Cool NFT Creators #3 “TETETE”

This is the third installment of our project titled “Cool NFT Creators,” in which we mainly introduce interviews with NFT creators.
This project is intended to introduce active NFT creators to a wider audience.

The content is quite simple.
Each time, we ask one creator a question about himself/herself or his/her work, and have the creator answer.

Since the words of the creators themselves are used as text, you will be able to get a sense of their characters.
We are sure that you will hear some very special stories.

The third NFT creator is TETETE.
TETETE is active not only in OpenSea but also in foundation.
He is a creator with a wonderful sensibility for color schemes and expressing a sense of movement.

Creator Interview

This is the interview section.
Let’s get started right away.

It’s funny in both letter and sound


What is the origin of the name TETETE?


It’s an inspiration!

I put it on in 15 seconds. LOL

I like it very much because the letters and the sound are hailing and funny.

Tete’s paintings don’t have a colorful style


Now I would like to ask you some questions about your work.

What kind of work environment do you use to create your artwork?


I use a Macintosh PC, Crysta software, and a Wacom intuos5 pen tab.☆


How did you come to your current style?


Originally, I changed my style from time to time in accordance with the requests I received, so it was difficult for me to establish my own taste in painting. LOL


It is difficult to establish your own color when you are doing client work because of the orders you receive.


That’s when my friend CHAN (@TinyCorp_NFT) invited me to join NFT.

CHAN looked over some of my past works and advised me that a colorful style would be good for Tete’s paintings, which led me to my current style.

As a result, I really like my current style and I am very grateful to CHAN…!


When you paint people, is there a specific order in which you paint them?


I often draw outline→eyes→nose→mouth→hair→body.

We use a lot of colors, so it is very important for the colors to resonate with each other


Many of your works are colorful. What do you pay attention to in terms of color schemes?


Because we use so many colors, we place great importance on how the colors resonate with each other.

If I adjust one color, the balance with the other colors may be lost, so I re-tweak all the colors.

It is only one color, but I think it is my identity, and I want to be particular about it.


It is true that TETETE’s work uses a lot of colors, so I agree that the slightest thing can throw it out of balance.


The rest may look like we are simply placing colors in a flippant manner? In fact, however, we follow a surprisingly rigorous process.

For example, when expressing a gradation from red to blue, instead of mixing red and blue to create a neutral color, we use colors that fall between red and blue on the hue circle, such as red, pink, purple, and blue.

By doing so, we can make the colors appear vibrant without dulling them.

At the end of the day, however, it is your own sense that you should rely on.


The color scheme was created with this in mind, so even though it is colorful, the colors are not out of place.


I rarely use layer modes such as multiply and overlay.

I tend to shy away from them because they are difficult to control and do not produce the desired color tones when used in my current style.

I love the illustrations I create when I decide to use overlays, etc., so I would like to secretly present them someday.


There are three different collections. What are your aims and future plans for them?


TETETE illust was the first collection I made.

I didn’t know the meaning of the collection at the time, so I had no particular aim.

Palette” is a collection of colorful works that I have limited the number of colors I use.

By limiting the colors, I wanted to bring out the simple charm of monochromatic colors.

I also like the cleanness of the illustrations, which is hard to achieve with colorful illustrations.

Each time, I decide on a theme color and develop it.

COLORS (FND’s collection), as the name suggests, is sold on colorfulness, and I draw colorful pictures with all my might! It’s like a painting with all my might! As it is!

I would like to draw illustrations that fully express design


Is there anything else you would like to tell us other than the questions you have just asked?


Actually, I have a long experience as a designer, so I am also good at design.☆(´>∀<`)ゝ

Any final comments for our readers?


Thank you to all of you who have always supported TETETE…!!!

Thank you very much for your support…! I gave birth to my son at the beginning of April, and it has already been 3 months…! What a surprise.

When I came back to work, I thought I might have been forgotten already. I was really happy that they accepted me.


You have had your child for three months?

So powerful, I didn’t realize it at all! LOL


I have always loved drawing, so even before NFT started, I have been drawing all the time, both in my work and private life.

I am very happy to be able to connect with you all in this way, and to feel the connection between what I have been drawing and what I have been doing…!

I still have a lot of ideas for illustrations I want to show you all, and just imagining it these days is exciting! LOL!

Thank you for your continued support of TETETE!☆


Thank you, TETETE.

I was surprised to hear your story, that you just had a baby 3 months ago.
I didn’t feel that in the slightest when I was communicating with TETETE-san. LOL

I thought her sense of color scheme was wonderful, but I was surprised to learn that she was working according to a rule, not a feeling.

I think that TETETE’s attitude toward her work can be seen in the fact that she says that when she adjusts one color, the balance with the other colors is lost, so she readjusts all the colors.

TETETE says she still has many more ideas for illustrations.
We look forward to seeing more of her work in the future.
