The following is an artist profile featuring @maiki_NFT, the creator of the animation in this series.
Please introduce yourself to our readers. What would you like them to know about you?
Hi, I am Maik. I come from a small village in Germany and currently I am living in Hamburg. I´ve been working in the so-called “creative industry” for the last 10 years, doing mostly animations and illustrations for movies, documentaries and the advertising industry, but I didn´t like “the industry” so much, so I quit a year ago and now I have a relaxed job—just three days a week in a small shop—and the rest of the time, I make my own stuff, at the moment mostly nft-related.
What was the inspiration for this piece?
Haha, I don´t know. Don´t you think you should have bought more bitcoin?
How long have you been designing in the digital realm?
In the digital realm for 10 years at least, but with NFTs i started maybe a month ago…
Can you tell us about your workflow (how do you come up with ideas, what tools do you use to create)?
I sketch a lot and if there is an idea worth producing, I use photoshop and illustrator mostly to create my animations.
Who are your artistic influences?
That´s hard to tell because there is a lot of stuff that keeps me inspired everyday. I love to read, listen to music and watch anime. I cannot give concrete names, but what keeps me motivated doing NFTs
is the great community we have, especially on WAX. people like you, a lot of the nice collectors or other NFT artists like my acid ally sillypsyben @PsySilly (check him out!) are keeping me motivated to produce.
What got you interested in NFTs/Crypto Art/Digital Collectibles?
I have been producing things my whole life and the best thing about NFTs is that i can produce them almost anonymously, so i just started.
Where can we find you online?
My website is down at the moment, but I think there will be a new one soon. You can find me on twitter: @maiki_NFT, on
WAX: erfb.wam, or you can just check out the secondary market on atomichub: https://wax.atomichub.io/
Anything else you’d like to share
Thanks for this great collaboration! Always hit me up if there is a nice project i can participate in, and if there is someone very good with the techi stuff and wants to help me produce blind packages with NFTs, setting up the blenders right, hit me up.
Have a blessed day and don´t believe everything they tell you.
