A few weeks ago we saw Shenly Yee the creator of Wackymons give her new “Shiek Happy Cones” their debut at STGCC and now Shenly is preparing for Taipei Toy Festival 2016 and Shiek Happy Cones have evolved into more flavours, or should we say colourways. The doo doo heads and oversize rubber lips will bring smiles to TTF collectors for sure.

Shenly Yee, a creator of Wackymons. Her journey of creating art began at this time as the process of drawing and painting became a form of spiritual healing during her medical treatment after she was diagnosed with hypothyroidism.
She always wanted her work to be overwhelmingly positive to reflect her views and remind people that a smile is a simple yet powerful action that can bring about huge positive change. In her art, parasites and monsters comprise of the majority of the works as they are influenced by her childhood experiences where she spent with the natural environment, their shapes and colors are just like a magical world.
She imagines a group of friendly monsters that live in this magical parasitic world, each with its own unique personality that reflects a part of herself and the best part of her memories. She will never forget to feed her monsters, to avoid them from hungry become a angry monsters just like herself! Through painting and sculpture, Shenly brings a mystical world to life and immerses her audience in her imagination.
