The Market Cooperative

I’ll be selling Angry Pear comics and other things from my etsy shop tomorrow at the Market Cooperative. This is my second time at this craft fair, and if last time is any indication, there’s going to be TONS of amazing artisans there.

In addition to comics, I’ve made a few St. Valentine themed owls just for the fair:

(the little hearts are felted pins, which I might sell too).

Cards:

And if cutesy Valentine’s aren’t your thing, there’s always this very Angry Pear card:

Nospearatu and Other Spooky Pears

I’ve posted all of these before, but thought I’d post some Halloween pears from previous years. I redrew Nospearatu and Pear Sematary, however.

Needlepoint Pears

Pears like needlepoint.

Introducing Angry Pear needlepoint canvases and kits!

This winter, I collaborated with Barbara Russell of Barbara Russell Needlepoint Designs to convert some of my pear drawings into needlepoint painted canvases. She picked six of my favorite illustrations. So exciting! Here are the ones she picked:

Cleopeartra:

Pears like Wine:

Pampeared:

Pear Salon Disaster:

Pears go well with Cheese:

The canvases have turned out beautifully! You can purchase the canvases (and kits with threads) from Barbara Russell’s website under the pear people collection. I used to do a lot of needlepoint when I was younger, and I can’t wait to try these!

I’ll post pictures after I’ve finished one of these. I just can’t figure out which one I want. Probably Pampeared.

Pears also go pretty well in grilled cheese. This one with Whiskey Cheddar sounds quite good!

2012 Favorites

I wanted to make a pear calendar for 2013 using the winners of Pear of the Month, but that never materialized since I kind of abandoned Pear of the Month mid way through the year.(I still want to bring it back though). WordPress, however, kept a record of the most popular posts from last year. So here they are!

Thank You!

cute pear

I want to thank all of you for reading Angry Pear. It means a lot to me. I make Angry Pear because it makes me smile and laugh, and sometimes it helps me work out some of my own anger issues… It’s rewarding to share these comics and drawings with readers who appreciate what I’m doing.  So thank you all for reading, commenting, and laughing. Please keep sharing Angry Pear with your friends and family!

(Consider following me on Twitter or Facebook for a little extra pearishness!)

Happy New Year! I wish you all the best for 2013!

I’d like to be the kind of pear that has a Christmas village, or rather, the kind of pear that can afford one.

Pears Love Pears

Pears love Pears from Drew McKevitt on Vimeo.

This is a little stop-motion movie I made a while ago.

And speaking of pears loving pears, I’ve been collecting tons of pear pictures on Pinterest. You can follow my Pinterest pear board here!

Also, I’ll be at the Willingdon School Craft Fair this weekend with Angry Pear stuff. If you’re around Montreal, check it out. I think there will be some pretty amazing vendors there.

Looking Back: Halloween! 1

I’m starting to get into the Halloween spirit. Here are some of my favorite Halloween pears from past years:

“What kind of trick is this!?”

Pear dressed as an apple. Not much scarier than that!

“There’s no such thing as Vampears. They don’t exist.”

I made some special Halloween themed pins– ghosts and vampears! You can get them at the Angry Pear Etsy Shop.

Last Days of the Balcony

 

It’s getting just a bit too cold to sit out on the balcony and enjoy oneself. I did, however, get a lot of use and enjoyment out of it this summer (most of the time).

Some pictures of the pears (and owls) on my balcony:

Capton Contest – finalists!

Last week, I posted a pear picture and asked readers to caption it. All of the captions were hilarious, but there can only be one winner! It was hard for me to pick, but I’ve narrowed it down to four, now it’s up to you to pick the favorite!

Use this poll (I’ve add the option to add a completely different choice, in case you completely disagree with my finalists):

Thanks for playing everyone! I’ll announce the winner this weekend!
