Max creates humorous, vibrant and playful illustrations and animations with the aim of seeing the world through an alien’s eyes. Max has written and illustrated 10 published children’s books to date, his first being My Friends, which was created as his degree show project when studying Illustration at HCA.

Whilst a student, Max started working extensively with alternative children’s magazine Anorak on pattern designs and sequential narrative pieces, as well working for Moonpig cards, mainly thinking up terrible jokes.

He is influenced by a wide range of art and music such as Mario video games, Vic & Bob, Keith Haring and The Muppets. When not teaching or working on commissioned projects, Max is at home in Wales, making noisy music, looking at maps and eating biscuits.
