Life’s non-stop ups and downs and the considerable role money plays in them haunt the tragic career of the singer Willie John.
Growing up a tiny village in Southwest Germany, Beno Meli often had no other option than to pass the time away by drawing. This hobby turned into a passion that would influence his career significantly. On top of that, he had always been crazy about animated films and cartoons since he was little. As a result, it was clear from an early age how he would most like to earn his living. After high school, he studied communication design at RheinMain University of Applied Sciences. He is currently living and studying in Mexico, where he is attempting among other things to make new connections.
