Fat Kid Co. is the creation of Nick Purifico. In the true millennial fashion, Nick quit a successful advertising job, moved West, and decided to found an apparel brand that celebrates the sweet side of life. The metaphor may not be PC, the logic may be slightly broken, but Fat Kid Co. speaks to who we are and what we love. If you have any questions, interests in collaborating together, or just want to say hi, shoot an email over to email@example.com.
FatKidCo NFTs are an extension of the FatKidCo physical brand and follow that general theme. Series 1 is titled “7 Deadly Sweets” and is loosely based on the 7 deadly sins with the first mint being a hand drawn limited run of 50 Lust Pops.
What is the projects launch date?
We chose to launch quietly on 7/22 and all 50 were made available on OpenSea
How did you come up with the idea for this project?
I’d been following the NFT market for the past 5-6 months. As the market became flooded with what I felt were generic copies of previously successful projects I thought there was room for more original works.
What Makes this project unique?
As I mentioned these are hand drawn and follow an overall theme.
How Big is the team and what are their roles?
Or how small…the team is 1, me. I drew these. I have had some help from family in regards to helping get the word out on Twitter, Discord, etc, but thats it.
What is the price?
I priced the Lust Pops at .05 eth each or roughly $100 or so.
Why is that price fair?
Being hand drawn and part of an overall set I think so. These are tied to the physical brand as well.
What is the Mint Size?
I minted the Lust Pops at 50 and thats the plan for the remaining 5 in the series.
Are there any mechanics we should know about?
If anyone collects the first 6 in the series then they’ll receive the 7th hand drawn piece for free.

WhIsBe brings us their 3rd major NFT drop this week.
WhIsBe’s mysterious vandal gummy mugshots began appearing on the streets of Brooklyn in 2013 as wheatpastes and murals. Fast forward to 2020 and you can see 6 figure 7 ft sculptures all over the world, in museums, public spaces, even in the lobby of the World Trade Center in NYC. The image is now infamous with collaborations with brands, such as Coach and events like Burning Man and Coachella. He has sold out booths at major art fairs and is a staple of Art Basel week in Miami often with hotel/restaurant/club takeovers as well as being featured at major art fairs. To put his explosive career into perspective, collecting WhIsBe now is like collecting KAWS five years ago. In the last decade alone we have officially lost 11 animals to extinction, not just insects that we may overlook, but majestic beasts such as the Western Black Rhino and Pinta Giant Tortoise. we are poised to lose many more unless we take action. WhIsBe uses humor to bring to light the plight of animals on this planet, but with an underlying wake up call, there are actions we can take to prevent many of these extinctions, there are organizations striving to save these animals such as the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust where WhiSbe will be donating a portion of the proceeds from this drop. For WhIsBe’s third drop with us there is also a set completion element! Five 1/1 ‘Never Forget’ Vandal Gummy’s are available to redeem, for the first three people to collect all of the five ‘Species’ series, and the first two people to collect all of the five ‘Endangered Species’ series, may not be easy, but with a draw for a $1m 1/1 in this drop, certainly worth the effort.
