Actress Lindsay Lohan dives into the NFT sphere with a Canine Cartel collaboration. Her debut non-fungible token is definitely memorable – but is that a good thing?
Lindsay Lohan’s NFT debut: an aesthetic fail?
Lindsay Lohan ended last month by proudly announcing her debut NFT collaboration with Canine Cartel, a collection of 10,000 furry collectibles. Contrary to Hollywood star’s excitement, though, fans of the collectibles were disappointed to say the least.
The NFT reveals what appears to be a strange combination between a classic furry and Lindsay Lohan herself. The character has Lohan’s red locks and body shape, along with some of the facial features of a furry. In essence, the creation seems humanized to extremes, defying the unwritten rules of Canine Cartel NFTs, design-wise.
The launch received a surprisingly large amount of negative reviews. Some collectors argued about the creature’s facial features. Meanwhile, Furry art illustrator @CreatureWife pointed out that the NFT is missing an essential aspect:
“Where are the ears? What kinda furry doesn’t draw ears? That’s throwing me, that’s wrong,” she wrote.
Lindsay Lohan’s take on non-fungible tokens
In summary, furries were less than excited about the gossip star’s collaboration. This artistic fail is even more surprising, given that Lindsay Lohan is fairly familiar with the NFT market.
In fact, the actress spotted the industry’s potential long before this August all-time high trading reports. During an interview taken back in March, she revealed her interest in NFTs:
“It’s only a matter of time ’till everyone in Holywood and beyond gets involved. Maybe we will see a tokenization of movies, and of how artists are paid for their films, music and art. I see a future where crypto, NFT and blockchain will be the norm, rather than the exception,” she said.
