Going Green Brings in the Green for This Illustrator-Author!

The Scrapkins

UPennThe deals keep coming for illustrator-author Brian Yanish (C'95, Mask and Wig, Friars) and his eco-friendly kids character property, The Scrap Kins.

If you recall from my previous posts , Brian created The Scrap Kins from his childhood drawings! The Scrap Kins are a group of creatures that live in a recycling center and build a world out of the things people discard. The Scrap Kins mission is to foster eco-awareness, promote recycling and encourage kids to use their imagination. The Scrap Kin's Do-It-Yourself resourcefulness empowers children to create and make a difference in their environment. (Ages 3-7)

He reportedly signing 3 new licensing deals with manufacturers (Aljan Corp, Some Publishing, and Lafayette Puzzle Company) to produce Scrap Kins back to school recycled paper stationery, sticker calendars, and puzzles. Keep an eye out for Scrap Kins kids products in stores in 2009!

(You can meet the characters, view our Green Tips, download desktop art & craft projects and order Scrap Kins organic tees and onesies.)
