  1. I can personally vouch for Sherm. Apart from his amazing credits, and above his skill and experience, he is one of the most helpful persons I know. He’s enthusiasm is contagious, and his advice is sage-like. Bound to make a difference in your personal art pursuits, whether you are seeking story-boarding know-how, or other artistic avenues.
    I highly recommend checking already available influence on the web, not to mention assisting this Q&A session. The man knows!

  2. I’m kicking myself that I never asked Sherm Storyboard questions when I had the chance. In the late ’90’s I worked at the other end of Nickelodeon Animation Studios on the Angry Beavers and would wander around the Spongebob crew area, occassionally peeking in on Sherm and saying hi. I had so much respect for him, and was frankly a little intimidated. Looking back, I wish I would have talked with him more. Now we can all get the dvd’s!!
    Always super nice, Sherm probably would have hung out but I was too chicken. What a quality guy!

  3. fantastic interview! what a wealth of knowledge. thanks so much for your time, Sherm! hope to get to work with you some day!

  4. Wow great interview but I am cringing the entire time due to someone typing, starting computer, doing other things that cause noise. YIKES for your guest.


  5. Nice interview! I really enjoyed hearing Sherm’s history as well as his advice.

    Great job all around guys!

  6. Sherm is extremely nice in person, and has more than once taken the time with me to go over my storyboards and even quickly sketch out ideas or variations on how to improve my work. Class act all the way!
