When it’s this hot all you can do is sit and sweat and glare and be angry.
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).
(From the comic / zine Work-a-Day Pear)
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!

This one appears in Pears of History, Myth, and Legend
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Two posts in one day… sheesh. But I just took these pictures this afternoon, and I wanted to post them! The little polymer pear is sitting in a very spring-like arrangement of Sedum, Eyelash Begonia, and Pilea. The other plants are a struggling Shamrock and Maidenhair Fern.
If you like the pear, you can check out some other little photo shoots etc.
I also wanted to let you all know that I’ll be participating in a vernissage / gallery exhibit / art show this Friday in Montreal. The evening will feature local artists from the H4C postal code (St. Henri neighborhood). I already know that there’s going to be a TON of different artists showing work at the event, so I suspect this is going to be a lot of fun!
If you’re in Montreal, please stop by, the address is:
999 du College, #44

Although when I originally started Angry Pear I was very adamant about NEVER drawing anything but pears, I have since decided that some things (irritations and annoyances mostly) just can’t be expressed with pears. Or, I guess I should say, they cannot be expressed clearly enough with pears. So I have decided to occasionally post a comic or drawing that isn’t a pear.
Wearing glasses in the winter is annoying.
Another one from Work-a-Day Pear!
This is an older comic that I redid for the Work-A-Day Pear comic.
A few months ago, Esther, a very nice woman in Europe (probably the Netherlands given the Dutch description), contacted me about doing this custom drawing (a doctor pear tending to a sick blueberry). She wanted to give the picture to her friend as a gift for finishing medical school. I LOVED the project because their nicknames for each other are pear and blueberry– very cute! Esther ended up putting the image on a bag for her friend, and I think it looks amazing!
I am always interested in making custom drawings / prints. If you’re interested, you can contact me through Etsy or email me at drew[at]angriestpear[dot]com.
I’ll be selling Angry Pear comics and other things from my etsy shop tomorrow at the Market Cooperative. This is my second time at this craft fair, and if last time is any indication, there’s going to be TONS of amazing artisans there.
In addition to comics, I’ve made a few St. Valentine themed owls just for the fair:
(the little hearts are felted pins, which I might sell too).
And if cutesy Valentine’s aren’t your thing, there’s always this very Angry Pear card:
If you’re in Montreal, I hope to see you there!
