HALLO! I’M MAX.



 



I’m a freelance illustrator and graphic designer,
working primarily in the fields of editorial illustration and album artwork.
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 Kochkäse* wallower and part-time
grump trying to seize this weird thing called modern life
in my personal work like DAYMARE BOOGIE or THE PSYCHIC VAULT.
