Meike Werner – illustrator, comic artist and coffee nerd
Meike’s love for drawing began when her parents bought her a little whiteboard and a set of wax crayons at the age of two. After that, she drew on every scrap of paper she could find, even into her mother’s cookbooks. As soon as she could read, she immersed herself in comics from Donald Duck to The Peanuts and Garfield. Throw in Disney movies and the occasional cartoons and she’d be happily sitting at her desk drawing her favourite characters. And she hasn’t stopped since. Meike is still drawing fanart of her favourite movie and tv characters. But she is also drawing her own characters and has finished her first short comic titled Last thoughts of a dead man.
In her works Meike always tries to tell a story. Whether it’s through an illustration, a custom designed logo or a hand-lettered quote. Her goal is it to make you smile, provoke you to think or make you take a step back from the buzzing of everyday life. That’s what she is striving for every day.
When Meike doesn’t draw, she relaxes with a good book, bakes or drinks good coffee.
