My name is Maks, I am a Digital Illustrator and Art Director.
I graduated in 2018 with a First-Class Honours in Graphic Design from Oxford Brookes University, as well as an Art Direction short course at University of the Arts London (UAL) in 2022.

I tend to combine my design knowledge within illustration. The most important step for me is the development of a strong concept before any visuals come into play. I enjoy illustrating complicated emotions that are difficult to express through words otherwise.
