Not Pear

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.

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 blueberry– very 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.

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 love how when the figure skaters fall, they always get up and keep going.

And the Winners Are…

Thank you for participating in the Facebook / Twitter contest. I really appreciate all of your comments, and I honestly wish I could give everyone a comic or calendar. But that would be too expensive. So chosen at random, here are the two winners:

Anna Cull of In the Art Cave

Carla of Team Nugget

I used this list randomizer at random.org to randomly decide the winners. I only mention it because I think it’s neat!

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…

Yes, pears wear belts. And they especially need new ones after all the nibbles on Christmas!

Hope you all had a nice holiday!

Distroboto and Angry Pear!

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.

Technical Difficulties

technical difficulties

Last week my computer died, and I had to erase everything on it and reinstall the operating system. As a result, I lost the pre-prepared (prePEARed?) pears I had planned to post in the next week or so. So, I’ll be taking a hiatus from posting as I get all this together.
