I actually said this once…
I actually said this once…
Sometimes things that are terrifying at first can turn out to be wonderful. (Just don’t let go.)
A french expression that means high maintenance woman. I think it’s hilarious.
I really like and relate to pears 🙂
(She is the face of August)
When it’s this hot all you can do is sit and sweat and glare and be angry.
Not quite what they eggspected…
This one is also on Society 6. I’ve made it available as a print as well as t-shirts and baby onesies!
My rabbit Beatrice actually did this to another bunny in the waiting room at the vet. I was so mortified!

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.
Another one from Work-a-Day Pear
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!
Spring seems like it will never arrive here in Montreal. Yesterday it snowed!
This pear is also known as Fondante d’Automne (Autumn’s candy).
This one appears in Pears of History, Myth, and Legend
Just a reminder that I’ll be at the H4C art show tomorrow night from 7-11 pm.

If you’re in Montreal, stop by!

Other things pears try to do:
Although when I originally started Angry Pear I was very adamant about NEVER drawing anything but pears, I have since decided that some things (irritations and annoyances mostly) just can’t be expressed with pears. Or, I guess I should say, they cannot be expressed clearly enough with pears. So I have decided to occasionally post a comic or drawing that isn’t a pear.
Wearing glasses in the winter is annoying.
Don’t you hate this?
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.
Again, I can’t remember what episode this is from. But maybe J. Lau does?
Here are some more of my favorite Hercule Poirot quotes (from the television series):
From “Elephants Can Remember”
From “Peril at End House”
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.
Stay tuned for part 2 next week!
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):
Yes, pears wear belts. And they especially need new ones after all the nibbles on Christmas!
Hope you all had a nice holiday!
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.

I’ve posted all of these before, but thought I’d post some Halloween pears from previous years. I redrew Nospearatu and Pear Sematary, however.
