How would I animate a drawing to just get that every so slight effect of shaking to imbue a black and white line drawing some life.

in your example, they used several drawings of the same image to create the effect (maybe around 3-5).

you could try something similar using photoshop to trace a few more still drawings by hand, depending on the complexity, it might not take too long. then just compile several drawings in to a short clip and loop it.

another way to get wiggly lines in ae would be to try an effect like turbulent displace or roughen edges and animating the evolutions property then adding the posterize time effect to make it a bit more jerky.
