Colorful watercolors from Herman Mejia

Hermann Mejía started drawing very young, studying comics, including MAD Magazine, that had made their way to Venezuela from America – although he spoke no English at the time. He cites artists such as Sergio Aragonés (author of the wordless Groo the Wanderer strip) and Mort Druckeras as favorites.

He started collecting comics at age 13, and received his first artists’ commission at 15, painting promotional graffiti for musical acts in Caracas. He studied at the Caracas Design Institute (Instituto de Diseño de Caracas), and from there went into commercial art, including the design of a series of Venezuelan postage stamps commemorating the Pope.
