Angry Pear

comics about pears – updated twice a week


Long Time No Pear

It’s been forever! Drawing has taken a backseat to textiles as I continue in my master’s degree in textile design. But pears are never far from my mind! Here is a pear I knit with wire for a class last spring:



If you’re curious to see more of my textile (knitting), I have a portfolio online here:

Misery Day Together

A while ago I posted Misery Day:

I just wanted to make it clear that Misery Day can be enjoyed with others!

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

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!

Lace Pear

Here’s something a bit different from the usual comics I post. I drew this pear with pen and watercolor, and then became obsessed (hard to believe of someone who has been drawing pears for 4 years, I know) with trying different color combinations. These are my favorites:

Sorry I haven’t been posting these past few weeks. Pears have taken a back seat to everything else going on lately.

When it’s this hot all you can do is sit and sweat and glare and be angry.

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.


What’s Great About Pears

Just in case you didn’t already know. whats great about pears

This one is also on Society 6. I’ve made it available as a print as well as t-shirts and baby onesies!


Bikes off the Sidewalk!

bikes off the sidewalk

This is one of my biggest peeves about living in a city, or specifically, living in Montreal. Bikes need to get off the sidewalk! I’m tired of having to jump out of the way! Stop at red lights and stay off the sideWALK. It’s not called the sideROLL. There are bike paths!

This comic is from Pearishables (available on Etsy). 


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.

Here’s “Pear Houseguest” again (in case you missed it):

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 comics– it 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!


Angry Pear Tweets

I shared this comic on Twitter the other day, but realized I never posted it here. I’m still trying to figure Twitter out.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

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:
