This biography from the Archives of AskART:
During a career as a cartoonist, illustrator, author, teacher and painter, Vic Herman created many advertising characters such as "Elsie the Cow" for the Borden Company, "Johnny" for Philip Morris, "Winnie the Wac" for the United States Navy, and "Sad Shad" for Johnson & Johnson. He was the author of over 52 books and had cartoons and magazines in many national magazines. He was also a teacher for the Boards of Education in Los Angeles and San Diego.

Herman was born in Fall River, Massachusetts and lived in Kew Garden Hill, New York for the early part of his professional life and later moved to Del Mar, California. From 1940 to 1943, he was the Assistant Art Director for Warner Bros. Studios. During World War II, from 1943 to 1946, he was artist-field correspondent for "Yank Magazine" and "Stars and Stripes". From 1947 to 1972, he had his own company, Vic Herman Productions. During this time he was staff illustrator and correspondent for Hearst Features in New York; for Readers Digest; Holt, Rinehart & Winston and Golden Books. He also spent much time in Mexico,and was described by Frederic Whitaker in a 1974 "American Artist" article as an "ambassador with a brush".

His education included Yale Puppeteers in Los Angeles, the Art Students League in New York with George Bridgeman, New York Comic Illustration School with Lu Kimmel, Columbia University with Ed Johnson and Mount Sinai Hospital in New York with Dr. Samuel Penchansky.

Among his memberships were the American Society of Magazine Cartoonists, Society of Illustrators, Society of Children's Book Writers, Southern California Cartoonists and San Diego Press Club.
