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.

The Market Cooperative

I’ll be selling Angry Pear comics and other things from my etsy shop tomorrow at the Market Cooperative. This is my second time at this craft fair, and if last time is any indication, there’s going to be TONS of amazing artisans there.

In addition to comics, I’ve made a few St. Valentine themed owls just for the fair:

(the little hearts are felted pins, which I might sell too).

Cards:

And if cutesy Valentine’s aren’t your thing, there’s always this very Angry Pear card:

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.

Knit Pear!

Verónica at Agujas Blog (a lovely knitting / fiber arts blog that’s making me want to get back into knitting again) recently featured some Angry Pear comics about knitting! Check them out!

Here is a knit pear I made recently:

Before eyes and limbs.

These are some polymer pears I made over the weekend.

 

It was hard to make their legs.
