The Art of Bit Butts!

Our team of brilliant artists, designers, illustrators, and painters from major Hollywood animation studios (Disney, Dreamworks, & Warner Bros.) gave Bit Butts its distinctive art style and twisted sense of humor.

Dave Kupcyzk is a master animator and character designer whose incredible ink line and outrageous sense of humor set the tone for Bit Butts. His cartoony chaos reigns across the entire drop.

Dave’s line drawings were then brought to living color by veteran animation Color Stylist Tristin Cole, who created the unique color palette and painterly style for the collection, and Trish Burgio, who took an illustrator’s approach by pushing the finished artwork from the sublime to the ridiculous with her imagination and storytelling.

Lastly, every item in the collection was hand-painted, hand-selected, and hand-assembled by the team, not generated by an algorithm. Every Bit Butt is a unique 1 of 1, in a 6,666 piece collection full of weird and wonderful surprises.

Each Bit Butt minted results in a bonus to the artists, marking the first time in their careers they’ve actually received “back-end”.

BE A META-X Studios FOREVER OG!

Bit Butts marks the launch of META-X Studio’s audacious Cinematic Metaverse of Web3 Content!

Bit Butts NFT HODLers will become our FOREVER OGs! You’ll be massively rewarded as we launch our next two projects in summer and fall 2022.

Slackerverse™ (a metaverse of pointless, under-powered, superhero wannbees in a fantastic collectible card game), and Bit Pirates (arrrguably the most swashbuckling,  puzzle-driven, crypto treasure hunt on NFT Worlds™).

Our mission is to drop so much value to META-X OGs that flippers of Bit Butts will be punished throughout Web3 lore for all eternity.

The Team

Bit Butts is brought to you by our “crack” team here at META-X Studios… the puns write themselves.

We are founded and led by creatives who believe if we put great work first, if we reward both the amazing artists behind our projects and above all, our community members, success will follow. 

Here are some of the people who actually thought a series of back seat NFTs was a good idea, along with actual, unretouched photos of their genuinely alarming glutes.

Sir Mix-A-Lot is best known for his worldwide hit "Baby Got Back".
On top of this multi-platinum single, he had three straight platinum albums. Sir Mix-A-Lot has won a Grammy Award and American Music Award for Best Rap Solo Performance.

Sir Mix is also one of rap’s great D.I.Y. success stories. Coming from Seattle, a city which at that time had a strictly local Hip Hop scene,
Sir Mix co-founded his own record label, promoted his own music , produced and mixed all his own tracks, built his studio by himself and essentially pulled himself up by the proverbial American bootstraps.
