This one is from a new print comic Work-A-Day Pear!
You certainly don’t want to be in that position this year! I’ve been making lots of new things and gradually adding them to my Angry Pear Etsy shop. A lot of them would make pear-fect stocking stuffers!
Here are a few of the new items available:
I’ve chosen a few images to turn into prints that I then paint with watercolor. I’m also up to doing custom work, so if you’ve seen something on this site that you’d like as a print or have an idea for something, just email me drew[at]angriestpear[dot]com.
New comics! (Pearishables, Pears of History, Myth and Legend, and Work-A-Day Pear). I love making these print comics. They’re all hand-bound and include some of my favorite comics from the past year:
Needle felted owl ornaments! Why didn’t I make pears? I don’t know.
And some old favorites:
Thanks for looking at my crafts!
Want a print of this one? I’ve added a hand-painted and matted print to my Etsy shop!
I’ve posted all of these before, but thought I’d post some Halloween pears from previous years. I redrew Nospearatu and Pear Sematary, however.

Yes, February was a long time ago, but I’m still going to post my favorite pears of that month, and ask you to vote on your favorites. Like I said with my last pear of the month, I’m hoping to turn the winners into a calendar!
Staying on Budget:
You can vote using the poll on the sidebar. You can also write in pears from February 2013. I’ll leave the poll up for about a week, and then announce the winner!
Thanks for voting!
I’ve decided to bring back Pear of the Month. For those of you who are new, this is where I pick out comics and illustrations from previous months and ask readers to vote for their favorites. I’m bringing it back because I want to make a calendar for 2014, and I feel that this will give me a good sense of what I should feature in the calendar.
I had intended to do this for 2013, but never got around to it. I ended up buying a “Bygone Days”-themed calendar from the discount bin at Cartes Carlton. Of course, if I get this one for 2014 together in time, I plan to make it available in my Etsy shop!
We’ll start with January 2013 (no sense going back any further). Here are the contestants!

Here’s how it works: I’ll leave the poll up on the sidebar for about a week. In that time, you can vote as often as you like for as many pears as you like (you can even write-in pears). I’ll announce the winner next week!
Thanks for voting!
Happy Canada Day!
I know I am enjoying the long weekend!
A few weeks ago, I posted this Peartographer. Here she / he is in action! And some pictures I took of this really cute pear.
Pears like needlepoint.
Introducing Angry Pear needlepoint canvases and kits!
This winter, I collaborated with Barbara Russell of Barbara Russell Needlepoint Designs to convert some of my pear drawings into needlepoint painted canvases. She picked six of my favorite illustrations. So exciting! Here are the ones she picked:
Pears like Wine:
Pear Salon Disaster:
Pears go well with Cheese:
The canvases have turned out beautifully! You can purchase the canvases (and kits with threads) from Barbara Russell’s website under the pear people collection. I used to do a lot of needlepoint when I was younger, and I can’t wait to try these!
I’ll post pictures after I’ve finished one of these. I just can’t figure out which one I want. Probably Pampeared.
Some other comics about pears shopping:
Dapper Pear Shopping Spree (I had forgotten about him)
Shopping Spree (I had forgotten about this one too. Makes me laugh)
Maybe you would like to shop for some pear stuff (pear-aphernalia)? Check out my Angry Pear Etsy shop! I make everything myself!
Inspired by this.

Angry Pear is doing a guest post over at Carl D’Agostino’s I Know I Made you Smile. Carl makes comics as well, so go check out the guest post and the rest of his blog!
Even pears get depressed. I know I certainly do, and it can be very hard to hoist myself out of a bad mood. Sometimes I don’t even know why I’m feeling down, but knowing why doesn’t always help either. Every year, for instance, I notice my mood goes a bit sour when the seasons change, yet I can’t seem to stop myself from feeling that way. I’ve found that the best was for me to get over feeling down is to force myself to do something I usually enjoy– seeing friends, knitting, taking a walk (although that’s harder with all this snow in Montreal!). It can be really difficult, but it often helps.
