Characters

Panda is a timid, cheeky little bear who loves to eat and dream, she’s positive and creative, forgiving and well tempered… Unless someone touches her food, and be careful, she can be veeeery sneaky.

Polar Bear is a big, grumpy, cynical bear who’s not afraid to speak his mind, he can be quite geeky and sometimes rude, but deep down he is kind and as soft as a marshmallow, in short, he meant well…

What’s this about?

A Comic Deditated to Life and Relationship

Panda and Polar Bear is a fuzzy little comic about a quirky cross-racial silly bear couple, who came from different parts of the world but somehow found each other and fell in love, they cheekily poke and cope with each other with their cute and grumpy manner. It’s about love overcoming differences and prejudice, and by being yourself you accept others’ true self too.

By creating two bears with relatable stories, we also hope to raise the awareness for their vulnerable and endangered situation as species. As well as the medium we used in the making of our early drawings, western tools and eastern ink symbolising the backgrounds of two characters.

Responsible Sourcing

Panda and Polar Bear care about the planet, our early drawings are all done on reused papers, all editing printouts are recycled, and the boxes and packaging we ship stuff from our studio are almost always reused, we provide print-on-demand products so we produce just enough for what is needed.
