Eric W. Schwartz (full Eric Williams Schwartz) is a freelance illustrator, animator, and artist of note, especially in the fandom.
Creator of Amy the Squirrel, Sabrina the Skunkette, Tabitha (Sabrina's little sister), R.C. Raccoon, Sheila Vixen, Tammy Vixen, Clarisse Cat, Carli Chinchilla, Darke Katt and a few others; and the webcomic Sabrina Online. He is also one of the most well-known and vocal activists for the Amiga operating system.
Eric's art has been published in multiple publications (beginning with Sabrina at See-CAD), and he also produces his own portfolios. He has also produced a number of furry animations of varying lengths.
Clarisse Cat is yet another one of Eric's many characters. In fact, along with Amy the Squirrel, she is one of his originals. She has short blonde hair, mostly orange fur with peach secondary fur, face-to-tummy and slipper-pattern feet, and wears a cerise pink T-shirt (matching her nose).
Tammy Vixen is Sheila Vixen's younger sister, another of Eric's characters.
Tammy's boyfriend was based on Eric's pet dog, Tor. When Tor passed away in 1998, Eric stopped regularly drawing Tammy in response. (One of the pictures Eric did to commemorate his pet has Tammy at Tor's grave.)
Eric is believed by some to be one and the same as the erotic toon artist TDK, and the struggle to prove the truth or otherwise of this assertion was for a while an extensive back-and-forth, involving Fans and Furs versus (mostly) anti-furries on forums such as Portal of Evil, CYD, and 4chan.
