About this project
You are looking at the artist concept sketch for the Krampus Lid.
New $60,000 stretch goal!
All steins will be upgraded to a special Krampus Lid at no extra cost. The Special Krampus Lid is a 3D sculpt designed by Mitch O'Connell. This awesome upgrade will be cast in metal to stand up to the extreme use of an average beer drinker. And did I say " This is a free upgrade ! " YEAH !
New $85,000 stretch goal!
We have one last Stretch Goal........ Krampus Lid ULTRA ! Not only will a metal sculpture of Krampus be on top of the base but now the base itself will be tricked out. Mitch O'Connell has designed the base to included bits and pieces of his art from the stein. A separate mold has to be made for this and at the soaring heights that we have risen (over $80,000) we can afford to have this done. The Krampus Lid ULTRA Stretch Goal is $85,000. We can do this ! Soon the Krampus Stein Kickstarter Project will be history. You will not be able to get any once this happens, within the next few days is the last chance to own a 2015 Krampus Stein.
A new era of mugs by Munk Stein is about to arrive with your help. The first is Krampus Stein with an extremely detailed relief rendition of Mitch O'Connell's Fantastic Krampus Print. Our first beer stein, in hopefully a continuing line of steins, comes in 2 Styles, Painted Style and Raw Style. Krampus Stein is 9 3/4 inches tall and holds 30 ounces of your favorite beer. The fitted lid helps keep out unwanted pests and debris, a plus for any beer lover. Help an old art form stay alive with new and current art by supporting this project.
Munk Stein is an off shoot from the parent company Munktiki which has been making tiki mugs and ceramic oddities since 2000. Their work has appeared at galleries, bars, shops and in the hands of private collectors though out the world. You can visit Munktiki's online shop at www.munktiki.com
Mitch O'Connell has illustrated for every major publication you can think of, has had his art exhibited in galleries and museums around the world and his imagery is merchandised up the rear. His love of tattoos, especially traditional American flash, is apparent in his 3 sets of sold-out tattoo flash, "Stewed Screwed and Tattooed," "Done While Drunk," and "From the Bottom of the Barrel." Many of the designs were collected in the bestselling Last Gasp book, "Mitch O'Connell Tattoos," now in it's 5th printing. Those designs were also brought to life by thousands of talented tattooists on thousands of satisfied customers. He curated shows at Chicago's "Tattoo Factory Gallery" for two years, including the famous "Tura! Tura! Tura!" exhibit, a tribute to Tura Satana. Most recently he curated "Ghoul Power!" a huge artistic tribute to Detroit's very own beloved tv horror host, The Ghoul. He has judged shows at Northeastern Illinois University and participated in their "Inked: Tattoo Imagery In Contemporary Culture" exhibition. He also was a guest speaker and contributing artist at the Baltimore Museum of Fine Arts, "Baltimore Ink: Patterns On Bodies" exhibition.
Currently he is hard(ish) at work on his 4th set of flash and his second book of tattoo designs.
