About

I've been living / working in Philadelphia, PA (originally from upstate NY) as a freelance artist since 2008.  I started the RAP KINGS illustrated series in 2017 after deciding to put my love for art, hip-hop music and pop culture to good use.  Since then, I have gained a following and grown the series into something that I'm sincerely proud of.  For years I have been waiting for the right moment to release the first RAP KINGS toy and finally that time is here.

I plan on producing 100 resin units, standing at 10" tall nestled safely in custom RAP KINGS packaging.  On the back of the boombox you'll notice some influential hip-hop role models as stickers...very similar to the stickers I had on my boombox as a kid!

As the campaign carries out, I'll be continuing to work on the toy itself including the 3D- sculpt (being done by Concrete Jungle also known as @Scartoccio on Instagram), the packaging design / inserts and of course, a much needed name.  All of which I'll be uploading to the campaign's feed so that you will get updates at every step of the process.  It is possible, but unlikely that the toys will be ready by Christmas / the holiday season but I'll be working my tail off to make sure they are delivered in a timely fashion.

Be sure to follow me on social media as well as check back in here frequently for important updates.  Also feel free to ask any questions you may have about the toy, the expected delivery date and so on.

Risks and challenges

I have wanted to make a toy for many years now. I'm a very nostalgic person and heavily influenced artistically by pop culture so it's only fitting that my first toy release pays tribute to the culture that I hold dearest to me, hip-hop. With that being said, it is very costly to produce, package and ship these toys. So your support is both greatly needed and appreciated!

If the toy campaign reaches complete funding (fingers crossed) I will be working tirelessly to have the toys fully produced and ready to ship in time for the 2019 holiday season. But realistically, most likely the early part of 2020. In the meantime I'll be preparing the work necessary to fill the rewards. This may take a bit longer as I'd like to make sure the quality of each fulfillment is top notch. But rest assured, each order will be shipped in a timely fashion. Please email or message me any concerns or questions you might have.

Thank you!
