sawdust bear makes things

Hi! I’m Shing Yin Khor, sometimes known as Sawdust Bear. I’m a sculptor, cartoonist and installation artist. You can find out more about my work at my portfolio

My current projects are:

  1. Tiny Adventure Journal, an travelogue comic.
  2. Center for Otherworld Science, a world filled with strange and anxious creatures that explores a world of bumbling science, human fallibility and heroic futility. It mostly takes the form of a series of sculptures, and a comic.
  3. Shop Class, a collection of comics that explain power tools and how to build things in a clear and approachable way.

I have recently completed:

  1. The Last Apothecary, an immersive and narrative haunted house installation that went to Burning Man 2016, as well as an gallery art show “sequel” at Stranger Factory, called Apothecary.

As a hobby, I visit and take pictures of abandoned spaces, and do experimental art things, largely around object-narratives.

My work can be purchased at Stranger Factory/Circus Posterus.

The best way to reach me is Twitter, but I am also on Instagram, Facebook and Tumblr.
