Another one from Work-a-Day Pear!
This is an older comic that I redid for the Work-A-Day Pear comic.
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.
This second image is from the 2014 Calendar. She is the face of February! (Click the image to enlarge if the description is too small).
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!
This is the problem with bringing plants inside for the winter.
Just like or follow Angry Pear on Facebook or Twitter (if you have done so already, then of course you can enter), then comment on the contest post. It’s very important that you comment on the contest post to enter the contest.
All you have to do is “like” or “follow” Angry Pear on Facebook OR Twitter and comment here why you like Angry Pear or which prize you would like. If you’ve already liked or followed Angry Pear (thank you!), just comment here anyway. The contest is open to anyone in the world.
By the end of the day next Sunday (January 26), I’ll pick two winners at random from the comments below.
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.
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…
If you’re on WordPress, you know that they send this nice summary of the past year at the end of every year. I thought I’d post the favorite comics (according to their tracking of page views) from 2013. Thanks to everyone who’s subscribed to this blog. I really appreciate all of your comments and support!
(Just a link for this one since there are a few comics here).

This one is from a new print comic Work-A-Day Pear!
You certainly don’t want to be in that position this year! I’ve been making lots of new things and gradually adding them to my Angry Pear Etsy shop. A lot of them would make pear-fect stocking stuffers!
Here are a few of the new items available:
I’ve chosen a few images to turn into prints that I then paint with watercolor. I’m also up to doing custom work, so if you’ve seen something on this site that you’d like as a print or have an idea for something, just email me drew[at]angriestpear[dot]com.
New comics! (Pearishables, Pears of History, Myth and Legend, and Work-A-Day Pear). I love making these print comics. They’re all hand-bound and include some of my favorite comics from the past year:
Needle felted owl ornaments! Why didn’t I make pears? I don’t know.
And some old favorites:
Thanks for looking at my crafts!
Want a print of this one? I’ve added a hand-painted and matted print to my Etsy shop!
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the US ! Hope your celebrations are more like the top picture and don’t devolve into the second one!
Maybe the food was too caramelized. Haha.
Just a reminder that I’ll be selling pear comics, etc. today at the Market Cooperative. If you’re in Montreal, stop by!

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.

A bunch of giant pears ready to attack me:
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.

For a list of vendors and more details, visit Expozine’s website!
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.
