On August 19, capital6529 paid a whopping 350 ETH for “The Sailor” NFT by Fewocious. The looping, animated NFT depicts a morphed human face in typical Fewocious style—otherworldly pop surrealist art in vibrant colours. Its description reads, “i don’t know what’s ahead and i can’t be certain. moving onward and upward, my friend… at least im trying.”  

After the sale, 6529 Tweeted, “Bringing a @fewocious into the 6529 family has been a very long time in coming.”

Meanwhile, Fewocious also shared a touching message. “My sophomore highschool English teacher saw this and messaged me saying she’s gonna add this piece & my story to her lesson about resilience to her students.”
