Hi, and welcome to my first Featured Artist. I'll be asking an artist friend 3 questions and giving them this space, whenever I feel. As I get better at interviewing people the questions may grow, but we'll see. Heres the first artist: Cryptomatic.
When I first started my journey into Cryptoart I remember Cryptomatic being one of the first artists I interacted with. Entering a new scene is pretty daunting and not knowing anyone is pretty tough, especially in a place so loud like the NFT and cryptoart scene. I really enjoy the playful humor in his art, and his drive is amazing and inspiring. I look forward to his future works and I'm sure he's going big places :)
"HAPPY" by CRYPTOMATIC
Q: How did you discover Cryptoart, what made you take the leap, and how has it changed your life so far? A: Although I have been involved in trading for a while, I was introduced to cryptoart by a relative of mine who insisted I needed to give it a try. This whole concept has changed both the way I look at art and the way I design, I'm pushing myself harder than ever to learn new techniques and come up with different ideas and concepts.
I was also introduced to an awesome community where I get to interact with great artists/people from all over the globe.
"Deserted" by CRYPTOMATIC
Q: Where does your inspiration come from, and what is the attraction for you about pixel art in particular? A: I love using different techniques and styles but I am greatly focused in pixel art.
My inspiration comes from my childhood, when I played titles like Indiana Jones, Maniac Mansion, The Dig, Monkey Island and others. There is something about that kind of art and the stories that just blows my mind.

Q: Are you a Morning Lark or a Night Owl?
A: I run a business so i'm forced to wake up early some days but I'm definitely a night owl. If the night comes with rain, thunder and lightning even better.
