Long Time No Pear

It’s been forever! Drawing has taken a backseat to textiles as I continue in my master’s degree in textile design. But pears are never far from my mind! Here is a pear I knit with wire for a class last spring:

If you’re curious to see more of my textile (knitting), I have a portfolio online here: https://www.behance.net/DrewMcKevitt

Mood Boards

I’m in a textile design graduate program right now, and every project requires a mood board…  (click to enlarge)

By the way, I started a website for my textile stuff (it’s mostly all knitting, but there are a few mood boards!) Here’s the link: drewmckevitt.wordpress.com

Misery Day Together

A while ago I posted Misery Day:

I just wanted to make it clear that Misery Day can be enjoyed with others!

Sometimes things that are terrifying at first can turn out to be wonderful. (Just don’t let go.)

Academic Pear: Grad School

Hello! I haven’t posting for a while (a long while) mostly because so many changes have been happening outside of the pear world. I moved in the summer, then moved AGAIN in the fall to start grad school for Textile Design (specializing in knit). So far the semester has been good, and now that I finally feel a bit settled, I decided to start drawing pears again! Hopefully I’ll post them regularly. I’ll probably also post some of my school projects too!

Happy Holidays!

Sorry I haven’t posted in a while. I was working on a holiday comic for this year, but I haven’t finished it in time. So instead, I’m just going to post some of my favorite comics from past years. (Hope you don’t mind). Merry Christmas everyone! Thank you all for reading my little comic about a grumpy pear. I hope you all have a pleasant holiday!

Poirot Pear Revisited

I promise to post a new comic next week. Or at least I promise to try…

In the meantime, here are some photos of a knitted Poirot pear I made for a reader a few months back:

Poirot is one of my favorite characters. His attitude is very pearish to me (not just his name)!

If you like the knit pears, I have two angry ones in my Etsy shop that will only be available until December 1st. Here’s the link!

Pears Come in All Shapes and Sizes

pears come in all shapes and sizes

I recently started a shop on Society6, and this comic/illustration is available as a print or a t-shirt either with or without the caption. They even have baby onesies (which I think are a really cute). I kept seeing artists I admire that I have stuff on Society6, so I decided to try it.

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:

7-11 pm

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.

And the Winners Are…

i win with border

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!

Well Lotioned Pear – Part 2

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.
