Hey everyone ! I'm giving this another shot !!!! Here is your chance to get a Lucky Cat. I will only be making 100 of this cat in his true color of Tiffany Blue !!!!! I also want to keep it simple. Two rewards. Pin and Toy with a bunch of extras for each. I am Vincent Scala. I have been a professional illustrator for the past 14 years. I have my own short on the Nickelodeon Animated Shorts Facebook Page - "Dia De Los Tacos". (There may be a cat who looks familiar !!!)
If you’re not familiar with my work I’m sure you have seen some of the work I have created for clients. I was a designer on Dora the Explorer, Team Umi Zumi as well as many other Nickelodeon shows.. I have also animated music videos for Steve Aoki, Flux Pavilion and Rome of Sublime with Rome.
I have also shown my work in many galleries in the NYC area. That’s actually where this journey began. Please feel free to check out my website: www.vincentscala.com Last year I had the pleasure of creating a vinyl toy based off of one of my illustrations. It was very successful and I gained a ton of fans globally ! I have sooo many more characters that I want to share with the world. Here is my chance to share my next creation. Lucky Cat !
Who is Lucky Cat?
Lucky Cat is by far my most obsessive drawing to date. He lands on almost every page of my sketchbook. With his half missing arm and missing eye there, he makes you wonder how can he be so lucky? He is branded with the lucky 13 on his belly to guide him through his troubles ! There is something very cute about him, but also an air of mystery to his personality as well as how he lost his arm and eye ! We will all know soon enough in the mini- comic included with the vinyl toy. I think he has a mischievous side !!
Bigger is Better!
I wanted to go bigger. Why not !!! Here is a direct comparison with the Mickey Monster and Lucky Cat is much bulkier and larger than Mickey Monster. I also tried my best to keep the cost down so that he could be shared with as many people as possible.
$50 for a toy, what are you nuts !!!!
Yes !!!! Very !!!! Compared to most Japanese toys this is cheap, especially for his size. I will also be creating a cool box to package him in. Speaking of package......
Be Part of the Toy
I want everyone here to be a part of the toy. Every person who has sponsored the vinyl reward will be part of the package. I will be including all of the names on the box in a fun way.
New Rewards !!!!
Decided to add a few more rewards !!! A super special Clear Blue Vinyl version of Lucky Cat - Only 13 will be made !! As well as a set of all of my pins !!!!
New Colors Added
There are now 2 more colorways !!! Clear Red Glitter and Solid Black !!!
I wanted to add something really special as a stretch goal. This may be a challenge but if we can reach $5500 than I will have an additional 3inch toy of the skeleton car added to all toy backers orders !!!!
Risks and challenges
Unfortunately creating a toy is not so easy, and the cost of the mold is very pricey. I wanted to create a high quality toy that I know you will all love ! Having a large community of people purchase it early not only gets them a great deal, it helps the work get shared. Not only would I be getting to have one of my characters created as a vinyl toy, but also I would be able to share it with the world.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
