Oh, hello there! This fabulous creature is just one of the new pieces that Shing Yin Khor will be bringing to her solo show “A Nervous Harbour” at Stranger Factory.
“A Nervous Harbour” is Shing’s first solo show, and it’s all about twitchy little aquatic critters. The exhibition runs September 6 – 29, with an opening reception taking place on Friday, September 6 from 6-9pm.
If you’re in or near Albuquerque, you should definitely check it out. This is going to be such a great show!! P.S. Tomorrow (August 6) is Shing’s birthday! Go wish her a happy birthday on Twitter or Facebook.
Since I’m not able to attend SDCC this year, I think you should have fun on my behalf! As soon as you get there, head to Small Press Pavilion and find Shing Yin Khor/Sawdust Press at Table P-06. Look at all of this amazingness she’ll have!
But wait… there’s more! Follow Shing on Tumblr to see everything she’s bringing to Comic-Con!
P.S. These guys are still available at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland!
Shing Yin Khor & Leslie Levings “Antlered Forestbeast” $1,000 (set)
The upcoming art corner at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland features two of my favorite artists in the whole world. Inspired by early cabinets of curiosities and the mustiest corners of old museums, critter curators and sculptors Leslie Levings and Shing Yin Khor unveil a collection of strange and wonderful beady eyed things in The Corner Museum of Dubious Beasts.
These are just a few of the critters that will be in their two-person show. I’m also excited that Leslie and Shing will have a collaborative piece in the Supah Mashup Art Party! Both shows open on Saturday, May 11 with a reception from 6-10pm. Hope to see you there!
Oh, fattybugs! Oh, fattybugs! So round and plump and lovely! These wonderful fattybugs are some of the oddly adorable critters that you’ll find at Designer Con 2012. Just look for Sawdust Bear at booth 209. These fattybugs come with a wood base and will be around $40. There will also be some variants in the $30 range.
The Sawdust Bear booth will also have original watercolours in the $30-50 range. Even if you’re not into chunky monsters, you’ll be able to find something amazing there. Artist Shing Yin Khor is one of the kindest people I’ve ever met, so do yourself a favor and drop by her booth!
