Pear of the Month – February 2013

Yes, February was a long time ago, but I’m still going to post my favorite pears of that month, and ask you to vote on your favorites. Like I said with my last pear of the month, I’m hoping to turn the winners into a calendar!

The nominees:

Staying on Budget:

Leftover Cake:

You can vote using the poll on the sidebar. You can also write in pears from February 2013. I’ll leave the poll up for about a week, and then announce the winner!

Thanks for voting!

Pear of the Month Returns!

pear of the month 2I’ve decided to bring back Pear of the Month. For those of you who are new, this is where I pick out comics and illustrations from previous months and ask readers to vote for their favorites. I’m bringing it back because I want to make a calendar for 2014, and I feel that this will give me a good sense of what I should feature in the calendar.

I had intended to do this for 2013, but never got around to it. I ended up buying a “Bygone Days”-themed calendar from the discount bin at Cartes Carlton. Of course, if I get this one for 2014 together in time, I plan to make it available in my Etsy shop!

We’ll start with January 2013 (no sense going back any further). Here are the contestants!

Here’s how it works: I’ll leave the poll up on the sidebar for about a week. In that time, you can vote as often as you like for as many pears as you like (you can even write-in pears). I’ll announce the winner next week!

Thanks for voting!

Just an Angry Pear

Well, not just an angry pear. This time I tried using Illustrator for the first time to create shading. What do you think?

Needlepoint Pears

Pears like needlepoint.

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:

Pears go well with Cheese:

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.

2012 Favorites

I wanted to make a pear calendar for 2013 using the winners of Pear of the Month, but that never materialized since I kind of abandoned Pear of the Month mid way through the year.(I still want to bring it back though). WordPress, however, kept a record of the most popular posts from last year. So here they are!

Thank You!

cute pear

I want to thank all of you for reading Angry Pear. It means a lot to me. I make Angry Pear because it makes me smile and laugh, and sometimes it helps me work out some of my own anger issues… It’s rewarding to share these comics and drawings with readers who appreciate what I’m doing.  So thank you all for reading, commenting, and laughing. Please keep sharing Angry Pear with your friends and family!

(Consider following me on Twitter or Facebook for a little extra pearishness!)

Happy New Year! I wish you all the best for 2013!

Christmas Village

I’d like to be the kind of pear that has a Christmas village, or rather, the kind of pear that can afford one.

Pears Love Pears

This is a little stop-motion movie I made a while ago.

And speaking of pears loving pears, I’ve been collecting tons of pear pictures on Pinterest. You can follow my Pinterest pear board here!

Also, I’ll be at the Willingdon School Craft Fair this weekend with Angry Pear stuff. If you’re around Montreal, check it out. I think there will be some pretty amazing vendors there.

New Stationpeary!

I’ve recently added some new cards in the Angry Pear shop (and they aren’t even pears). I just got them from the printer last week, and I am so happy with how they turned out.

A cute owl Valentine, featuring “Claude,” who has only made one appearance in Angry Pear so far:

And a tipsy crab birthday card:

Go check them out!

Looking Back: Halloween! 1

I’m starting to get into the Halloween spirit. Here are some of my favorite Halloween pears from past years:

“What kind of trick is this!?”

Pear dressed as an apple. Not much scarier than that!

“There’s no such thing as Vampears. They don’t exist.”

I made some special Halloween themed pins– ghosts and vampears! You can get them at the Angry Pear Etsy Shop.

Last Days of the Balcony

 

It’s getting just a bit too cold to sit out on the balcony and enjoy oneself. I did, however, get a lot of use and enjoyment out of it this summer (most of the time).

Some pictures of the pears (and owls) on my balcony:

Pear-shaped owl.

Capton Contest – finalists!

Last week, I posted a pear picture and asked readers to caption it. All of the captions were hilarious, but there can only be one winner! It was hard for me to pick, but I’ve narrowed it down to four, now it’s up to you to pick the favorite!

Use this poll (I’ve add the option to add a completely different choice, in case you completely disagree with my finalists):

Thanks for playing everyone! I’ll announce the winner this weekend!
