Beasties of the Kingdom are a Must See at 17th Annual Downtown Delray Beach Craft Festival

The 17th Annual Delray Beach Craft Festival goers will have a lot of artists to see.  John Raya’s creations, “Beasties of the Kingdom” promise to amuse and please all ages.  Previously sharing his creative genius at Disneyland and Universal Studios, John eventually struck out on his own.  Choosing a “Beastie” is probably the most difficult decision you’ll have to make!  Everything is handmade in the USA ( including the paint as well as boxes).  The Rickie Report shares the details of the full event and a glimpse of some “Beasties”.

Meet John Raya

and

his Beasties of the Kingdom

 

 

Throughout his life, John Raya’s two passions have been sculpting and cartooning. As a child, John spent long hours mastering the great works … from the “Sunday funnies”, his favorite comic books, or the all-time classic “Mad Magazine.” Any piece of paper was a potential sketch pad for John to practice drawing his childhood heroes and heroines. He shares, ” I mastered anatomy and life drawing skills by the age of ten through long hours laboring over the finer points of proportion and structure … by sketching the likes of “Wonder Woman” .”

 

"Palm Beach Paulie" by John Raya

“Palm Beach Paulie” by John Raya

 

John’s talents soon found their way to Universal Studios in California where he worked summers as a cartoonist between stints at Cal State at Fullerton where he studied the “3D’s”–dating, dancing, and design. With a knack for quick-sketch caricature, John’s art drew him to Disneyland where he would sometimes sketch up to 400 people in a single day. John eventually found his way to Walt Disney World® in Florida, where as an art director, he was responsible for artists operations in the theme park.

 

 

"ZsaZsaZebra" by John Raya

“ZsaZsaZebra” by John Raya

 

In 1975, mustering his entrepreneurial spirit and with his accumulated professional experience (and a prayer), John embarked on his own business venture. Developing the “Beasties of the Kingdom” collection along the way, John fulfilled a lifelong dream and created a vehicle for his personal style and sense of humor. Starting with just six designs in his collection, John soon directed his talents to creating new and better “Beasties” to keep up with the ever-growing demand. Since then, John has increased his collection to include over sixty new “Beasties of the Kingdom” that has attracted a global family of collectors.
