A collection of 6,666 unique NFT’s on Cardano.
“The art was inspired by my own journey (as the artist) with learning to embrace the sides that make me different and unique, and I wanted to create something that would encourage others on their own journey of self-love and acceptance.“

WHAT IS MOTLEY MOON?
Motley Moon is a collection of 6,666 hand-drawn NFTs on the Cardano Blockchain. It is a collaborative passion project created by a team of two sisters, out of their love for art, NFT's, community, and the Cardano ecosystem.
The goal of this project is to bring a unique style of art to the NFT space while forming a community of collectors who will help us decide on the future of the project. We believe that by having a community-driven "Moon Map", the opportunities for growth and innovation are endless, and can't wait to have you join us on this journey!
ABOUT THE ART
The art within the project was conceptualized and created with the goal of providing a unique and different style of NFT’s. Although trying something new & different has its risks, we wanted to push the boundaries and challenge the expectations of “hand-drawn generative art” with our project.
The three most important aspects of the art behind Motley Moon are variety, detail, and inspiration.
WHY MOTLEY MOON?
This collection consists of 20 individually hand-drawn characters which are drawn in three different orientations: a side profile, ¾ profile, or a front-facing orientation. Instead of using one or two character bases, we wanted to create a sense of individuality and identity for each character. Additionally, each character has 100+ attribute/accessory options.
Each character is also hand-drawn with incredible detail. In order to create unique skin textures and colours, there are up to 50 layers of thin scribbled lines in various colours bringing out the highlights, shadows, and beautiful skin tones within each character.
The thought process behind the “otherworldly” & “unusual” artistic style of Motley Moon is inspired by the belief that we should embrace the “different” & “unique” sides of us as they are truly the best parts of us and what makes each of us unique.
MEET THE CHARACTERS
In this collection, we have 20 different characters, inclusive of 14 main characters and 6 “Outliers”.
The Outliers are six 1/1, unique characters which will be randomly minted along with the main characters. Each of the Outliers remain a mystery until they are minted.
So far, only one Outlier, Imogen, has been minted & revealed.
See the graphic below for the different characters and their names. This graphic will be updated as each Outlier is revealed.
Our Moon Map is community driven which means that we want our collectors to be a part of deciding on the future of the project.
We are continually taking input from our collectors in our Discord server.
Motley Moon was founded by two sisters, Jami and Jodi, who combined their various passions & expertise to create something unique.
