About

This is not the hand-signed giclee, but is an 11x17 limited printing of the sketch Jim made for this project and will carry a Kickstarter-specific code to identify it as part of this project.Help us reach $250K and every backer (excluding the $1 reward level) will receive.

At HEX, we are all about creativity and expression. In fact, our motto is "Equip The Creators." We are always looking to make people's lives better by focusing attention on often overlooked details or needs. 

We felt this was the case for the comic and art industry.

Having a legendary artist like Jim Lee in your contact list helps alot. As Jim explained his difficulties in traveling with his supplies, we all realized there was a need here. 

So we worked together to create the ultimate travel backpack for artists, The HEX x Jim Lee Artist Backpack...

 Then, as we were working with Jim, we realized that not only do the artists need a better backpack solution, but so do their fans! Comic conventions have become immensely popular events where collectors can gather to follow their favorite characters and artists. They buy, sell and collect comic books, posters, autographs, etc etc. Comic books are not kids business anymore as many of these books reach values well into six-figure territory. But there was no way to safely transport them.

So we also made The HEX x Jim Lee Comic Collector Backpack...

 *THIS FEATURE ONLY ON LIMITED EDITION BAG

 This is why we believe these products are so revolutionary and so needed. We hope you will help us get these products out in the market in a big way.

 MODEL HEIGHT 5'10"


NEW PRODUCT AVAILABLE

In response to popular demand, we have made the HEX x Jim Lee 11x17 Portfolio available as a stand-alone item!!!  This portfolio is the same portfolio that comes in the Artist Backpack (including the custom Jim Lee Batman sketch lining) , with the one exception that it is in a SOLID BLACK colorway.  YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ADD THIS ITEM ONTO YOUR ORDER AT THE END OF THE CAMPAIGN, AND IT WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE TO BACKERS OF THE CAMPAIGN so pease keep this in mind :)

*Note that while technically you can squeeze this portfolio into the Collector Backpack, it is not ideal, nor designed for that functionality.

ABOUT HEX:

Music originally brought founders Dan Maravilla and Trent Valladares together as teenagers living in Southern California. Musicians and band-mates they perfected their craft working their way up the local club scene in Los Angeles. Their music style was eclectic - always seeking to create what was not the norm. Their creativity did not stop with sound, however. Both talented visual artists, they would outfit concerts into total sensory experiences by creating and performing original music as well as transforming prestigious concert venues with all-encompassing art installations - to provide a total experience. Clothing and fashion were also on the boys’ radar, often repurposing and making their own clothing and accessories.  

After years in the music and art scene, they decided to launch a small, startup, family fashion business. Early collections gained attention from many world-renowned brands and they started designing and manufacturing for many established labels. This provided valuable opportunities to see inside many great companies and eventually give them the knowledge to be able to launch their own successful brand. 

Enter HEX.  HEX is a creative community that draws from Dan and Trent's years of experience in fashion, music, and art and channels it to equip the next generation of creators through products that empower everyone to explore the outer limits of their potential. Everything HEX does is built on the foundation of its 3 core values of Innovation, Authenticity, and Community.
