 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.

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!

Expozine 2013!

expozine 2013

I’ll be attending Expozine this weekend! And no, I will not be selling the privilege of patting my rabbit, Beatrice. Instead, I’ve got new comics, stationary, pins, magnets, and watercolors! I may even bring some giant knitted pears.

Here’s a sample of some of the comics and stationary I’ll be selling.

Most of the new stuff is already listed in my Etsy shop, if you’re interested and aren’t in Montreal this weekend.

If you are in Montreal, you should definitely stop by Expozine. There are tons of small publishers, all selling really unique books and zines.

November 16 and 17, 12-6pm

5035 Saint-Dominique, Montréal, Québec

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!
