Angry Pear is about pears– their troubles, their joys, and their anger. Angry Pear is a recurring character who is angered by everything and everyone. Can she really be blamed? The strip originally began as a characterization of my own life. I coined the word “pearish” among friends and family as a way of describing peevish, fickle, and often silly behavior.
Drew McKevitt is a knitter and illustrator of pears. This blog’s intention is to show pears in their natural habitat and showcase their pearishness.
Drew also writes poetry and works as an editor. She would much rather live with pears…
You can find / follow me and Angry Pear on Facebook and Twitter.
Also check out the Angry Pear Etsy shop!

Hi, nice to meet you !
October 8, 2010 at 1:32 pm
Hi, Drew! I love your drawings. They’re entertaining and yet oddly relaxing at the same time. The pears — even the disgruntled ones — are all so endearing.
I came across your site when I entered a recipe for Amaretto-Pear Baked Oatmeal on my site. I’ve happily subscribed. 🙂
October 8, 2010 at 2:24 pm
Thank you so much for your nice comment and subscribing. Your Amaretto Pear Baked Oatmeal looks delightful by the way.

I like the new heading caption – Another day, another pear!

I’ve been reading Angry Pear for a while now, and I want you to know that I love how consistently you make me smile. There’s a lot about this gentle, strangely perverse, very sweet comic to like. I’m all admiring and stuff.
January 31, 2011 at 12:19 pm
Thank you so much! That means a lot to me. I’m glad you are enjoying the blog (I really like drawing these pears).
October 21, 2011 at 7:14 am
hello! Everyone calls me Pear (nick name hahaha). & O-M-G I love your Pear comics! They are so adorable! ^_^
October 24, 2011 at 12:41 am
Thanks! I’m glad you like them. Pear is a lovely nickname!
November 2, 2011 at 8:45 pm
My nickname is also Pear! I am also angry quite a lot, so I appreciate your angry pear drawings very much. 🙂
November 2, 2011 at 5:22 pm
I just found your blog through “Freshly Pressed”…It is so lovely ! The pears are all so cute 🙂 For a pear , they show a lot of emotions 🙂 what a great concept !
November 2, 2011 at 6:09 pm
Thank you so much! I’m glad you enjoy it.
November 2, 2011 at 6:24 pm
So glad I found your blog! Love it!
November 3, 2011 at 10:59 pm
Thanks. I really like your blog as well!
November 2, 2011 at 7:05 pm
Great work! Loving this! Congrats on being Fresh-pressed!
November 2, 2011 at 7:08 pm
Thanks very much!
November 2, 2011 at 8:11 pm
I’m so happy you were finally Freshly Pressed. You absolutely deserve it! This calls for a glass of pear wine!
November 2, 2011 at 8:14 pm
Thanks so much! I am absolutely having a glass of wine this evening– just as soon as I get done with work!
November 2, 2011 at 11:26 pm
angry pears are hilarious!
are there other angry fruit?
November 3, 2011 at 8:10 pm
Thanks. No only pears. Other fruits are not as fun or interesting.
November 2, 2011 at 11:37 pm
I love your Angry Pear character, Drew! She’s quite wonderful!
November 3, 2011 at 11:00 pm
Thank you so much.
November 3, 2011 at 1:02 am
Love it! Great idea, and so refreshing- just like a pear!
April 9, 2012 at 9:56 am
November 3, 2011 at 4:53 am
is Drew one of those pears too? 😉
November 3, 2011 at 8:09 pm
haha. Yes. I am definitely a pear!
November 3, 2011 at 5:16 am
Thank goodness for Freshly Pressed because it led me to finding your awesome works! 😀
November 3, 2011 at 11:05 pm
Thanks so much for visiting! Freshly Pressed has been great for pears.
November 3, 2011 at 12:39 pm
dropping by to your page and found a beauty inside. great work. thank you. keep drawing 🙂
November 3, 2011 at 11:05 pm
Thank you. That is very kind.
November 3, 2011 at 4:23 pm
I’m so glad you got Pressed or else I wouldn’t have discovered this blog.
November 3, 2011 at 5:23 pm
These are fabulous! I have a cartoon I can’t share because it’s under a different name I don’t want associated, but it has a similar concept: simple images, simple colors, simple props. Done right like this, you can apply them to almost anything can’t you? Great work!!
November 3, 2011 at 7:33 pm
It’s very true. I feel like things that are not really funny or particularly interesting take on a new tone when happening to a pear. haha
November 3, 2011 at 7:58 pm
Your pears truly exhibit what life is all about! Thanks for creating them! Keep up the great work!
November 3, 2011 at 11:08 pm
Thanks! I really enjoy making them, so it’s nice to know people enjoy seeing them!
November 4, 2011 at 4:46 am
Very nice blog and very different than most of the blogs that I find. Who would of known that a blog that is all about pears would be so entertaining? This is a really amusing site, and I’ll be sure to come back often to see what the Pears are up to now. PS: I really like the illustrations too.

November 4, 2011 at 1:05 pm
Thank you! Pears look very unassuming at the market or in fruit salads, but they lead very interesting lives! I like your site as well.
November 4, 2011 at 3:56 pm
Oh gosh, the pears are wonderful! And this is hilarious! ❤
November 4, 2011 at 3:59 pm
Thank you very much. Thanks for visiting!
November 5, 2011 at 2:50 pm
So glad your blog was freshly pressed. I love it!
November 10, 2011 at 1:44 am
cool blog you got here!…my sister teases me and calls me a pear. your blog just make me feel ‘not teased ‘ anymore.!!! lol. im liking it!
November 15, 2011 at 2:50 pm
hahahaha, thanks. Actually my grandmother and I used to call each other pears to tease one another. Eventually, it became a term of endearment (as it should be).
November 12, 2011 at 7:00 pm
Yes, your pears are very inspiring and couldnt help smiling myself.
November 12, 2011 at 7:02 pm
Thank you so much. I am glad you enjoy!
November 15, 2011 at 10:20 am
I simply love these pears. Had no idea pears could be so uplifting, even though they are angry.

Nice! Pears pair so well with…pretty much anything. Like my walls. Do you ever sell any of your illustrations?
August 6, 2012 at 10:28 am
Thanks so much! I actually don’t sell prints right now. I’ve been working on it for a while, but I have trouble with getting the colors just right– hopefully I can make them available in the near future. However, if the pear you are interested in is in black and white, I can definitely make you a print of that. Just contact me by email (angriest[dot]pear[at]gmail[dot]com or on etsy. http://www.etsy.com/shop/AngryPear .
August 4, 2012 at 6:35 am
Oops! Just checked out your menu bar and found the pear paraphernalia. 🙂
August 8, 2012 at 7:45 pm
I’m so excited to find this blog! I started collecting pears when I realised they looked like a big boomby bottom swinging from their stalk. So voluptuous. Now they cover my pillows, hang on my walls, sit on my window sill and arrive by post from relatives. Loving your drawings, and have just commissioned my mother to try and knit me a pear :o)
August 9, 2012 at 9:29 pm
Thank you for visiting my blog! I can completely relate to your love of pears. I have the same fascination and they are all over my house as well it’s always wonderful to hear from someone who appreciates (appearciates) pears as much as I do! I hope the knit pear turns out well! I am working on posting a pattern and / or offering them in my etsy shop soon.
August 17, 2012 at 6:03 am
Your blog is brilliant, I love the Angry Pears! So cute, even if they are angry! 🙂
August 17, 2012 at 5:26 pm
Thank you so much! I’m glad you like the pears!

Angry pears. Simply a genius concept. Who wouldn’t find that funny? Well, apart from the pears themselves…

Hahaha. Thank you so much!

January 12, 2014 at 7:08 am
Thank you for following illustrated moment! I couldn’t help but laugh at your ‘rabbit poo’ post, as I feel your pain. I have a blue mini lop who basically owns the house…and I’ve just become a mere slave too.
January 13, 2014 at 8:48 am
Haha. Those buns really take over! They are so deceptively cute and small, but really they long to rule!
October 1, 2014 at 5:29 pm
Found your blog off Peas and Cougars blog list… glad I did!!
I too am a lover of fruit and lover of pears… I’ve heard that pears can help woman keep weight off… not so sure if this is true… but they are yummy!
I look forward to reading more post… thanks for the laughs!!
October 7, 2014 at 1:42 pm
Hi Sarah, Thanks so much for you kind words. I’m really glad you’re enjoying my comic! All the best, Drew
October 5, 2014 at 2:07 pm
will you be making christmas cards this year? I would love to give them out this year!!! (I’m a caregiver and my resident had a christmas card from a Pear who got tangled in lights)!!!
October 7, 2014 at 1:45 pm
Hi Sergio, That’s wonderful that your resident had a pear card! I will definitely be selling that one this year. I had ideas for others, but I’m not sure I’ll have them done in time. Check back here in a few weeks, and I should have my Etsy shop open again. Best wishes, Drew
November 14, 2014 at 12:04 pm
Hi Sergio, I just listed the Christmas cards in my Etsy shop! https://www.etsy.com/listing/86613210/set-of-6-pear-christmas-card-blank-note?ref=shop_home_active_1
