Part of what has made the NFT community so interesting is how it has allowed creators from a vast array of different disciplines to express themselves and monetize their work. Musicians, painters, animators and even illustrators have entered a whole new world of possibility when it comes to building their personal brands. ONE37pm had the chance to catch up with Jeremy Booth, the illustrator behind the Bushidos Avatar project to talk about the future of his PFP collection and his history of impressive client design work.
Booth and I begin our conversation discussing how he got into graphic design and found his footing as an illustrator. From the jump, Booth knew that having a recognizable style would be key to building his body of work. “I wanted to have a style or a voice,” he tells me, speaking about when he first got into practicing with Adobe Illustrator. At the time, he was working as a nurse’s assistant at a hospital and began experiencing some health problems, including having his first seizure. “Illustration, in a lot of ways, was an escape for me. This was during a period of trying to discover myself,” Booth tells me of this time in his life. “In that dark time, it was my way out emotionally.”
