“With something, you will have people who perhaps go a bit of bit too far.” That is how artist Musketon (aka Bert Dries) begins to explain his newest mission, CryptoBro, “any person that’s actually into crypto, and it’s like a faith nearly.”
As a loyal satirist who left high-end model work solely to seek out his artistic output mocking related (if not the identical) manufacturers that had as soon as been his purchasers, it appears inevitable that Musketon would set his sights poking enjoyable on the most outspoken and visual set in all of web3: CryptoBros, highlighting the stereotypes as he noticed them — Crimson Bull, Xanax, Bitcoin baseball cap, and chilly pockets shut at hand.
Because the illustration of Musketon’s fictional toy made its rounds on social media (“I feel the crypto bro illustration is being reposted by precise crypto bros. I feel they really assume it’s humorous.”), an unbiased toy maker primarily based in France reached out with a proposition to create an actual CryptoBro toy. And so, a bigger imaginative and prescient of the CryptoBro mission was born.
“I’m an artist, and I could make individuals pleased with precise bodily stuff. When you have a webshop and folks purchase prints, they begin sending you messages like how grateful they’re to have the print truly of their lounge, as an example. So I at all times actually loved making these bodily items after which truly sending them out to individuals.” — Musketon
