I really like and relate to pears :)
Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I was working on a holiday comic for this year, but I haven’t finished it in time. So instead, I’m just going to post some of my favorite comics from past years. (Hope you don’t mind). Merry Christmas everyone! Thank you all for reading my little comic about a grumpy pear. I hope you all have a pleasant holiday!
I promise to post a new comic next week. Or at least I promise to try…
In the meantime, here are some photos of a knitted Poirot pear I made for a reader a few months back:
Poirot is one of my favorite characters. His attitude is very pearish to me (not just his name)!
If you like the knit pears, I have two angry ones in my Etsy shop that will only be available until December 1st. Here’s the link!
(She is the face of August)
A few weeks ago, I played Risk for the first time in a long time. I would’ve won except I forgot about the Bering Straight! General Pear risked it all and lost…
For the pear in this last picture, I tried a new technique with the polymer clay. Before baking the pear, I did a transfer with paper and rubbing alcohol to make the face. I like this better.
This one is also on Society 6. I’ve made it available as a print as well as t-shirts and baby onesies!
This is one of my biggest peeves about living in a city, or specifically, living in Montreal. Bikes need to get off the sidewalk! I’m tired of having to jump out of the way! Stop at red lights and stay off the sideWALK. It’s not called the sideROLL. There are bike paths!
This comic is from Pearishables (available on Etsy).

This one is one of my favorites, because she’s so angry! I made a second watercolor version too. She’s also the month of May in the 2014 Pears of the World Calendar (which is also on sale for nearly 50% off). The thing about this calendar is that you can cut the calendar stuff at the bottom off and have prints after the months are finished!

It’s been four years since I started drawing pears! Things have come a long way since then (certainly in my ability to draw). I joined Etsy where I combined by love of knitting and crafting with my love of pears. I’ve also gotten to meet so many great people through the website and craft fairs. And most importantly, I’ve been able to vent all of my daily grievances through Angry Pear (as opposed to ONLY complaining to friends and family).
I want to thank you all for following these comics– it really means a lot to me.
For my own birthday, I wish I could have a cupcake that is as proportionally large to me as this cupcake is to the pears.
I used to sell these little birthday pears in my Etsy shop, but I’ve sold out and haven’t had a chance to make more. If you’re interested in them though, just send me a note!
I shared this comic on Twitter the other day, but realized I never posted it here. I’m still trying to figure Twitter out.
By the way, you can follow me on Twitter here!
My rabbit Beatrice and I will be doing a photo shoot later today (as is our Easter custom). If the pictures turn out well, I might post them here. In the meantime, here’s some picture’s from last year’s shoot!
