The story behind Mad Lips 21

Updated: Mar 2

I was born in Montréal, and I was raised by my two parents, and we were a humble family. I did not always have the best clothes, but we always had food on the table. Not only that, but I couldn’t ask my parents to pay for school, and I had to work hard to put myself at school. I studied visual design and I specialized myself in graphic design later. I always loved drawing.

And I have always been passionate about nature and always been concerned about global warming. I was in high school, and I was the first one to talk about global warming around me. I was making speeches in front of the classroom. I was not so popular, I mean, sometimes people were annoyed because I was talking about it all the time. I am no scientist, but it doesn't matter because taking care of our home, our planet, is the matter of everybody.

If a work of art would be able to change the face of our world, it would be more than a masterpiece, it would write history. — Mad Lips 21

In 2019, my father died from leukemia. And left me with the huge responsibility of taking care of my mother who is disable. My father was my best friend. And when he died, I couldn't speak to anybody for almost 6 months. I fell into a major depression, and soon my depression became a burnout. When my father died, 6 months later the pandemic started and my husband left me. I had to mourn my father, my marriage, and the fact that I do not have a family of my own. I was crushed and I had to rebuild myself. It was hard, and so many times I thought to myself that it would be easy just to give up. But I couldn't because my mother needed me. And all of this affected my health also.

So I took the time to prioritize what was the most important thing in life. And I realized it was me! At that time I realized that I kind of lost myself in the way and I had to get to know myself again in order to reconnect with who I was before all of this. I could write a book of all the things I had to overcome, but to resume it felt like the sky was falling on me.

So one day, I was looking at videos on TikTok and I found out about NFTs, and for me that was like discovering a new world. And for the first time in a long time I felt like I could take over and conquer new horizons. So I started to draw while learning about NFTs and also my inner world started to reflect on my drawings, and it was like learning about me also.

At first, I did not know what would be the project that would be created, I just knew that it would be about global warming. So by building my website, I realized I was building a community for everybody on earth. My project is not just to bring good conscience to those who would buy my NFTs, but it is also to build a community to bring changes. So the NFTs I’m creating will bring a lot of people together to bring awareness in this society and find solutions to help everyone to collectively change our behaviour and help mother earth that is dying.

I don’t know if you are familiar with MBTI personality types. Well, I’m an INFJ, and INFJs are the rarest personality type on earth. But I learned so much about myself by discovering my type of personality, and I think it’s something that really helped me as an artist and in my journey. So according to the definition of an INFJ we are capable of changing the world. We are capable to inspire others, and I felt like by building my project, I finally found my purpose in life.

I know it will be hard to bring a community together first, find solutions and all together take actions to help mother earth and bring changes in the way we consume as fast as possible to help the next generation. But I see it has a challenge and I know that all together we can succeed.

If you are reading this, you are probably interested in NFTs. But if you care about our home, if you see mankind has a big family like I do, if you like nature, you are welcome to join this community. If you have ideas of what should be done in your area, please talk about it with us and around you. We can make this possible.

So if you want to be part of this community and be part of this new movement, I suggest you follow us on every platform and start to ask yourself, do I do enough for my planet? And try to learn how you can help to make this community a success. Because you and I together we can build the reality of tomorrow.
