Q&A with Maxwell Step:
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I’m 28 years old and my name is Maxwell. I’ve always been an artist, but I just began making pixel art two and a half years ago. I also work as a product designer and create graphic shirts. I live in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
When did you initially release your NFT?
On December 27th, 2020, I released my first NFT on Rarible, named “OOTD.”
Have you ever dropped NFTs somewhere else?
Rarible, Foundation, and Zora have all been dropped.
What drew you to this particular drop?
I wanted to draw something that would emote in the most basic manner to build a connection via such a rigid and emotionless medium as the black experience and culture.
When did you first begin creating digital art?
I began when I started college in 2011, it was my first time ever doing art on a computer since I didn’t have access to certain programs or even a computer when I was younger.
In one words, describe your work.
I use squares to create portraits that capture the spirit of individuals.
As an artist, what possibilities have NFTs provided you?
As an artist, I am able to carve out a niche for myself that I would not have had access to otherwise. I’ve been able to connect with other artists more readily and support myself via my paintings.
Is there any advise you could provide to other creators who wish to build NFTs?
Don’t get caught up in the hoopla or trends; instead, pursue what you love. Make the kind of work that you’ll be proud of in ten years.
