Pear Varieties: Chojuro

chojuro 1 chojuro 2

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!

Happy Birthday Angry Pear!

birthday pear 15

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!

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:

Not Pear

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.

Dokter Peer / Doctor Pear

dokter peer 2dokter peer 1

 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.

Abbe Fetel Pear (Pear Varieties)

The Abbe Fetel or Abate Fetale was in the news earlier this month when Italian growers brought this pear to the States for a showing. This is also the pear I chose to make the month of April in the pear calendar.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I wasn’t going to post anything today, but then I took these pictures and decided I wanted to share them. These are the NEW versions of the knit pears (coming soon to my Etsy shop). They’re a little smaller, but I think I like them better.

The Market Cooperative

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).

Cards:

And if cutesy Valentine’s aren’t your thing, there’s always this very Angry Pear card:

And the Winners Are…

Thank you for participating in the Facebook / Twitter contest. I really appreciate all of your comments, and I honestly wish I could give everyone a comic or calendar. But that would be too expensive. So chosen at random, here are the two winners:

Anna Cull of In the Art Cave

Carla of Team Nugget

I used this list randomizer at random.org to randomly decide the winners. I only mention it because I think it’s neat!

In part 1 I said that there was no such thing as applying too much lotion this time of year. Maybe I was wrong about that…

This time of year, it seems you can never apply too much lotion.
