Sometimes things that are terrifying at first can turn out to be wonderful. (Just don’t let go.)

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!

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!¬†

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.

Pears Come in All Shapes and Sizes

pears come in all shapes and sizes

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.

Pear Varieties: Chojuro

chojuro 1 chojuro 2

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 comicsРit 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!

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:

Dokter Peer / Doctor Pear

dokter peer 2dokter peer 1

 A few months ago, Esther, a very nice woman in Europe (probably the Netherlands given the Dutch description), contacted me about doing this custom drawing (a doctor pear tending to a sick blueberry). She wanted to give the picture to her friend as a gift for finishing medical school. I LOVED the project because their nicknames for each other are pear and blueberryРvery cute! Esther ended up putting the image on a bag for her friend, and I think it looks amazing!

I am always interested in making custom drawings / prints. If you’re interested, you can contact me through Etsy or email me at drew[at]angriestpear[dot]com.

Abbe Fetel Pear (Pear Varieties)

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.

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.

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:

Pear Calendar!

il_fullxfull.543858003_haho

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:
