The NFT creator introduced here is Kusari.
Each illustration has an impressive facial expression.
We wonder why he is able to draw such wonderful expressions…

Interview with Kusari
Blockchain allows you to connect with people around the world
What is the origin of the name “Kusari” and why did you choose it as your theme?
If I start talking about the origin of my name, it would take a long time to get to the level of asking you to join me for a night of drinking, so please take a look at the back of my business card first.
I’m curious about a certain video called…
A certain video is Ikehaya’s (@IHayato) YouTube How to Buy Bitcoin.
This video is probably private now.
From there, I tried pancakeswap operation, which was operated by Mr. Ikehaya.
At the time, there was no information available in Japanese, so it was difficult and I soon failed.
Pancakeswap is hard to find.
At that time, I saw a tweet by Mr. Ikehaya on Twitter that said, “Well, 99% of Japanese people will give up on Defi operation with their literacy, but wow,” and I felt as if I was being told what to do, so I studied hard while translating foreign articles out of frustration.
This is a very Ikehaya-like tweet.haha
From there, I was drawn more and more into the world of blockchain and joined ICL (Ikehaya Crypto Currency Lab), which was subsequently established, and encountered a completely new term, NFT.
I am also in ICL, and there is a lot to learn and inspire me.
Illustration is a hobby, and since he had been doing it for so long, he started working on a Twitter account named Kusari, which is Japanese for blockchain chain.
So the name comes from the blockchain chain.
I was very excited because it combined two areas of activity that never intersected in my mind!
The reason why I have so many crossed letter designs in the background of my work is because of the focus on “two areas that never intersected” and cross-chain, a technology that bridges and utilizes two different blockchains.
We want to do our best to deal with each and every one of our valued holders
How do you plan to develop your collection in the future?
Nothing in particular.
If I say that I am just an anxious creator, I will explain why not in particular.
It came out of nowhere, and I was surprised.haha
I may have a slightly different purpose for engaging in NFT activities than other creators.
I do not want to make a living from NFT or make it a side business at all.
From among the many NFTs that exist in the stars, they are interested in my mood and irregular releases, and are willing to pay me an important asset for it.
I want to do my best to deal with each and every one of these precious holders.
It makes so much sense.
I remember when I purchased your work, I received very enthusiastic and wonderful comments from Kusari.
I really appreciate your sincere response when I approached you for an interview when I started NFT Art Creators.
We enjoy daily Twitter conversations, enjoy Metaverse and BCG together, support the activities of holders, and sometimes as business partners.
We believe that we will meet the right people at the right time. We do not rush to expand sales or scale. This stance will not change in the future.
In summary, he is just a guy who goes at his own pace.haha
However, I think there are some people who are not looking for this kind of hot and bothered relationship, so the design of illustrations that you would want to display oncyber and consideration for trends.
We are always trying to brush up our 3D works that can be enjoyed in the metaverse space.
I want to make him as expressive as possible
About your work, I found your facial expressions very beautiful.
What is important to you when you draw?
I myself am a bit expressionless, and there have been many times in my life when my emotions have been misunderstood and I have gotten into trouble.
That is hard.
This is a problem of nerve transmission and muscles, which is difficult to improve, so I want to give the characters in my works as many facial expressions as possible! With this in mind, I have practiced a lot by looking at character expression practice books and my favorite manga.
I always draw while thinking about the character’s personality and the situations in which they appear.
It is because of such a base that we can express a wonderful expression.
It made a lot of sense to me.
Comrades-in-arms who have studied together at ICL(Ikehaya Crypto Currency Lab)
This is a bit of a change of subject, but you are active as an inheritor of the CryptoNinja game “CryptoNinja Party!
I was approached by Kasokinniku(@crypto_muscle_), the president and founder of SoudanNFT, and Hush Palette, who is in charge of managing and overseeing the lore program, and who has studied with me at ICL.
I accepted this project because both of you are holders of my work.
I know that the lore program will be over by the time this article is published, but I plan to play CNPT as hard as I can, as I love the game myself.
Kusari is really very facetious.
I am sometimes surprised when I talk to him.
IsekaiBattle and Elemental Knight will also be distributed in a dedicated room at X2EDAO, where President Aki (@aki_web3) is the main founders.
I am the logo icon for NFT Gamer Japan (@NFTGamerJP), the largest BCG community in Japan.
If you are interested in BCG, check this out too!
Representative Luin (@luin_aozora) is also a holder of the chain series.
If you are interested in blockchain games, please check out X2EDAO and NFT Gamer Japan.
I often see Kusari series holders on there.
I, as well as myself, can see that everyone is connected through the chain.
You and I are already bound by a chain of hard bonds
Is there anything else you would like to tell us other than the question?
I would like to promote my Twitter icon, header, and business card as they are filled with memories of everyone I have connected with through NFT.

The chain letter is Mr. Ichiya.(@ichiyaduke23)
Pippi, Ichiyoru-san is also a holder of my work, as the three of us have collaborated on works together.
In the middle are Harapei’s CutePigs.
Harapei-san (@harapei2) and I are neighbors and go out for ramen in real life, so I asked him to draw a piggy from a ramen shop.
We are almost out of time, so I would like to ask our readers for any final comments.
Thank you very much for reading this long article to the end.
You and I are already bound together by a tight chain of bonds after reading this article.
Let’s enjoy NFT together with me!
Judgment Chain! (Kurapika’s telekinesis in Hunter ✖️ hunter)
Thank you, Mr. Chain.
You did a great job in closing with the chain as well.haha
After the interview with Kusari
I think the name, his thoughts on the work, his stance on the people around him, and his chains expressed his personality very well.
Below you will find links to Kusari’s Twitter, OpenSea, and Foundation, so please click on them if you are interested.
We look forward to your further activities!
