I’m Katie Shanahan (I also go by the web handle “ktshy”) I’m an animation storyboard artist from Toronto who loves to make comics.

A graduate of Sheridan College’s classical animation program, I’ve worked professionally in tv-animation for over 10 years, specializing in both comedy and action/adventure.

For a detailed resume please check out my LinkedIn profile.

When not storyboarding my face off I like to make comics, collaborating frequently with my brother Steven “Shaggy” Shanahan.

“Silly Kingdom“ our first self published comic (created and written by Steven) was nominated for two Joe Shuster Canadian Comic Awards in 2012. I also have comics published in critically acclaimed anthologies such as “Flight”(Ballantine Books), “Explorer” (Abrams Books), “The Anthology Project” and “Womanthology” (IDW Publishing).
