Hello! I'm Bobby

and this is my story...

My parents are famous scientists, but my parents are also cruel. They were never proud of me. I was always too ordinary. They said they deserve a better son.

So... they started cloning me over and over again until they got their perfect child!

Well, at least I'm not lonely anymore. Scroll and meet my crazy family.

Meet my brothers

We are the same as any other family. Except there are 3.000 of us now! As you can imagine, each of us is a bit different. The most important thing is to stay yourself no matter what.

Playing with DNA has its price

Cloning people is not easy. Sometimes something can just go wrong.

Nevertheless, my special brothers are fine, and their uniqueness makes them even more beautiful.

FAQ

What is Hello Bobby?

Hello Bobby is a collection of 3.000 unique NFT avatars on Ethereum network.

What was the idea?

The origins of the project are based on a personal design challenge from some time ago. Each day I illustrated one character using a very simplistic style. No shading, no gradients, no details. Only thick, rounded lines and flat colors. My library has grown over time, and the idea of Hello Bobby avatars collection appeared.

How was it done?

All artworks are generated from around 300 manually crafted illustrations divided into seven categories. A huge amount of possible combinations allows each Bobby to be one of a kind.

Whom will you meet in the collection?

Original Bobby

Bobby is a common guy who (like myself) is a bit nerdy, likes retro games, and spends too much time in front of a computer.

Clones

The majority of clones are just ordinary guys. They know there are identical, so they dress and behave weirdly to stand out. I hope you'll find your favorite one.

Rare clones

Some of Bobby's siblings couldn't stand being common. That's why they wear rare clothes or try to have a unique look.

Famous clones

You already meet some of them above. Famous Clones found their unique path in life and became recognizable.

Special clones

The cloning process is complex and may be impacted by unpredictable conditions. Each time this happened Bobby's family grown by a special member.

Perfect Bobby

Bobby's parents finally stopped cloning. Maybe the last clone is a perfect child they desired. Or maybe they understood Bobby wasn't that bad...

About author

Except I was not cloned, I'm very much like Bobby. A common guy full of nostalgia about good old times when life was easy. When I could turn on NES for a couple of hours, hang out with friends or sit and read comic books about superheroes. Who knows? Maybe there is a bit of Bobby in you as well.

Future of Hello Bobby

Creating this set of avatars was great fun and a return to doing cool stuff. I won't actively promote it, so I assume it will stay here without much attention. However, somehow you are here. If you want to let me know about anything feel free to reach me at j.cryptonic@gmail.com

Project Timeline

THE PAST

I've created all project assets and generated 10.000 random avatars (only 3.000 will be minted). All Bobbys are ready to be added to the Collection. Well, that took some time but it was great fun. Anyway, I don't think I'm going to repeat that soon....

FIRST DAY

Today (11.10.2021), I added 50 first plus 50 random Bobbys to the Collection.

NEXT DAY

Every day I'll pick up a random number from 1 to 100 of free IDs and send new Bobbys to meet they brothers.

LAST DAY

The project will end when all 3.000 Bobbys reunion at Open Sea. That can be from 30 to 3000 days from moment I wrote this. I hope I'm not too old for this project...

MINTING PROGRESS

Progress can be checked at Hello Bobby Instagram.

Updates

Bobby changes direction

When I started Hello Bobby I had not much idea about NFT space. I just got extremely hyped about generative art and wanted to learn it. Without the Community, without the Team, even without a smart contract. I can agree, I did every possible thing wrong :)


Recently I decided, that I'm not able to mint 10k Bobbys manually. It just takes too much time. At the same time, I enjoy drawing those 1:1 characters even more than in the beginning. That's why I decided to lower the collection number to 3000 and focus on creating my favorite pop culture characters.


For some these drawings are just simple lines for some bring childhood memories. I'm definitely in that second group, and I hope you will find your favorite Bobby :)

Bobby has fans :)

This is something hard to believe. When I started Hello Bobby I had two things in mind. Learn about art, nft, crypto, and have fun. I would never expect that someone will buy one of those little fellows. Every time I receive notification from Open Sea starting with "You item was sold" I'm literally shivering.


Thank you all for being such a huge support and keeping this project alive ❤❤❤
