Meet GummyLSD, creator of LSD Gummy Bears and Co-creator of Tripped Out Leos. GummyLSD is mostly focused on AI generated music and music videos.

Let's dive a little deeper and learn more about Gummy.

What was your inspiration for your profile?
A flashy psychedelic profile that tries to live up to the LSD Gummy Bear brand.

What’s your background? What were you doing before NFTs?
I wrote poetry, created flash animations, and digital art as a teen and young adult. Been away from creativity for 14 years while working in shipyards onshore and offshore all over the world.

Then, the pandemic hit and it allowed me to live a more nomadic lifestyle traveling the US in an RV with my wife who is a traveling nurse. My early investments in crypto allowed me to use the free time to come back to my teenage passion of creating (art, poetry, music) in the form of NFTs.

How would you describe your style?
Art - Psychedelic/Abstract | Poetry - Introspective | Music - Singer/Songwriter, Indie Folk, Shoegaze/Dream Pop

What is your favorite piece of art that you’ve done and why?
An AI generated song made from a poem of mine titled Reflections of a Boy. Audio has already been mastered and AI generated music video is in the works.

What do you do for fun?
Psychedelics, Hiking (mountains), Concerts, Music Festivals, TV/Movies, Reading (Sci-Fi, Philosophy)

What is your favorite creators in web3?
My favorite creators are the two people I’ve learned the most from throughout my NFT journey: Jamex and Kush (AKA Metamushrooms)

What superpower would you have and why?
The ability to cure everyone’s mental health issues with a single snap of the fingers, because everyone should be living their lives in a way that’s most meaningful with them without mental health issues standing in the way.

What inspires you?
Everything I hear/see/read/touch/taste inspires me in one way or another.

What's the most fun you've had in the space so far?
When Kush and I first started Tripped Out Leos at the peak of CryptoLeo Mania.

Who do you look up to in web3?
Hope for an entire online experience that is completely decentralized. Fairness for all when it comes to finances and security.

What is one thing you think people don’t get in web3?
Trust, fear from news sources tend to spin web3 in a negative light.
