Angry Pear

comics about pears – updated twice a week




I actually said this once…


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:

A while ago I posted Misery Day:

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

Angry Pear Goes Back to School

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!

Don’t Like Pears?

Pears at the Market

I feel like these pears when I go to the market on the weekend. So crowded!


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!

Boiling with Rage

Sorry I haven’t been posting these past few weeks. Pears have taken a back seat to everything else going on lately.


So Hot

too hot 2014

When it’s this hot all you can do is sit and sweat and glare and be angry.

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.

Pear Varieties: Chojuro

This one is one of my favorites, because she’s so angry! I made a second watercolor version too. She’s also the month of May in the 2014 Pears of the World Calendar (which is also on sale for nearly 50% off). The thing about this calendar is that you can cut the calendar stuff at the bottom off and have prints after the months are finished!

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!


Angry Pear Tweets

I shared this comic on Twitter the other day, but realized I never posted it here. I’m still trying to figure Twitter out.

By the way, you can follow me on Twitter here!

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:

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…

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 to randomly decide the winners. I only mention it because I think it’s neat!

 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.







Good luck everyone! Here are the Facebook and Twitter links again!


Happy New Year!

Some Gifs for you!


You may have to click on them to start them going.


(I decided to include this one as well, because it is so crazy).


Thank you for reading Angry Pear! Best wishes to you all for 2014!


Pear Calendar!


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:


Here’s a list of all the months (full descriptions can be seen on Etsy)il_fullxfull.543870473_n6hc

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.

Here’s what I picked up there! Zines from Shushanna Bikini London, “Infinity in the Palm of Your Hand” chapbook and two prints from Cardboard Reality Press and Bekky O’Neil, “Alpha Fig” by Wai Au from Love Love Hill, and two Moomin comics from Drawn and Quarterly.


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!

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.


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.
