Background about Kieran Meehan

Growing up in Glasgow, Kieran Meehan spent his youth drawing, painting, reading and devouring comics. At eleven years old, he enrolled in Saturday art classes at the Glasgow School of Art.

As an adult, Kieran worked in a design studio and began sending single-panel cartoons to a variety of magazines and newspapers. His first acceptance came in 1991, and he soon had work printed in many publications, including Private Eye, The Spectator and Reader’s Digest, in addition to weekly spots in The Glaswegian and Scotland on Sunday. Within two years of sending his cartoons to King Features Syndicate, 100 of Kieran’s single-panel cartoons were featured under King’s title, The New Breed.

Jay Kennedy, then editor-in-chief of King Features, encouraged Kieran to develop a comic strip in addition to his signature single-panel cartoons. Meehan Streak, a strip based on Kieran’s single-panel comics, launched and appeared until 2005 with other syndicates. After “Meehan Streak” ended its run, Kieran was offered a King Features Syndicate development contract to work on the next innovative step in his career: a strip chronicling the friendships and foibles between lawyers, doctors and cops. Starring Samuel, a skeptical defense lawyer, Lyndon, a sophisticated and oft-oblivious psychiatrist, and Stan, a tough-talking cop with a big heart, Pros & Cons launched with King Features Syndicate in September 2005.
