HALLO! I’M MAX.



 



I’m a freelance illustrator and graphic designer 
enjoying creating artwork for LPs and gig posters, skate- and surfboards,
as well as for newspapers and magazines. 
However, I’m basically curious about everything
that needs some smart and concept-driven or simply atmospheric imagery.

Apart from that I’m a highly trained Pasta glutton and over-worried dog parent,
a landlocked ocean lover and part-time grump trying to understand this weird thing called modern life in my personal work like DAYMARE BOOGIE or THE PSYCHIC VAULT.

SOME FACTS ABOUT ME





Born 1989 in Aschaffenburg, Germany.

My favorite bands include Idles, Ceremony, Thou, Pearl Jam, Pist Idiots, Escapado, True Widow, Amenra, The National and Emma Ruth Rundle.

I’m well versed in spending time in a German Wirtschaft.

I’m constantly struggling with being landlocked. 

Wes Anderson and Hayao Myazaki are my favourite film makers.

I’m always acquiring more books than I could ever read.

I’m living with a black & a white dog.

Glass is my favourite book of the Dark Tower Series.

Unfortunately I never was in a band nor can I play any instrument at all.

My dream workspace is a hut on a hill. (EDIT: or in walkable distance to waves.)
