Many braved the cold and cancelled flights to attend the show in Chicago, and we are truly grateful. If you couldn’t attend the show (like me) we have a deluge of images from the opening thanks to Jason Spanier. Now everyone can share in the festivities, and don’t forget that there is still plenty of amazing work still available right here on Rotofugi’s site.
Shing Yin Khor is definitely overworked but she still brings her A game for art shows every time. For the Circus Posterus “Traveling Circus” at Rotofugi, she even pushed herself a tad more with this brilliant Clown Jelly curiosity cabinet.
Note all the different clown jelly sculpts and even a life cycle of polyps and medusa stages! The cabinet even includes articles from the sea and small science vials. This mount looks like something straight out of a zoology lab to me!
There is even a drawer!!! What is in that drawer, you ask? Well, you have to go to Rotofugi to see!
Circus Posterus’ “Traveling Circus” at Rotofugi opens February 15 through March 9th.
Trust us, we know how cold it has been in Chicago recently, and fortunately, Shing Yin Khor has prepared her scaleybugs for for the harsh weather.
Dressed up in blue and orange sweaters, the scaleybugs will be “snug as a bug in a rug” when Circus Posterus’ “Traveling Circus” takes over Rotofugi. Honestly, we can’t say the same about the collection of artists traveling to the show(Brandt, Kathie, Amanda, Chris and Travis)! They might be popsicles by the end of the weekend! But – they will thaw eventually and these adorable not so little bugs will be happy to come to your warm home after the show.
Circus Posterus’ “Traveling Circus” at Rotofugi opens February 15 and runs through March 9th. Exhibiting artists include Stan Manoukian, Tim Lee, Chris Ryniak, Amanda Louise Spayd, Joe Scarano, Stephan Webb, Shing Khor, Katie Carillo, Jen Musatto, Brandt Peters, Kathie Olivas, and Travis Louie.

Look like someone is grumpy they didn’t get enough presents for the holidays, or they just didn’t get enough cake! Regardless of why these fattybugs look like they are in permanent pout mode, we can all rejoice because Shing Yin Khor aka Sawdust Bear has her magnificent dioramas ready for Winter Salon III.
It looks like there will be two species of these round plump fattybugs: Shroom (above) and Bantayan Reef (below), on display for the show. Both are in their wood diorama displays with various accompanying relics from their natural habitats. Also, notice the Bantayan Reef fattybug is doing its best impression of Lil Bub for all the fans out there. What a wee little tongue!
Winter Salon III runs December 6th – 29th, with an opening reception on Friday, December 6th from 6 – 9 PM.
To keep us all on our toes, I have to sneak this in since I just saw it on Instagram. Here is what appears to be a work in progress collaboration between Shing and Tim Lee for the show. Holy snow balls batman, this is going to be monumental by the looks of it!
Thanks to Retrenders, we have interviews with three lovely ladies of Circus Posterus: Kathie Olivas, Shing Yin Khor, and Amanda Louise Spayd at Designer Con 2013.
Watch and you will learn some deep (not really) dark secrets from these three.
This year, joining us for the first time at the Circus Posterus booth during Designer Con is one of this year’s new additions to the artist roster, Shing Yin Khor. We have showed you some of the fabulous sculpts and pins that Shing will have at the con, but she will have plenty more (along with her bouncy attitude and bear death grip hugs).
We have compiled a nice slide show of the rest of Shing’s DCON bounty, including original paintings and more sculpts, and a list of her entire assortment.
More Designer Con news!!! Shing Yin Khor (Sawdust Bear) will have Single Horned Grave Beast one-offs available for $200 at the Circus Posterus booth #400. Mounted on wood, these uni-horned bugs are all expression filled and ready for the Pasadena Convention Center. Have those tentacles been grabbing powdered doughnuts?
This is a prime opportunity to pick up original art like these beasties by Shing and have a fun conversation. Shing is a delight to talk to and her vast knowledge of comics, art, bugs, and weird things knows no boundary.

We are keeping the Designer Con train rollin’ with news from Shing Yin Khor on some of the goods she is bringing to the con. Usually, Shing has her own booth not only with art and comics but an accoutrement of snacks and juiceboxes. This year, Shing joins the Circus Posterus crew in a citadel of carnage! Ok, there isn’t a citadel or carnage…just a big booth with a ton of great stuff.
Speaking of great stuff, Shing has a new Autumn Fattybug edition wobbling our way. This low low edition of only 5 chubby wubblies are all slightly different from one another, expressions, personalities, appetite, and all. Be ready because DCON is less than a month away and these bugs are getting restless!
