South African artist Daniella Attfield (aka Daniella Doodles) uses delicate line art to illustrate the earth’s natural beauty while emphasizing its fragility. For her first official MakersPlace drop, Daniella reimagines the cosmos as a dwelling place for earth’s wildlife in order to inspire the otherworldly awe that humans already should feel for the natural wonder around us. 

While billionaires set their sights — and substantial wallets — on conquering space, Daniella’s delicate neon line art asks us to reconsider such skewed priorities; rather than interstellar frontiers, we should probably set our minds to contemplating and preserving the natural world that we already occupy.

About Daniella Doodles

Celestial Living NFT Drop by Daniella Doodles

Daniella was born in Johannesburg in 1999 and moved with her family to Cape Town when she was two years old. Since a very young age, she has been interested in and has pursued drawing.

Daniella illustrated a book of poetry titled A Few Slivers of Light by Jess Robus. She has done many commission works for top Collectors in the NFT space. In 2021,  Daniella participated in the Future Art Exhibition Drop on Nifty Gateway in which she contributed two animated drawings. This Drop was a precursor to the Future Art Exhibition held in Sydney Australia.

Daniella discovered crypto art in 2018 and became a full-time crypto artist in 2020, selling to big-name collectors like Moderats, Basileus, Gabusch, Nanimalisimo, Mansamusa, ProfessorNfty, Batsoupyum, JavaJam, Kry Bharat, and Odinseye.

Any collector who bids and wins an auction item for 1.5 ETH or more will qualify for a 30-minute, 1-on-1 call with Daniella Doodles (facilitated by Makersplace) to learn more about her process and her art.

Galaxy of Dolphins

On a dark and quiet night,
While the world is deep in sleep. 
Two dolphins are wide awake,
Through clouds they dive and leap.

Penguins of the Cosmos

In the warmth of amber light
Three penguins glide and play,
Enjoying the dark of night
But looking forward to the day.

Milky Whale Shark

The clock has just struck midnight,
And a whale shark is swimming near
The clouds dark green as seaweed
And through stars bright and clear.

Celestial City

On an icy winter night 
Between the mountains and the snow
I watch the Northern Lights 
And find a place I’d love to go.
