About Max

Hi! I'm Max. Not Maxwell. Not Maximilian. Just Max.

But you can call me Maxie!


I'm a children's librarian and active freelance writer, scriptwriter, and children's author-illustrator from Baltimore, Maryland.

A lover of classic cinema, artful images, and genre concepts, I love refashioning broad influences,  threading together with music, humor, and wit to create charming, irreverent to evocative content for all ages.

As  a life-long and self-taught illustrator, I utilize bright, naive, Post-Impressionist styling, combining a mix of crayon, pastel, and digital paint for fantastical tableau in bombastic colors.
