Marc Schirmeister, also known as Schirm (born February 6, 1958), is a classic arts illustrator, comic artist and animation storyboard artist that's been mostly a "behind the scenes" player in the furry fandom since its beginnings. His professional full and freelance works includes stints at Warner Bros., DIC, and Saban. He currently resides in Pasadena, California, USA.

Fandom involvement[edit]

An early art contributor to Vootie (the magazine recognized as the precursor for the early 1980's furry fanzines,) he is also credited for the creation (along with John Cawley) of the long running APA Rowrbrazzle. He edited Brazzle for the first nineteen issues, then gave up control to long-time science fiction, animation, and furry connoisseur, Fred Patten.

He is the creator of the Okanozians, a race of reptile-like centaurs with a very Fleischerian look about them. An advanced alien race of (wingless) centaur dragons, from the planet Okanozie.

Sci-Fi fandom[edit]

As a greymuzzle, Schirm was active in science fiction fandom from the early 1970's. His covers and filler art appeared in too many SF zines to count, and continue to do so. In 2006 he was awarded the Rotsler Award for his fanart by the Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society. He was also nominated for the 2006 National Fantasy Fan Federation Fan Art award.
