In this episode of From the Block Chain, Ashley (Bored Becky) is joined by guest Sara Baumann, Co-Founder of Women and Weapons and artist. Before diving into NFT’s, Sara worked as an occupational therapist in hospitals and sold her art on the side. In January 2021, Sara began her NFT journey. Sara took a risk and commented on one of Gary V’s posts, and Gary bought three of her art pieces resulting in a 45 second sell out while she was working in the hospital. With this, Sara was catapulted into the web3 spotlight overnight, encouraging her to take action and launch a full 10-thousand-piece generative PFP collection, Women and Weapons. She has since launched a Season 2 collection, and has developed a related digital character, Nova.
