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!
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US ! Hope your celebrations are more like the top picture and don’t devolve into the second one!
Maybe the food was too caramelized. Haha.
Just a reminder that I’ll be selling pear comics, etc. today at the Market Cooperative. If you’re in Montreal, stop by!

I’ll be attending Expozine this weekend! And no, I will not be selling the privilege of patting my rabbit, Beatrice. Instead, I’ve got new comics, stationary, pins, magnets, and watercolors! I may even bring some giant knitted pears.
Here’s a sample of some of the comics and stationary I’ll be selling.

A bunch of giant pears ready to attack me:
Most of the new stuff is already listed in my Etsy shop, if you’re interested and aren’t in Montreal this weekend.
If you are in Montreal, you should definitely stop by Expozine. There are tons of small publishers, all selling really unique books and zines.

Distroboto is a project run by Archive Montreal that repurposes old cigarette machines into art vending machines. A few weeks ago, I made super mini versions of my Angry Pear comics for them! At $2 a pop, it’s a great way to learn about and support local artists.
They are currently stocked with three Angry Pear titles; Hipster Pear, Pears Gone Wild, and Pear and Rabbit. If you’re interested in full size versions of these titles, visit my Etsy shop. And, if you’re in Montreal, stop by some of their machine locations (listed on their website) and pick up a few of the goodies they’re selling.

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!
(You’ll have to click the link to see just what she put in the cookies)
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!
