If a picture is worth a thousand words, then Eraklis "Herc" Petmezas' wordless comics are worth at least a million each. Wordless comics are a more complicated art form than face value might lead a reader to believe as you must rely solely on your art to get your story across rather than using dialogue to move your comic along.
I first met Herc while volunteering at HeroesCon, but really got to know him attending the weekly Sketch Charlotte meetings. Herc founded Sketch Charlotte as a group intended to welcome artists, writers, musicians, and creative types in general and it has become an environment fostering friendship, collaboration, and creativity. It's a place that members call home, a comfortable place to gain insight and reflection. I've been going to Sketch meetings since Fall 2010 and in that time I've made lifelong friendships, found love, and an outlet for my creativity among plates of fried food and endless glasses of sweet tea.
I collaborated on my first mini-comic, Bear-ied Treasure, with Herc that will be included in the 2011 Dollar Bin Assembled Anthology (available at HeroesCon!). I wasn't sure how to script a comic at all, but even more so with a wordless comic. Somehow my email script turned into a three page mini-comic exactly how I had envisioned it.
