Today I am going to tell you about an artist who has become my inspiration not only due to his art, but because of lot more reasons. I got to know about Sherm Cohen a few months ago, after I found his twitter link somewhere and started following him. He is among the very few artists I have known who actually 'talk'! You can easily find hundreds of artists with one directional Feed streams posting their work and experiences. But Sherm has really defined what a 'conversation' mean. He sits somewhere in Los Angeles in the middle of numerous drawing jobs none less than SpongeBob SquarePants, Phineas & Ferb and more. Still he continues to stay in touch with a long list of fan-following not only by reading what they say, but also through response whenever possible. I have seen Sherm help many followers by answering to their curious questions coming from all parts of the planet. Dozens of videos could be found on YouTube with him sharing tips and tricks about character design and storyboarding that everyone will find useful. I am glad to know an artist like him who has been serving the animation industry in this unique way. (Lastly not to forget that this wizard of pencil has even written a book titled Cartooning : Character Design from Walter Foster Publishing, Inc.)
