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:
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!
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!
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.
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:
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.
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.
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:
All you have to do is “like” or “follow” Angry Pear on Facebook OR Twitter and comment here why you like Angry Pear or which prize you would like. If you’ve already liked or followed Angry Pear (thank you!), just comment here anyway. The contest is open to anyone in the world.
By the end of the day next Sunday (January 26), I’ll pick two winners at random from the comments below.
Let’s take another look at the pearific prizes you can win!
The Pears of the World calendar features 12 different types of pears, along with a description for each month. I had a lot of fun putting this together.
New comics from 2013 include Pearishables, Pears of History, Myth and Legend, and Work-a-Day Pear. I also have few copies left of comics from past years.
