Shermy of the Peanuts Gang (Independent Comics) Custom Action Figure
Shermy of the Peanuts gang, Charlie Brown's oldest friend. With the distinction of appearing in the very first strip and setting the tone for oddball comment to come. Made from a Linus head and Charlie Brown winter coat body and hunting hat. Schulz drew two types of heads: round and squash-shaped. I had to widen Shermy's skull with green putty to make him look older. I also inserted thick card into his legs to make him taller. His hair is plastic string fitted piece by piece on end for a crew cut. The baseball was luckily a Christmas ornament. The bat is made from a pen. I want each Peanuts character to have an iconic prop, and nobody else had baseball equipment. I painted him and Dullcoted, then drew on the features with an .003 art marker. Shultz named Shermy after a childhood friend, but phased him out, saying, "I only used Shermy when a character needed someone boring to talk to." Hey, a boring friend who listens - pure gold
