#13 Cosmic Convos with Sailor Mars feat. LightenBee

We’ve witnessed a similar spike in anime projects after a rise in women-led NFT initiatives. As you may know, I’m a great anime lover, thus these advancements in the NFT sector made me very pleased. Throughout my trip, I’ve encountered a lot of amazing anime NFT artists, and LigthenBee is one of them.

It’s been motivating to follow her journey from the beginning, and she’s gone a long way since then! From trying to sell her first piece of art to almost selling out of every item she releases, she’s come a long way. Her art is brought to life by the brilliant colors she employs, which are paired with an element of movement in the majority of her pieces. I’m constantly impressed by what she comes up with, and I’ll be keeping a close eye on her growth in this area. Let us now go on a journey into the realm of LightenBee!

Rei: Hello, LightenBee! Where did you get your fantastic artist name?

LightenBee was the name of my online gaming character while I was in high school. I was thinking of something along the lines of fireflies, but I couldn’t remember the name, so I went with LightenBee instead.

LightenBee

Rei: Please tell us a little bit more about yourself!

LightenBee: Bee is my true name. Peace is my nickname, but I think Bee will be simpler to remember, and it will work. I’m a Thai artist with a Culinary Arts University diploma. After a year of working, I decided to quit my full-time job and pursue my ambition of not having to work so hard every day.

Rei: When did you first start doing work, and how have you evolved as an artist over time?

LightenBee: I’ve been sketching since I was in elementary school. I recall writing in my future plan that I wanted to be an artist, and everyone laughed at me, but I was too young to be unhappy. After that, a buddy encouraged me to start a drawing group, which was the catalyst for me to start drawing more.

For four years, I practiced with only a standard mouse. I was having a lot of fun despite the fact that I was having a lot of trouble. Then I began working part-time so that I could afford to acquire a drawing tablet. It was terrible at first, but after a lot of practice (about 2-3 years), I was able to perform some commission work. However, after using NFTs, I saw a significant improvement in my abilities (might be because of power of ETH).

LightenBee

Rei: It’s obvious that you’re an anime enthusiast, just like me! What are some of your favorite places to get ideas for your art?

LightenBee: A number of anime, such as Madoka Magica, Kill la Kill, Reborn, Toradora, and Ano Hana, inspired me and affected my drawing style. You should be able to notice glimpses of each anime in my drawing style, I believe!

LightenBee

Rei: How long do you spend each day working on your art, and how does this process work?

LightenBee: Uhm, some days I could sit at my table and sketch for 15 hours, and others I could simply lie in bed and do nothing. It all depends on how I’m feeling. I’m not sure how it works, but I usually complete my paintings in a week or less.

LightenBee

Rei: Do you have a certain mood you’d want to communicate with your art?

LightenBee: I have a joke that I tell myself about how sad I am all of the time, and I believe that comes through in my work. Making effervescent joyful art is not my strong suit.

LightenBee

Rei: When did you first start producing NFTs of your artwork? How has your experience been thus far in the NFT space?

LightenBee: In the middle of September 2021, I began performing NFTs. At first, I was having a lot of trouble. I began making NFTs on the OpenSea Polygon chain, and it took me a month to sell my first one. However, after that, everything seems to be a lot simpler. Japanese collectors have sold out of all of my NFTs, and some are by American artists.

Then, after I’d worked up enough bravery, I began listing my first NFT on Foundation, which was the most dismal experience of my life. I didn’t get the first offer as quickly as I had hoped. It was quite difficult for me to make my first sale on FND, so I opted to play a game instead. I tweeted about the game I was playing, and someone responded saying they wanted to play with me and that they would purchase my NFT if they had enough liquidity.

I didn’t believe them at first, but I didn’t care since I informed them where they could get the game. But then I realized that I placed my NFT on your tweet where you announce your daily favorites, and the person who wanted to play the game with me responded that they had enough ETH on that tweet. Along with the news from Gmail that I had gotten my first offer, I was completely taken aback. I thanked him a million times over. He even assisted me in setting up a Discord server. He is always very kind to me. Since then, we’ve been great friends.

LightenBee

Rei: Do you have any particular objectives in mind for the NFT space?

LightenBee: Is it acceptable if I keep this a secret? I’d want to sell my 1 ETH NFT or have it trending on FND’s main page. This is so humiliating to say lol!

LightenBee

Rei: In the NFT realm and in general, which artists do you admire the most?

LightenBee: My favorite artist is Salmon88. Even our art styles are so different, yet it is one of the reasons I like his work so much!

LightenBee

Rei: Finally, what is the best place for folks to learn more about you and your work?

LightenBee: I now have active accounts on Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok. Their handles are all LightenBee.
