10,290 Original Hand-drawn Illustrations on the Solana Blockchain
The Skull of Tyger (SoT) project is about our true identity, and how we alter ourselves to feel acceptance.
Our goal is to generate mental health awareness and financial support, as well as provide a comfortable discord community with channels and events that provide direct support to the community and the holders.
The Skull of Tyger project seeks to be a positive force through art and community. Join us on this grand journey of healing, growth, self-love, and of course NFTs!
Identity vs. Social Adaptation
How often does the desire for social acceptance caused by fear, anxiety, and stress lead to identity abandonment?
The Skull of Tyger NFT project is here to acknowledge the struggle we all have with identity, and how it affects our mental health.
Each skull is a different personality, mood, lifestyle, or identity that is a social adaptation of the original.
The traits represent something that we hide or change about ourselves in order to find social acceptance.
A portion of this project will be put towards helping others in finding confidence in their identity and achieve the self-love they deserve. More details to come.

A community healing wallet will fund self-growth & mental health support opportunities for holders.
Skull of Tyger will make charitable donations to benefit organizations that impact mental health.

To call attention to ADHD, which shows in my writing, I have added wiki links to every reference or subject I mention. Having all the links open at the same time gives a snapshot into the thought cluster that causes constant distractions, interruptions, brain fog, mental exhaustion, and anxiety.
Born in the Year of the Tiger, I have always felt a connection to this incredible cat. I'm not sure if it was the hours of Thundercats, the many trips to the zoo, or growing up in the prime of Zubaz, that makes the classic appearance of the Tiger eye-catching; I mean, the Tiger Shark, c'mon now.
Living with depression, anxiety, or any form of a mental health challenge, causes difficult times to the lot of us. I find that when these low points are reached, my creative need becomes overwhelming, seeking within myself for some answer or revelation to solve this mad life. Self-love, confidence, and happiness should be had by all and yet so many people struggle to find peace with who they are. I think finding out who we are and feeling a certainty about our identity is crucial to being able to face these challenges.
Skull of Tyger Original
Pencil and ink illustration that was digitally painted over in Photoshop. The name "Skull of Tyger" is a play on words using my first name, and an ode to a favorite cartoon when I was younger called, "I Am Weasel (or I Are Baboon)."
When I originally created this piece, it was an acknowledgement of my identity, both as a person and an artist. The skull is an acceptance of mortality, but also a reminder to embrace the spirit of the Tiger within and live without fear; in order to be Grrrrrreat! (Tony the Tiger reference).
I've looked at this image everyday for nearly 5 years now, and it has given me the motivation to bring this project to life. Fear of failure, rejection, or just not being good enough holds many of us back from taking risks. I hope the Skull of Tyger project inspires you, and others to be proud of their identity.
