Commercial Appeal

Kieran is inspired by music. When she hears the music, she sees characters and action. This is a great example of her commercial appeal. This film clip was animated on a Nintendo DS program called Flipnote. Nintendo software doesn't allow communication with a computer directly, only through a website called Haetna, which makes the animations public. Because of this, we have to film (with a camera) the Flipnotes. This explains the horrible quality of the film. We hope to outfit Kieran with a Bamboo tablet and animation program this Christmas so she can start animating with a Mac. She has proven that she is ready.

Pet Wars

This is a comic I drew when I was in third grade. I made it for a friend who was moving. He loved Star Wars, and even though I don't really like Star Wars, I did this for him. -Kieran

I need an agent!

I was seven when I drew this at the street drawing festival.

I was eight here and have been doing this for a long time.


constellations, Taurus and Pegasus

I want to be known and I think I will become very useful someday.


my dad has been doing street drawing for 25 years. I started when I was 7. On my first year, they made my picture a postcard. I Madonnari Italian Street Painting Festival happens every Memorial Day at the Santa Barbara Mission.

Chaucer's picks up Kieran's Book!

This is what it looks like when Kieran is working.

This is what it looks like when Kieran's published book gets picked up by out local bookstore, Chaucer's.

This is what it looks like when Chaucer's asks the author to sign copies of her book

You can't see it but the author drew the main characters with each signature.

Kieran wanted me to post this self portrait

My photo
Hi. My name is Kieran Meaney. I have been drawing since I was 3, cartooning since I was 8, and animating since I was 10. My cousins call me Waggytail, ('Tis fun!) and I love the outdoors and creating. I will be the youngest person without a Facebook in my grade and I likes bugs. X3
