Catherine and Sarah Satrun are Chicagoland illustrators and animators who specialize in hand drawn and digital 2D animation. They have thirteen years experience working for a variety of studios and clients, bringing ideas to life. Some of the animation projects include the intro to Middle School: Worst Years of my Life, Sesame Studio’s The New Neighbors, Seth Meyer’s The Awesomes, a Celtic concert, Mearra~ Selkie from the Sea, which aired across the country on PBS, and commercials such as Lucky Charms, Trix, and My Little Pony. They have also contributed sequential art for comics Aw Yeah Comics issue #12, Ladies Night Anthology: Sisters, and most recently Ed Siemienkowicz‘s Fucking 40. A few more projects are in development.

      Outside of animation, they enjoy creating heartwarming art. Their body of artwork is best known for strong female role models and a sense of empowerment. They strive to create artwork that inspires and brings happiness to the viewer. Their artwork also centers upon the themes of love, beauty, and innocence. They sell prints at comic conventions and on their online Etsy store. Their artwork can be found decorating children's bedrooms, homes, and offices around the world.

Whether working together or separate, Catherine and Sarah each bring passion for the art form to every job. They have loved to draw ever since they were old enough to pick up crayons. This dynamic duo makes a great team and is known for the energy they bring to any project. "Twin powers activate!"
