You know Guggimon, don't you? Maybe you've already noticed this strange cat called Janky in the item shop. But let me guess, you thought he was just some strange invention by an Epic Games designer? Well, you're wrong about that. In fact, Janky is a fictional character and has over 775k followers on Instagram. Let's take a deeper look at Janky.

Who is Janky?

Janky is a virtual influencer owned by Superplastic. Superplastic is the world's leader in animated celebrities, designer toys, and apparel. And the home of Janky and Guggimon.

Superplastic was founded by the artist and entrepreneur Paul Budnitz. While the legendary toy artist Huck Gee is responsible for the art and production. Superplastic sold millions of dollars worth of limited edition products in 2020 alone. They've worked with J Balvin, Gorillaz, Rico Nasty, Saint Jhn, Steve Aoki - and Fortnite, among others.
