When Sailor Mars, the official ambassador of Japanese anime and manga website Crunchyroll, was invited to be on our show she thought it would be a “cute” moment. But this isn’t your usual interview! We wanted to dive deep into her thoughts about cryptocurrency and how important it is in today’s modern society.

Sailor Mars is a Sailor Scout from the anime series “Sailor Moon”. She has many powers, one of which is her ability to transform into a cat. In this episode, we talk about how she found out about cryptocurrency and what it means for the future.

Everyone is invited to join me on my adventure into the NFT universe. My name is Rei (Sailor Mars), and I’m quite happy to be here. When I was approached to write a piece for, I didn’t hesitate to accept the task. Writing has always been a desire of mine, but I’ve never had the opportunity. It seemed like this was the chance I’d been waiting for all my life.

If you follow me on Twitter, you already know how passionate I am about promoting new NFT talent. My ambition is to become a well-known figure in the industry and to utilize my clout to help musicians get the attention they deserve. Along the road, I aim to meet as many interesting people as possible and acquire as many gorgeous NFTs as possible. This isn’t going to be a quick read; I’m in it for the long haul!

From now on, I’ll be releasing weekly Cosmic Convos with new artists I’ve found, giving them the chance to share their stories and show off their stunning artwork to my adoring audience. Because I want to give each artist my full attention, I believe concentrating on one artist at a time would enough. I’ve been thinking about who I’d want to talk to for my first week, and I promise you won’t be disappointed. I’m bringing a slam dunk!

I’d like to introduce you to my first Cosmic Conversation with the incredible GHST GIRL:

Lindon, Lindon, Lindon, Lindon, Lindon, Lindon, Lind GHST GIRL is a fantastic name! Can you explain me why you choose this name and when you came up with it?

GHOST GIRL: By definition, a ghost girl is either a female you’ve seen once and will remember for the rest of your life, or a girl who is mistreated and taken for granted. After splitting up with an abusive ex, I changed my name. After he attempted to ruin everything I cared about, including my physical and emotional health, friendships, and my computer at the time, I felt like a ghost of myself. My previous identity was likewise something my ex picked for me, so I changed it as a show of defiance at the time. Part of being a ghost girl, I believe, is finally discovering your value as a result of the aftermath. I also have a proclivity for producing females that leave an indelible impression.

Rei: I notice you’re also putting on VJ shows. Tell me a little bit more about yourself.

GHOST GIRL: GHOST GIRL, GHOST GIRL, GH VJing has been a part of my life for nearly 5 years. I attempted to learn a little bit about all areas of production in order to improve my VJing. I ended up appreciating 3D animation and DJing/producing a lot more than I expected. When I first used Zbrush, I realized that was exactly what I wanted to pursue for the rest of my life. I never expected to feel that way, so it took me completely by surprise.

Rei: Let’s chat about your work now. What inspired you to start doing art in the first place? Was it always 3D animations, and when did you start generating NFTs instead of art?

GHOST GIRL: My mother claims I was often in front of an easel as a child. In my teens, I began to take things more seriously, and between the ages of 11 and 18, I produced a large number of comics. I was greatly impressed by qinniart when I was 18 and believed I wanted to draw comics professionally using watercolors. I didn’t have much of a support structure at the time, and people in my life would tease me about my interest in painting.

I once took a year off from painting because I was in a highly toxic atmosphere and succumbed to the pressure. I’d been told my whole life that my artwork would never offer me joy. People tried to force their views of what I should do on me, but they never supported me in doing what I really wanted to accomplish. I ultimately gave in and accepted a position as a dentist office manager. I was in a bad mood. When I got home after a hard day at work, I’d focus all my negative energy into painting.

I was eventually inspired by a VJ performance at a gig, and I was so taken aback by the VJ set that someone noticed and informed me they utilized Resolume. I immediately downloaded it after the program at 2 a.m. and began studying how to utilize it. I’d simply practice on my TV till I got to the point where I was performing shows. I wanted to make my own graphics. I started with 2D animation, but realized that 3D better fit the style I was striving for, and that creating in 3D was more enjoyable than working in 2D.

Rei: Your work has a lot of sci-fi, anime, and gaming influences. What sources of inspiration do you use to create your artwork?

GHOST GIRL: GHOST GIRL, GHOST GIRL, GH I don’t have a single source of inspiration for my artwork. I like combining diverse styles and making mood boards with works that I believe complement one other. I’m an art geek, so I’m constantly looking for new artists, and most of the time when people attempt to introduce me to new artists, I’ve already looked at their work. When I chat to individuals, I’ve observed that I know a lot of various aesthetic categories, and they’ve never heard of stuff like pastel gore, metalheart, y2k, vapor wave, and so on. I like watching anime and will frame by frame attempt to imitate the body/camera motions in situations that inspire me. I think cam and e-girls have wonderful clothing, and I often model my characters after them.

Rei: Do you have any other artists that you like, and why?

GHOST GIRL: GHOST GIRL, GHOST GIRL, GH So many, hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha Camilla d’errico and Brando Chiesa are two of my favorite actresses, and I consider them to be my first inspirations. Furio Tedeschi, Ash Thorp, Vitaly Bulgrov, Xsullo, Fidjey_, 7bpictures, Karlifetz, and others are among my favorites. Because there is so much wonderful work in the world, I am readily inspired. On a personal level, I believe I look up to the musicians I speak with, and they are also real individuals. I spend a lot of time with Kiba Zero, HoboMango, JonathanPuc, Rndr fvctry, and Sweeper3D. All of them are fantastic artists and friends.

Rei: I notice you’re also quite busy with your Glitch Girls project, which came out on October 23rd. Can you tell me a little more about the project and how the concept for an NFT project came about?

GHOST GIRL: GHOST GIRL, GHOST GIRL, GH My eyes were spinning in the back of my brain as I considered conducting a generative NFT project and watched YouTube tutorials on how to build the generative algorithm. Camisade messaged me a few days later, wondering if I’d be interested in doing one with his crew. From the playingarts project, I knew him and a few others of his team. It was absolutely perfect! Cam seems to have read my thinking, hehe. 

Glitch Girls presently has a supply of 6969 coins and is in the process of minting them for the general public. There are two types of Glitch Girls: light and dark, which may be fused together to form the Glitched and Bound collection. We’ll be releasing an incredible tale about why this is happening shortly, but we don’t want to give too much away! Before the 7th of November, all holders will have the opportunity to get a fully animated airdrop (private sale + gas). The fact that we’re contributing a big portion of the project to domestic violence groups is perhaps my favorite element of the plan.

Rei: Do you have any special themes you’d want to communicate via your work, particularly with Glitch Girls?

Glitch Girls were supposed to be powerful, sensual, and intriguing. I posted a rather explicit painting around a year ago and joked about forming an OnlyFans for my art. “You don’t have to drop down to that level for men’s attention,” a close friend told me. My mouth fell open; I hadn’t expected that individual to be that harsh and dominating. They assumed I was straight and extremely twisted up to perceive sex work as going down a level, which I thought was audacious of them.

My artwork is one of the few locations where I can experience a sense of liberation and escape; it’s really holy to me. Because I’ve dealt with it so much over the years, I don’t appreciate it when others in my personal life attempt to manage it like that. I thought about it and concluded that many people believe feminism is about setting women free from being feminine or seductive, but I believe feminism is about enabling women to be who they want to be without having to conform to severe social/cultural standards. Many of the women I know find strength in feeling attractive or feminine on their own terms. That is something I attempt to capture in my work.

Rei: Finally, do you have any particular objectives in mind for the NFT space?

GHOST GIRL: GHOST GIRL, GHOST GIRL, GH A few days ago, I received a message from a man who gave me a picture of his six-year-old niece. He said that he purchased a Glitch Girl because he wants Asian American women, like as his niece, to be more represented in the NFT community. I felt it was the healthiest gift I’d ever received. The objective, in my opinion, should be to make the environment welcoming and safe for individuals from all walks of life. I’ve had to deal with a lot of sexism, racism, and homophobia throughout my life, and I hope that by doing so, I may at least make a difference in how future generations are treated so that they don’t have to.

I want to utilize my experience in the NFT area to help others with real-world problems. I’m really dedicated about assisting other domestic abuse survivors. We just contributed $10,000 to API Chaya, an organization that assists survivors of domestic abuse and human trafficking, via Glitch Girls. They specialize in assisting persons who face linguistic and cultural obstacles. I assisted a neighbor with a non-DV emergency; she could not understand English, therefore I had to assist her in dialing 911. I had no idea how tough it may be for folks who don’t know English to receive aid in an emergency until that moment. I couldn’t believe she phoned 911 and no one helped her due of the language barrier, and it took them hours to get a translation for her when I called.

Rei: Would you want a more utopian or dystopian future over the next 25 years? What role will NFTs play in the future?

GHOST GIRL: GHOST GIRL, GHOST GIRL, GH Because technology evolves at an exponential rate, it’s very impossible to determine. Because quantum computers may one day render present blockchain technology outdated, the blockchain may need to evolve. However, advancements in technology would be required behind the scenes, and I believe the notion of NFTs and cryptocurrencies will continue to exist. I like to envisage a world where NFTs are ubiquitous. Snapchat already has augmented reality glasses, which is crazy. Before virtual reality becomes more integrated, I believe augmented reality will become more popular. I like imagining a pleasant utopian future in which virtual reality is used. I mean, I never imagined there would be more enjoyable ways to earn a career 10 years ago than there are today, so I hope I and others will feel the same way in 25 years.

More GHST GIRL art may be seen at the Foundation.
