Be My Brother

Last year my cousin, Gav, set up a charity organization to support testicular cancer patients.

Be My Brother supports Testicular Cancer patients around the world . Education is critical to raising awareness amongst young men .
You can contact him in confidence at for further info or on Twitter @bemybrother.

To show how serious Gav was about it, he stopped drinking alchol for the entire year. This was an amazing feat, especially for a Teehan! I stopped drinking for January to help him, and it was hell! He set up a blog for it too - 

Gav raised something like 11000 euro for cancer research. And this year we hope to do the "cycle" in aid of Be My Brother.

Anyway...  this was the logo i designed for the whole thing. To be honest its actually inspired by a family photo of all the Dublin Teehans, so I'm pretty happy with it and even more happy once Gav saw it.
Gav hopes to have a website launched this year for the charity to make it even more official. Here's hoping 2011 is a kick-ass year for it.

NYCC 2010

 Went to the New york Comic con last year - to say I had a brilliant time is an understatement. There with a bunch of the "micks".

The eclectic micks are a group of comic artists that I'm friends with. The group are all talented fuckers and you should go check out the blog right away.

Any way. Here's the sketches I got over there - the first is a J. P. Leon -  the man is pure talent. Its probably my favourite sketch of the con. Pure Class. Leon is a part of The BLVD. more on that later.

Eric Larson sketch - one of my favourite spidey artists, i think i have his whole run on Amazing. While everyone was talking about Todd Mcfarlane, i thought Eric was knocking out far better stuff on the title.
Meeting Eric was great, he has the craziest way of holding a pen while drawing. Plus i watched him go through one of the worst portfolios I've ever seen and still try to be nice to the guy. (it ended with him telling the guy "you really need to learn how to actually draw")

Gabriel Ba - love his work. Really exaggerated stuff. More cartoony, so you can tell why I'd like him. Great guy. Him and Fabio had a queue of women trying to get photos with them.

Fabio Moon - Works with Gabriel a lot, similar styles. I love their stuff.

Bernard Chang - Bernard is part of The BLVD - a collection of brilliant artists that go to cons together. Love this wonder woman he did for me.

Trevor Goring - Loved chatting with Goring and his wife. Goring too is part of BLVD. He told me he wasn't a big fan of drawing sketches at cons, but i still got one out of him. He's working on a book about the history of story-boarding in film, and i cant wait to see it.

New Banner

So did a new banner while watching united. I'm a big gamer and a fan of 8_bit art. So naturally i had to make something to show that. think it turned out quite well.

lunchtime art

Did a little drawing of Eoghan using a pixel tool for flash today... thought the style suited him. (he's an 8_bit fan like me)

just thought i'd post it before going drinking tonight.

plus here's the link to his blog too

So, what have I been up to for 2010. Well i spent the last year and a half as a supervising animator on Cartoon Networks next big thing - a show called "The Amazing World of Gumball".

Its gonna air in September of this year and heres hoping its a successful as we think it'll be. A hell of a lot of hard work went into it by alot of very talented people and it was great to work with 'em all.

Here's a link to 2 of the crew that i thought were class (2 of many, i'll link the rest later)

And when I was at home, I had decided to work on paper and not on the p.c. - So I put everything from the last couple of years into sketchbooks (a photo of my sketchbooks obviously).

Also kept my new years resolution going, decided last year to fill a sketchbook a month. might have only been A6's but I enjoyed it.

Spent Saturday stitching together some photos. I had a few from a couple of different trip and things, but i'm just gonna post a paticularly special one.

This is taken at my friends Simon and Pam's wedding. The wedding was held in a nature park in Sligo and rates as probably one of the best weddings I've ever been to.

I had wanted to post a large version for the lads who were with me to look at, and to not post it on facebook.

The second one is from Christmas day 2010 - its of the pitches behind my folks house, just kinda liked the light and the surrealness of it actually being a white Christmas.

2 in one year!

This might turn into a hobby after all - here's another one of the designs I did for the anchorman character. This one is another inspired by a real person. Was really happy with this. Again this was nothing like what the style is, but i had fun

two thousand and what?!?

Was actually thinking I should have killed this black hole off back in 2009 - but thanks to certain friends (you know who you are) I didnt.

So here it is - a NEW post!!!!

So here's a character design/ charactiure I submitted for a project in developement in work. No where near the style of the show, but I still like it. Can you guess who it is?
