Hey folks!

My name is Katie Shanahan and I'm a cartoonist, animator and storyboard artist from Toronto, Canada.

I've had my comics published in some excellent anthologies like "Flight," "Explorer," "The Anthology Project" and "Womanthology" and have worked on animated tv shows for PBS Kids, Cartoon Network, and National Geographic Kids.

My Comics!

My first self-published humour/fantasy comic "Silly Kingdom", written by my brother Shaggy is available as $0.99 digital PDF download and more info can be found here: www.sillykingdom.com

Progress Report

Oof! After getting swamped by a ton of storyboarding freelance (and drawing a comic for the super cool Valor anthology) I'm back on the ink-train and working hard to get the next Silly Kingdom comic finished this month. Stay tuned for details! If you've already pre-ordered we'll be emailing you soon with an update on some special extra perks that will be coming your way :)

OH wow, thank you all much for the 3 million page views!! :D You guys are the absolute best ♥ Sorry I'm not more active on DA these days, I tend to hang around on the tumblr and twitter more if you'd like to keep up with me there (username: ktshy). Big hugs!!
Valor by ktshy
Valor
Finished inking a page for the Valor Comic anthology ( valor-anthology.tumblr.com/ ) 8 more to go! Between this, Silly Kingdom and a bunch of storyboard work, I'm hoping my hands don't shrivel up into lil' art-claws this month.

Tools: Strathmore smooth bristol, orange col-erase pencil, pentel pocket brush and Pigma Microns for fine detail.

I love your work, it's very expressive and free. I have a quick question...

What type/brand of pencil do you use to sketch the drawings before you ink them?
