A decade after the passing of John “JP” Thompson, Print Them All and King Saladeen are proud to announce the release of “Diamond in the Rough” – a 4-colour with black diamond dust screen print that pays homage to the world-renowned artist’s best friend.

The story of JP the MoneyBear was inspired by John who passed away from terminal brain cancer in November 2013. John was King Saladeen’s number one motivator to take his passion for art and build a legacy that will surpass the lifetime of the artist. The character is a piece of King Saladeen’s life and he hopes that it will motivate others to push the boundaries and status quo to be successful in their passions.

JP the MoneyBear is a representation of greatness.
“Diamond in the Rough” is an ode to JP, the battery in Saladeen’s back on the journey to self-belief. The dark tones with the fine diamond dust symbolises that struggle can breed success and even through the dark the light will continue to shine through.
