Graphic designer, illustrator and nft artist
Hello! I’m Rafa, known as Pixelado in the Cardano NFT Community. I am a designer and maker (in real life) owner of a design studio/workshop dedicated to creating handmade objects for modern lifestyle.
I am from a small town in the NW coast of Spain and since I was a kid, back in the 80s and 90s I was passionate about creativity, illustration. comics and animation, inspired by superheroes and anime.
Why Ash & Tray
In 2020, during the pandemic, I began to draft Ash & Tray, inspired by some people around me and some situations in our contemporary society. I made some sketches of the guys and drafted their personalities.
At that time I had no intention of doing anything with it, it was just a hobby. Me and my sketchbook.
When things went slowly back to a certain normality, I closed the sketchbook for a while. Then in late summer 2021 I began tu learn and invest a few of my savings in Cardano and started to get interested by nfts. I created Pixelado as my artistic name and began to learn everything I could, while doing some random artworks as a way to create a portfolio and showcase my work.
At some point, I decided to dust off Ash & Tray and create this NFT project, a series of comic stories, designed to be funny and ironic.
My goal is for you to enjoy Ash & Tray and for the characters and the community to grow into a great project in the Cardano NFT Ecosystem.
