When you were a kid, did you collect Beanie Babies? I never did, because they were invented when I was well into adulthood, but I still have a small collection of them because people have been giving them to me as gifts for over thirty years. Why, I have no idea. My point is that I have no ocassion to really think of Beanie Babies and their many spin-off plush friends unless I am attending a NY Now gift show, and then I enjoy spending a few minutes in the Ty booth checking out all their crazy new plushies that have huge, oversized  eyes like those paintings by this artist. They all look like they are on acid, which I find creepy. Of course I could not resist snapping a pic of this gigantic, round and very Pink Unicorn. Because, Pink Thing.
