A talented world-renowned singer, songwriter, and digital artist Melanie Martinez is about to join the NFT craze, by dropping her very own, intimate collection dubbed CyberBaby Toy Shop by Melanie Martinez.
Melanie stands out from thousands of contemporaries with her recognizable artsy aesthetics of pop renaissance. Moreover, the singer's first-ever NFT collection is inspired by her love for vintage stuffed toys. The young woman welcomes her fans to her inner world, where her own stuffed animals live alongside building a bridge between reality and the metaverse.
“Vintage stuffed animals have been there for me for over ten years, carrying the energy of ghosts who once loved them. These fluffy handmade creatures were all created purely to invoke joy in people’s lives. I dedicate these animations to other like-minded, vintage toy nerds who share the same affinity,” Melanie Martinez comments on her non-fungible debut.
Thus, the “CyberBaby Toy Shop” compiles five characters, so much dear to Melanie's heart: a ‘Smoking Swan,’ featured as the 1:1 primary lot, and 22 animated editions of a ‘Claustrophobic Teddy Bear,’ ‘Dairy Cow Mother,’ an ‘Emo Elephant,’ and a ‘Narcissistic Duck’. Besides, two lucky owners among those possessing 4 multiple-edition NFTs have a chance to win an open-edition animated piece via an airdrop.
If you worry about the carbon footprint left by “CyberBaby Toy Shop,” you should abandon your doubts. The collection will be carbon offset, while using Aerial.is, a sustainability platform that calculates the carbon emissions according to associated energy use. The offset will go to the certified forest preservation funds, recognized by American Carbon Registry.
The first two-part drop of “CyberBaby Toy Shop” is about to launch on January 27 at 6:30 pm EST at MakersPlace.
