About this project

With all the turmoil and division over Trump becoming President, I wanted to create something that could bring some humor to people regardless of their political affiliation. I have had such GREAT feedback from family and friends and I now need your help to bring Humpty Trumpty to market!

Humpty Trumpty is a 5" vinyl cast figure which fires off Trumpism Insults at the person pushing him around. No matter how much you push him, he always ends up on his feet again...ok, he doesn't have feet, he just ends upright. 

The figure comes in two versions, Democrat (blue bottom), and Republican (red bottom). Democrats like Humpty Trumpty because they think he is going to have a great fall, or he's an egg head, or they just want to punch him...repeatedly. Republicans like him because he keeps bouncing back no matter how many times he's pushed, he's got toughness, or he's a good egg.

Humpty Trumpy was sculpted in clay, then molded using silicone rubber. The silicone is then removed from the clay model providing a negative from which a resin positive can be cast. The resin positive is then finished and detailed providing a finished sculpture. This sculpture is then scanned to provide a 3D model for vinyl molding.

Humpty Trumpty from Sculpt, Cast, to Finish. Next step is to 3D scan and refine model for to create a tool or mold for vynl casting.

Humpty Trumpty is balanced and weighted on the bottom to provide a toy which can be pushed and returns to center.

I have been working in 3D design for over 20 years and have extensive experience in taking ideas from concept to delivery for customers. While I generally produce artwork designs which are more custom one off, I am in the process of working with manufactures who specialize in vinyl and plastic toys and I need to raise money to create the molds and develop Humpty Trumpty so that I can take it to market.

I am committed to working hard to fulfill commitments made by my backers on Kickstarter. Your support is critical in me being able to turn this little dream into reality. THANK YOU!

Risks and challenges

I am the artist and hold all rights to the artwork. During the selection of a manufacturer I am sure there will be some back and forth until little Humpty Trumpty meets my high quality control standards which include how the figure balances, the audio module, finish, colors, and packaging. Right now the sculpture is 5" tall, actual height of the finished toy could be between 4"-5" depending on fabrication requirements.

Timeline and fulfillment can cause hiccups with this type of product as well. I am prepared to address any challenges straight on so they can be remedied and commit to keep my backers in the loop should any manufacturing or shipping delays occur.
