T’other week we teased that the next JP The Money Bear was incoming from King Saladeen (read HERE), well today we got the full reveal of Dear Summer the second colourway of JP plus the release details, which you can check out below!
Continuing to pay homage to his late & great friend John “JP” Thompson who passed away from brain cancer in 2013, the “Dear Summer” collectible will come in a new Summer/Fall colourway and a new 18-inch size selection. This is an additional 7.5-inches taller than the original Money Bear! They say go big, or go home so King Saladeen went BIG!! H U G E ! !
JP was my number one motivator and forced me to take my passion for art seriously. He continuously told me I was a king even when I thought I wasn’t. This is not a toy it’s a piece of my life and the reason why I create and motivate others to be great. JP will live on through my art foreverKing Saladeen
