ANIMATORS - Katie and Steven Shanahan - TCAF 2012

I discovered Katie Shanahan and Steven Shanahan through the Guys with Pencils podcast.  Their work is pretty awesome so I searched for their booth at TCAF 2012.  After a short wait in line, I got a chance to meet both of them and pick up copies of The Anthology Project 2 and Silly Kingdom, which is a project they both worked on.  Silly Kingdom is available for $10 in printed form and as a PDF download for $4 - and just in terms of a study in the art of comic facial expressions it's probably worth hundreds of dollars to any artist as a reference book.

Steven (Shaggy) Shanahan was also promoting - you should check it out.  It's a pretty nifty idea for quickly finding cool places in big cities.
