Amara by Otto Björnik
This is Amara by Otto Björnik a Filipino artist who has made a name for himself with his elaborately designed custom figures of dramatic elegance which has culminated in his first production figure this year – the very popular Mayari 3 inch Dunny produced by Kidrobot.
I am more than an illustrator. I am a storyteller. My tales are a rich mixture of precious childhood memories and fairy tales. I weave together lines to celebrate the beauty and elegance of nature and human form. And sprinkled within that tapestry are touches of whimsy that bring to mind the wonderment of childhood and play. It is my way of rekindling youth with a wink and infinite mirth.
An architect by training, I create works in pen and ink that are filled with intricate detail and influenced by stringent rules of design. The elements I choose often hold symbolic meaning, and I take care to piece them together like a jigsaw puzzle to tell an overall story.
I have drawn millions of lines as an artist and have told many stories, from my initial scenes of houses to the Yahoo! Purplescape campaign to more experimental pieces that have won international competitions and garnered gallery exhibitions. But I still feel that I have many more stories to tell and a million more lines to draw.
Amara is a hand painted custom 7 inch Munny vinyl figure created using acrylics and sculpted resin and will be available for display and purchase at myplasticheart booth #113 New York Comic Con.

Hunter Mako Edition By Brent Nolasco
Painter/Sculptor extraordinaire Brent Nolasco debuts his latest resin figure exclusively with myplasticheart. Meet Hunter :
“In my days of wandering in countless nomadic adventures, I came across different forms of life. Some have stuck in the landscapes of my mind, and other have been forgotten. Hunter was one that left an impression. I remember the first time I saw him while on one of my daily walks by the river. He rose out of the murky water at dusk and ate insects. He looked around cautiously so as not to be seen. Then he disappeared, back into the river, not to be seen again. From time to time I would lurk in the shadows to try a catch a glimpse of Hunter again, but my luck has run out. I didn’t ever see him again. The only images that I have of him live in my sketch book, until now.”
Standing at almost 8 inches tall, Hunter is cast in resin from an original sculpt by Brent Nolasco. Each one is indivudially hand painted by the artist himself. Hunter : Mako Edition is available in super limited quantities at the myplasticheart booth #113 throughout NYCC for $120.
