Description

Proceeds from this sale will benefit Happiness Camping, a summer camp for children with cancer and their siblings.

An homage to King Saladeen’s best friend JP, ‘JP Money Bear’ is meant to encourage creativity and individuality in its collectors. Before passing away from cancer in 2013, JP never failed to inspire and support Saladeen’s artistic talents, and the artist hopes to convey this motivation to others through this work. The bear itself has paint-spattered fur and is wearing a jacket which features his grandmother’s birthday, who also died of cancer.
