He worked for the publishing house Braun & Schneider , also drew articles for the German Youth by Julius Lohmeyer and regularly for the magazine Fliegende Blätter . His early reference to the Nazarenes later gave way to a general late Romantic view. In addition to Ludwig Richter, Moritz von Schwind influenced Vogel's work. Even Carl Spitzweg served as a model.

Illustrations by him appeared in 1881 in the Chosen Fairy Tales by Hans Christian Andersen , in 1887 in the Folk Tales of the Germans by Johann Karl August Musäus and in 1891 in Die Nibelungen by Gustav Schalk . In addition, the Hermann Vogel album was published in two volumes, initially from 1896 to 1899 .
