Here’s another look at a few of Shing Yin Khor’s painting for Supahcute Science Fair. She shared additional information about these pieces:
Fairybugs! These paintings are about 3.5”x4.5”, so they’re pretty teeny! I wanted to paint a couple small and affordable things for the Supahcute Science Fair show. I finished 7 paintings, and they’re all under $100.
I had no idea that the paintings are so tiny! I’m a sucker for all things small and cute.
Supahcute Science Fair opens at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland on Saturday, March 8 (6-10pm). Hope you guys can join us the opening reception! If you’ve already signed up for my email list, you’ll automatically receive the online preview link before the show opens.
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)
This forest beast by Leslie Levings and Shing Yin Khor is too spectacular for words. In addition to preparing for The Corner Museum of Dubious Beasts, Leslie and Shing collaborated on this sleepy forest beast and fatty friends for Supah Mashup Art Party.
Leslie sculpted the big guy with its antlers and also painted the antlers. Shing added the fattybugs and mushrooms and provided the overall paint job. I love how this piece combines both of their styles so seamlessly.
The Forest Beast will be available at Supah Mashup Art Party on May 11. LA friends, don’t miss the dual opening receptions on May 11 (6-10pm)!!

Meet Herbert and Harold! Herbert (grumpy head) and Harold (happy head) are/is a distant relative of the Loch Ness Monster and a resident of the LA River. Be careful if you have plumbing issues: he is likely to emerge and eat your chips or record bad reality TV on your DVR.
Herbert and Harold is/are the result of a first-time collaboration between Vanessa Ramirez and Shing Yin Khor. Both artists will be attending the opening reception of Supah Mashup Art Party and The Corner Museum of Dubious Beasts. Hope to see you there at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland on Saturday, May 11!

In addition to preparing for The Corner Museum of Dubious Beasts, Leslie Levings and Shing Yin Khor are working on this wonderful piece for Supah Mashup Art Party. Leslie sculpted the big guy with antlers, and Shing is painting it and adding some fatty friends and cute mushrooms.
Can’t wait to see the finished piece! Supah Mashup Art Party – A Celebration of Cute Collaborative Art – opens at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland on Saturday, May 11 with an opening reception from 6-10 pm. Make sure you sign up for the Art Gallery Preview List.
Opening on the same night as Supah Mashup Art Party will be The Corner Museum of Dubious Beasts – a two-person show featuring critter curators and sculptors Leslie Levings and Shing Yin Khor. Here are some ‘eagle rock larms’ who will be appearing at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland on May 11. Shing explains, “Eagle Rock is not known for its rocks. it’s just where Leanna Lin’s Wonderland is located….which is where these guys are going.” Get it? Good.
This is just one of the fattybugs who would love to be acquainted with you.
Leslie has been working on this painting for Dubious Beasts. Follow her progress on her Tumblr.
Both Leslie and Shing will be at the opening reception, so we hope you can join us! Sign up for the Art Gallery Preview List here, and be sure to check the “special sneak peek” box before subscribing.
Leslie Levings and Shing Yin Khor are busy creating monsters for The Corner Museum of Dubious Beasts. The show opens at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland on May 11, and it’s going to be epic!
The Corner Museum of Dubious Beasts opens the same evening as Supah Mashup Art Party, and Leslie and Shing will have a collaborative piece for Supah Mashup. It’s not too early to rsvp on Facebook!
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!
