Collaborated with author, Aneta Torchia, to craft their vision into something they really loved! Took on the duties of character designer, typesetter and layout designer. Had to gather pages upon pages of reference material for the stuffed animals alone! ?? It was a lovely project with an understanding and exceptional client. This book explores the challenge to keep your home from becoming overwhelmed with clutter and messes caused by too many stuffed animals. This fun and relatable story helps children understand the importance of limits while encouraging them to take responsibility for cleaning up their stuffy messes. https://maxcoutard.com/the-great-stuffy-takeover-launches/

This is a fun project about a young girl dealing with learning disabilities and overcoming them in her own ways. It’s a great read and I am honoured to have been able to illustrate this book from cover to cover.

For Inktober 2019, I challenged myself to create small looping animations using the tools I had on hand (Ipad, Rough Animator and Animate CC) and throughout my busy life. It really was a level up due to my long stint of inactivity beforehand.

Hey Max. Would you be interested in a small sample illustration test. These are the ones that would be typical of the project. We usually stick to around 30-60-90 minutes on these. Just to see if our mutual expectations align. Project starts this week! (If you feel it fits, and your execution fits within our style guide, we'd be good to set up a contract.)

I know you can do the work. Just needs to fit your expectations as well. :)

If you're interested, I could send you a simple sample brief for a typical illustration.

This project requires many individual small illustrations that have to fit within our style guide, more or less. Not difficult for you. I'm sure.

Thoughts??

While I'm flattered to be considered, I need a deposit to reserve my time & pay for any assets needed to knock this out of the park for you.

About Me:
An experienced illustrator specializing in children's books, comics and cover artwork. My style consists of bright colours, surreal imagery and charming yet sometimes, grotesque characters.

I also bring over 8 years of print design experience; from brochures, puzzles to prototyping new products, these experiences has afforded me a real sense of practical design.

My approach is listening intently, disseminating technical knowledge and anticipating needs, so we're on the same level when working on a project.

Can't wait to make something amazing together!
