Encouraged to draw from childhood by his mother, Sherwin taught himself to draw people from reading Marvel comic books. At the age of 13 while spending long summer hours herding the family goats, he created his first comic strip, Clyde Quackgrass. Based on the life of a fictitious hillbilly, Clyde Quackgrass ran in 11 area newspapers.
While going to the University of Minnesota-Moorhead for Graphic Design, Sherwin began working as an illustrator at an advertising agency in Fargo, ND. Since 1988, Sherwin focused his talents creating professional corporate design and illustration work. In the fall of 2000, the comic book bug bit again while working on a comic book-style promotion for a client. His childhood love was here to stay and he has been committed to creating quality Christian comics ever since. Sherwin is currently part of the Community Comics crew. His credits include, Chosen Mortals, Luther, Anointed, Hero TV, Timepiece, Larson Street Kids and A Christmas Treasury.
Sherwin and his wife, Leah, live outside Minneapolis, MN in a small brick farmhouse. They do not own any goats.
