The brilliant cartoonist who goes simply by Max, recently posted the above piece on his blog & tumbler. I first met Max in Barcelona at the big comics festival back in the late nineties. Max is a badass cartoonist. He’s done covers for The New Yorker, and made a number of award winning comics albums, mostly published in Europe, but some published here, like Bardin from Fantagraphics.
I love his style, and his stories are smart, fun, and pure comics. You can see some of his titles (like those below) at his blog.
Here’s a link to a short YouTube video of Max conducting a comics workshop.
