake Kathryn on Nifty Gateway. It is amazing to me that all of the pieces sold so quickly and with so much enthusiasm! Thank you to all of the new owners. I hope the pieces bring you as much joy to own as they brought to Blake and me to create.
Speaking of Blake, I am so excited for her, and for all of the other women artists out there who might benefit from this weekend’s success. Blake is a special artist and she deserves all of the recognition and praise that these pieces are generating for her. I know that she was always going to be successful as an artist, but if our collaboration sped up the process then that alone was worth doing. Together we set the bar for female artists in the NFT space, and I hope that many more talented women will jump over it so that we can keep pushing each other to greater heights.
I have been talking a lot in the past few weeks about NFTs and how I think they will change the face of many different industries. I continue to believe that if we all participate in the community in a way that lifts people up, especially those whose voices have traditionally not been heard, then the possibilities are endless. With that in mind, I will be making some big announcements about what’s next for me in NFTs, including collaborations with some more amazing artists and some drops that will show how I think NFTs can change the future of the creative economy.
This community has been so incredibly welcoming to me and so many people have taken the time to teach me about the space. I am thankful to all of you, and I hope that my excitement about the possibilities in this space encourage even more people to get involved. Thank you to the team at Nifty Gateway as well as the entire NFT community, including all the female artists especially Blake Kathryn obviously, WhaleShark, Illestrater, Swan Sit, Tina Eisen, Farokh Sarmad, 888, Pak, Ashley Ramos, 3LAU, Josh Fraser, Matt Liu, Kim Dot Com, Amir Soleymani, and the many others who have made today a most Grateful Monday after months of learning and hard work. I know that my grandma Big Kathy would be especially proud of Hummingbird in My Metaverse, as she was the inspiration.
Lots of Love,
