WELCOME TO THE BONEZONE
This is the beauty of NFTs and the web3 community: from a simple click, you can be in the eyes of creators and collectors worldwide.
Mr Boney – and the Bonezone – put Australia on the NFT world map. Having entered the web3 sphere in August 2021, he has experienced a meteoric rise. Before, he was a designer for one of the globe’s largest sports brands.
During a severe 256-day lockdown of being unable to travel beyond five kilometers, he began expressing the need to learn more creative outlets. “What had happened was a brief break in the lockdown, and I caught up with some people, and they were asking how we’ve been spending my time. I was like, ‘I really need to try and learn something new, so I have a better answer to that question.’”
And boy, did he learn – and master – something new! He dove head-first down the rabbit hole, collecting information and getting a feel for this foreign yet wonderful digital art world. Then, it was time to create. Using his love of skeletons, collecting Goosebump books and Pokémon cards (during his early days), Mr Boney began his infamous ‘The Boneys’ Collection.
He sought to create art as an outlet to block out the lockdown noise, but what happened next was never imagined. Enter David Horvath, the creator of ‘Bossy Bear’ and ‘Ugly Dolls.’ “He loved the PFPs, so he bought some and posted about it,” shares Mr Boney. “And then, within 10 minutes, the 50 had sold out.”
The following week he created another 50, and the result was another sell-out success. Fast-forward to today, and Mr. Boney has created 666 dazzling Boneys, taking inspiration from the infamous Nouns and Cryptoadz collections. On top of that, he has created other collections, such as ‘The Boney Batz,’ and ‘Bonepen Edition’. All of which have been greatly celebrated by the NFT community.
This is the beauty of NFTs and the web3 community: from a simple click, you can be in the eyes of creators and collectors worldwide. This level of artistic exposure is unprecedented.
