Merit Myers is an Illustrator and animator based in Brooklyn, New York. Born in Guatemala and raised in Saint Louis, Missouri by two writers, Merit grew up surrounded by well-told stories, their words, and their images. Both an enduring love for playing music at the family piano and his equally imaginative brother, with whom he could create and destroy, kept his soul well fed.
Today, his influences coalesce into one artistic practice. With a background in photography, he’s inspired by the ephemeral and the found, while his aural eye constantly observes his environment for people, objects, and stories to draw and record. At his core, he loves to draw and is happy drawing lines in the sand or snow.
Merit would love to meet you, so feel free to say hello!
