General Pear

A few weeks ago, I played Risk for the first time in a long time. I would’ve won except I forgot about the Bering Straight! General Pear risked it all and lost…

For the pear in this last picture, I tried a new technique with the polymer clay. Before baking the pear, I did a transfer with paper and rubbing alcohol to make the face. I like this better.

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!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

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

999 du College, #44

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

These are some pictures of a little pear I made out of polymer. She is holding a four leaf clover. There are more pictures of little polymer figures I’ve made here.

And some of them are for sale in the Angry Pear Etsy shop!

The oxalis in the last two pictures is a clipping I took this past summer. It’s spent the whole winter in a vase and still blooming!

Happy Birthday Angry Pear!

It’s been two years since I started drawing pears! Two years, and yet, I am not bored of it in the least. Thank you all for reading!

I’ve been messing around with making stop motion movies with the polymer pears (available for sale at the Angry Pear Etsy shop). I will be posting more soon!

It may be a bit difficult to see this pear’s signs. Her first sign says, “Happy Birthday to me!” Her second sign says, “Hope you got me lots of presents!”

Expozine Pictures and Interview

Expozine was so much fun. I wanted to say thanks to those of you who stopped by. It was really great meeting you in person. The whole experience was so rewarding. I get such a kick out of seeing people enjoy these pears as much as I do.

I was also interviewed by the Montreal-based online journal GeeKorner. Check out the interview (there are more pictures!)

Little pears made out of polymer in an escargot dish.

Holiday and blank greeting cards (also available online at Angry Pear’s Etsy Shop).

Comics from some of my favorite blog posts and a brand new comic introducing Angry Pear. (These will soon be available in the Angry Pear shop).

Postcards with some of my favorite panels (like Leaf Extensions and Angry Pear vs. The Mood Ring).

Me.

So thanks again for coming by and being suppeartive! I hope to attend Expozine again next year and more craft fairs in the Montreal area.

Night of the Lepus!

This photo shoot was inspired by the extraordinary film Night of the Lepus, in which a plague of giant rabbits terrorize the American Southwest. If you haven’t seen it, I urge you to check it out.

 

“Ahhhhh!”

Polymer Pears!

These are some polymer pears I made over the weekend.

 

It was hard to make their legs.
