In 2014, the Artist Collective paid out over $25,000 to hard working talented artists. To increase this number, this year they will produce 10 Artist Collective designs as part of their full mighty wallet line that is carried by retailers in over 60 countries. 

This is HUGE exposure for the artists, not to mention it is on the amazing mighty wallet which is seen daily through everyday interactions.

If you or someone you know would like to join Artist Collective it is simple to sign up, and once approved you can begin uploading your art immediately. 

Upload your designs before March 13th and you will be included in their next induction round! If you are not an artist you can still support independent art by shopping Artist Collective for your next mighty wallet.

Custom Lion 8" Munny by Jon-Paul Kaiser

Jon-Paul Kaiser's latest creation is a simple, yet exquisite, Lion as King Custom 8" Munny. Adorned in his Middle Age armor and the crown his ancestors wore, the Lion surveys his kingdom and subjects with his regal gaze. Jon-Paul is definitely a master of creating depth and texture with very little color. Photography was done by Justin Allfree.
