Artist Spotlight: Max Wilkins

>>I’m Max and I’m a self-employed illustrator living and working in Rochester, NY. I have a background in architectural design and worked in that profession for awhile before making the leap to illustration. I learned to draw in architecture school and always kept a sketchbook during that time. When I landed my first job as an architectural designer I realized I wasn’t cut out for the profession so I decided to build an illustration business and made the transition to freelance shortly after. I’ve now been a full-time illustrator for over two years and have worked with some really fun clients. In my personal work, you’ll notice traces of my architectural background as well as magical elements, futuristic worlds, and mystical creatures. Some things that inspire me include going for walks, cute animals, and the paradoxical nature of reality.
