Famous mid-century American urban regionalist painting? Actually, it's a Looney Tunes background by Paul Julian . The cartoon is "Golden Yeggs." Lots more by Paul Julian here: https://one1more2time3.wordpress.com/tag/paul-julian https://one1more2time3.wordp...

The sheer heart, ingenuity, and heart that went into this is amazing. And nearly 8 minutes! (I wonder how long it took, and how many people it took to create.) Can ya believe I had never watched a Cubby Bear cartoon in it's entirety til now? Loved this post Sherm!

Rough storyboard panel from the opening scenes of the new SpongeBob Movie. SB loves his Krusty Krab snowglobe (which rains down Krabby Patties instead of snow). The shot lasts about 1.5 seconds in the movie. Thanks everybody for making the movie #1 :D

So I finally FINALLY got to see the SpongeBob movie in 3D! I had missed the studio screenings, and last weekend the local movie theater’s 3-D projecter died so I had to see it “flat.”. Anyway, I was thrilled beyond measure to see the movie in three amazing dimensions…the 3D really made it POP!

The movie was awesome. So glad it was 85% traditional animation! (In 3d no less)

I don't often support Kickstarter projects, but I've contributed to THIS one! Animation archaeologist Tommy José Stathes provided super-rare silent cartoon films to "Cartoon Carnival" -- a documentary about the silent-era pioneers of animated cartoons. Cartoons were WAY crazier back then!

Storyboard Artist
Introduction
Sherm Cohen is a cartoonist, writer and storyboard artist. He got his start in animation at Nickelodeon on The Ren and Stimpy Show as a character layout artist, followed by a three-year stint on Hey Arnold as storyboard artist and director.

In early 1998, Sherm Cohen was invited by SpongeBob's creator Steve Hillenburg to be part of the original SpongeBob SquarePants crew. Sherm spent the first season on the show as a writer, storyboard artist and director, then moved up to Storyboard Supervisor for the next three seasons of SpongeBob SquarePants. Sherm was also Character Designer and Lead Storyboard Artist on The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie.

Sherm has also storyboarded at Cartoon Network Studios and just completed two seasons of writing and drawing storyboards for Phineas and Ferb at Walt Disney Studios. Sherm is currently working as Storyboard Supervisor on "Fish Hooks," where he also appears on-screen every episode as Bud the pet-shop owner.

Sherm has created a number of instructional videos on cartooning, storyboarding and digital art techniques. "Storyboard Secrets," his instructional 10-DVD course on storyboarding, has been used to teach storyboarding worldwide, including at The School of Visual Arts. Sherm's newest book on how to draw cartoons, "Cartooning: Character Design" has been used in the curriculum at CalArts: California Institute of the Arts.

In 2011 Sherm received an Emmy nomination for his work as director on Disney's Kick Buttowski.
