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):

Needle felted owl ornaments! Why didn’t I make pears? I don’t know.

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.

If you wanted to stop by this weekend to see Angry Pear, but couldn’t make it, I’ll be at the Market Cooperative fair this Thursday!

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.

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.

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:

Cleopeartra:

Pears like Wine:

Pampeared:

Pear Salon Disaster:

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.
