Late in 2021, I was approached by an acquaintance for a freelance gig - to create the character design & attributes for a concept they had: a character generator NFT for lonely sock puppets.
Discarded, lost, single and bearing the personalities of their previous owners, these sock puppet characters are on a mission to find their partners, or sole-mates.
With the bomb-looking character design & attributes ready to drop, I was tasked with coming up with a trailer to announce the launch. The concept was to design a 35-ish year old gamer/crpto nerd's room, with a sock drawer open from which a multitude of items are flying across - socks, buttons, glasses, rolling paper, etc.
Here's a BTS look into the design of the room, created using Mental Canvas.
A collection of 5,678 unique generative CNFTs of whacky characters released onto the Cardano Blockchain on 22nd January, 2022. Every attribute will have varied rarities but here's the twist... Each sock will come with a 'Sole' Mate metadata field. This field will hold the identity of the perfect partner.
The objective is to unite the two lone socks meant to be with each other in one wallet. This will add a unique value to each CNFT, irrespective of the rarity. United Socks can then take part in the "Knotting Event".
While 80% of the collection will have 'Sole'Mates, while the rest will be forever alone....or will they?
