I’m Katie Shanahan (I also go by the web handle “ktshy”) I’m a cartoonist and story artist based in Toronto, Canada.

Collaborating frequently with my brother/writer Steven, I co-created the Joe Shuster Award nominated comic "Silly Kingdom", illustrated a dozen short stories for published anthologies, and post goofy auto-bio webcomics online every now and again.

I’ve worked for 14 years in the animation industry, and do my best to maintain a happy balance between comics and cartoons.
