Pear Calendar!

il_fullxfull.543858003_haho

I just finished working on a calendar for 2014! I hope not everyone already has a calendar for next year. I’m hoping that there are a least some people, who like me, are not organized or ready to get calendars in December.

This “Pears of the World” calendar has a different pear type for each month and a short write-up to along with it. It measures 5.5″ x 8″ and is printed on heavy card stock.  It’s available in my Etsy shop. You can read all the descriptions of the pear types for each month are there too.

I started this project pretty late in the year, but I got so involved with researching different kinds of pears that it went pretty quickly. I had so much fun looking at different pears (there are so many sweet sweet varieties) and imagining their pearsonalities!

I’m including the binder clip, so it can be hung on wall:

Yes, pears wear belts. And they especially need new ones after all the nibbles on Christmas!

Hope you all had a nice holiday!

Holiday Shopping with Angry Pear!

the art of giving full

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:

Mini-notebooks made from recycled paper. There are six covers to choose from (“enemy list” is my favorite, obviously):

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.

Expozine 2013!

expozine 2013

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.

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.

November 16 and 17, 12-6pm

5035 Saint-Dominique, Montréal, Québec

For a list of vendors and more details, visit Expozine’s website!

Distroboto and Angry Pear!

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.

distrobotomachineweb-739x1024

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.

Nospearatu and Other Spooky Pears

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.

Technical Difficulties

technical difficulties

Last week my computer died, and I had to erase everything on it and reinstall the operating system. As a result, I lost the pre-prepared (prePEARed?) pears I had planned to post in the next week or so. So, I’ll be taking a hiatus from posting as I get all this together.
