artist profile - Shawnimals
Shawnimals was born in a town called Normal, Illinois. Shawnimals is Shawn Smith and Jen Brody. Together they form a design studio that creates off-the-wall yet lovable characters. Shawn and Jen turned Shawnimals from a fun hobby/college art project in 2001, into a full-fledged, honest-to-goodness (yet still incredibly fun) business they continue to run together.
Shawn manifests the Shawnimal characters, with Jen's power as co-seamstress, bookworm, lover of all animals, eater of anything with sugar, and all around nice person.
