This NYCC Exclusive FluffyFriend by Jordan Owen and Pock-it Palz invites you to open your heart to the the only plush toy that lets you serve up bite after loving bite. You might think just because BadBad loves to chomp everything he has no heart. Well, it’s time to show the world just how big (and plastic) BadBad’s heart really is!
These are super limited to only 10 pieces – so you know they won’t stick around for long. Each BadBad comes signed and numbered on his lil’ booty. Jordan will be at the myplasticheart booth #879 on Sunday at 12pm, if you’d like to come say ‘hello!’ BadBad will be available starting on Saturday at the mph booth for $50.

“The Saddest Song in the World”
We talked to artist Eun-Ha Paek about her pieces in the exhibition Bad Luck Club. Here’s what she had to say about her artwork for the show:
“I like the humor that can be found in melancholic situations so I tried to make some drawings about how one might feel faced with bad luck, which brought to mind superstition, melodrama, pessimism and optimism.”
“Unluck my Luck”
“‘The Saddest Song in the World’ is about the melodrama of the dreaded unlucky black cat who is feeling sad because everyone avoids him. The image of a cat playing the piano is kind of a cliche but it struck a chord. ‘Unluck my Luck’ is about superstition and the overwhelming burden of finding meaning in everything.”
“Good Luck, Poodle”
“‘Why Me?” and ‘Good Luck, Poodle’ explore how one might respond when the head looses it’s body. The poodle is still quite optimistic. The elephant is so pessimistic he doesn’t even notice that his body is gone. He has always wanted to be a pretty ribbon and wonders why he was born so bulbous and ugly. Or maybe it is the ribbon that is sad because he is not an elephant, it’s hard to tell for sure. These are also watercolor studies for some ceramic sculptures I’m making.”
When asked about the Brooklyn art scene and female presence in it, she said:
“The Brooklyn art scene is great, there are a lot of inspiring artists here! I’m happy to be in a show with my fellow female artists, there are a lot of unofficial boys’ clubs so it’s nice to have a girls’ club every once in a while. Thank you Aya for putting it together!”
You can come into myplasticheart to check out Eun-Ha’s work in Bad Luck Club until October 30th or have a look online at the show!

From creature creator Andrew Bell and mphlabs comes the 3rd colorway of 4.5″ resin figure Glop in a Box. The figure is limited to a small run of 8 pieces, which will be available at myplasticheart booth #879 starting Friday (10/14 ) for $100. This time Glop in a Box gets creepy in space…
“They told the public it was excellent engineering, but there was another reason those Mars rovers lasted so long… someone or something was fixing them. The cameras captured glimpses, an eye here, an arm there. A top secret mission was mounted to investigate, samples were acquired and sent back to NASA. Unfortunately as soon as they arrived, the entire project budget was slashed and the boxes of samples sat unattended in a dark closet somewhere in Florida… until today.”
