Sawdust Bear makes anxious monsters

Shing Yin Khor (aka Sawdust Bear) describes herself as ‘a sculptor and illustrator inspired by monsters, tentacles, mediocre science fiction movies, bikes, Dungeons and Dragons, and really adorable cats’. Some of her sculpted characters appear in Marlowe the Monster, a webcomic about a lumpy, multi-eyed monster who goes on bad dates and suffers from social anxiety, which he soothes by eating cake.

Marlowe is also the star of Khor’s first book, Marlowe the Monster Volume 1. Khor, a Californian who shows her work at San Diego ComicCon and other geeky venues, is currently creating a new line of rather anxious creatures called larms and scaleybugs which will be featured at a November show in Albuquerque, NM.
