It's been 5 years since Bodega was originally released by Bic Plastics, due to a suffering economy in 2010 the company didn't see it as a wise investment to produce more. I can't knock them for it, it's business, never personal, however as an artist... I had a vision for this figure that was never met. At the end of the day, nobody is going to nurture or invest in your ideas as much as you are. I stacked my chips, took my shit back and brought some art peeps along for the ride! It's truly an honor to bring one of my toys back to life and share the spot light with Tristan Eaton, TooFly, Pez, and Flying Fortress! A huge shout out to them for their patience and friendship!
Ok, enough of the intro, let's hop a flight to NYC for the Bodega relaunch, back where it all started at myplasticheart toy store/gallery! Toofly is one of those inspiring artist I have continuously crossed paths with... as kids in junior high, as art students at SVA, and at gallery shows as exhibitors. I call her a power house because she does it on all levels, business, graff, production, fashion and always seems to operate on all cylinders. The event flyer for the evening.
