Angry Pear

comics about pears – updated twice a week

Pearfesto (About)

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.

  1. The new posts are hilarious! treadmill!!! hahahaha like her peaqrls flying out behind her. Did they fall off? they were not in the next scene. hahahaha

  2. 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. 🙂

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

  4. 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.

  5. hello! Everyone calls me Pear (nick name hahaha). & O-M-G I love your Pear comics! They are so adorable! ^_^

  6. 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 !

  7. So glad I found your blog! Love it!

  8. Great work! Loving this! Congrats on being Fresh-pressed!

  9. I’m so happy you were finally Freshly Pressed. You absolutely deserve it! This calls for a glass of pear wine!

  10. angry pears are hilarious!

  16. I’m so glad you got Pressed or else I wouldn’t have discovered this blog.

  17. 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!!

  18. Your pears truly exhibit what life is all about! Thanks for creating them! Keep up the great work!

  19. 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.

    http://vandysnape.wordpress.com/2012/05/02/kreativ-blogger-award/
    Congrats ! 🙂

  33. http://insanityofmotherhood.com/2012/05/19/one-lovely-blog-award/ Hello. I have nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award. Congratulations!

  34. I really love your illustrations…. and pears…of course!!!! ahahahah!
    Smmmuack!!!

  35. Congrats for being in the Middlest Sisters 50. Love your idea and the execution is wonderful. Wish I could draw!

  36. Nice! Pears pair so well with…pretty much anything. Like my walls. Do you ever sell any of your illustrations?

    • 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 .

  37. Oops! Just checked out your menu bar and found the pear paraphernalia. 🙂

  38. 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)

    • 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.

  39. Your blog is brilliant, I love the Angry Pears! So cute, even if they are angry! 🙂

  40. Good morning! I know that some of you have already seen the post, but I want to “officially” let each of you know that you were nominated by your blogging friends for the “Good Neighbor Award!” Congratulations! 🙂 Best, Katherine http://pillowsalamode.wordpress.com/2012/09/21/good-neighbor-award-winners-2/
