Badfroot is Jack Davidson, the artist and creator behind Dickers and SkullKids. This is the mom-and-pop shop of NFTs where the community milk is always lukewarm.
Who is Badfroot?
“Knock until your knuckles are white.”
Badfroot is the pseudonym of me, Jack Davidson, a former real estate broker turned full-time artist.
I grew up on the East End of Long Island, New York. In a past life I did sales and marketing, sold real estate in the Hamptons, and worked part-time in a group home for underprivileged/incarcerated youth. But when a close friend told me about NFTs, I saw my opportunity to finally become a full-time artist.
Something I learned as a real estate broker was to knock until my knuckles were white. I still live by this principle to this day and it’s my secret for making it in the competitive space of NFTs.
In 2021 I had gone by Dickers, SkullKids, and SkullVerse, but it was time for the brand to evolve just like my vision had. So I returned to my roots and unearthed the name that started it all, Badfroot. Like the youth at the group home, I was a scrappy kid graffitiing dicks, smoking weed, and getting into fights. Just stupid stuff.
I guess I’ve always been a Badfroot.
An empire built on a solid foundation of cartoon dicks.
A hand-drawn, 1/1 NFT experience that’s been a labor of love and deeply rooted in community. The SkullKids: Immortal holders are the OGs of the Badfroot universe.
SkullKids: Generations is a 9800 piece generative collection, bringing the SkullKid total to 10k. You can think of Generations as the younger siblings to the Immortals, both in style and function.
ETH our gas. Make ship go. ETH get bad. We run out. Need small gas to home. You buy pic of fren?
The NFT project that started it all.
The collection of collabs and things that go bump in the night.
Too many projects overpromise and under-deliver. So rather than a roadmap, we have a vision for the Badfroot universe that’s revealed over time.
Jack grew up on the East End of Long Island, New York. Before he became a full-time artist he did sales and marketing, sold real estate in the Hamptons, and worked part-time in a group home for underprivileged/incarcerated youth. When he learned about NFTs from one of his close friends he gave up his career in sales, dove headfirst into learning how the space worked, and eventually created SkullKids, the original 1/1s now known as SkullKids: Immortal. The generative, 10K SkullKids project is the next evolution of SkullKids and the Badfroot empire.
