Today marks the six year anniversary of Sunnyshore Studio’s first documentary: Fanny, The Artist Who Made America Smile. It tells the inspiring story of Fanny Young Cory Cooney, one of the leading American illustrators, cartoonists and artists in the 20th century. Her life was an incredible testimony to what can be done when you refuse to accept your limitations. She had the rare gift of bringing humor out of misfortune and joy out of the shadows. Her captivating story told by herself, her son, Bob, and four grandchildren is heartwarming. Old video footage provides a snapshot of life in New York City, Montana and Washington state through the life of the “Artist who made America smile.”
