The @NFTAlleyCat collaboration features two common NFTs: one greyscale piece of art and a gradient “utility swatch.” Blend them to form a rare, full color version. Blend all three to redeem an even rarer black label version.
Please introduce yourself to our readers:
Hey how’s it going? I am NFTAlleyCat, or “Catarax”, and I am the Creator of the CryptoCrypt & TeneInfernum Collections. I’m from Los Angeles and have been creating Artwork for 8 years now.
The CryptoCrypt houses NFTs with Individual Lore, Tying into the overlying Realm of the Collection: Netheros. As well, I have started a 1 of 1 Series of Cat Familiars called “Nekos”.
What was the inspiration for this piece?
I was inspired heavily by imagery within Dante’s Inferno, and the Video Game Elden Ring. Tie that in with the Lore I create currently in the Crypt, and it creates a beautifully macabre scene.
How long have you been creating in the digital realm?
My digital art journey has only recently started, with a good portion of my beginning pieces in the CryptoCrypt being Physical Artworks, Scanned and Edited to create the finished product. I had dabbled a little bit in Digital Mediums beforehand, but had not felt I was ready at that point to make the leap.
Can you tell us about your workflow?
I use an iPad Pro, Apple Pencil Gen 1, with Procreate. As for the Brush Packs I use Grit Texture Supply now for mostly everything, and have modified them a bit to my liking.
Who are your artistic influences?
Artistic Influences I would have to say are Junji Ito & Jamie Hewlett
What got you interested in NFTs/Crypto Art/Digital Collectibles?
I found NFTs last March, after a Live Demo by @LushSux on Instagram/Twitter.
I got hooked instantly after a heavy night of research and a rabbit hole of articles.

Checkout my Collection of 1/1 Nekos on Neftyblocks and the AH Secondary Market. Neko Breeding is coming out soon, once we hit 100 total Nekos. From there, a large portion of Gen 2 Nekos will be created by the Holders of our Gen 1 Nekos.
