Maxime Lebrun likes baguettes, wine and cheese. He’s also French and illustrator for children’s and colouring books. Did I say he likes snails too? Yuck!
90’s cartoons and his dad - who was doing comics, sculptures, paintings on cars and motorbikes beside his daytime job, were a huge inspiration and filled his mind with the idea that being an artist sounds pretty cool.
Spending all his school time drawing in the margins of his books led him to go to a vocational education, where he learned Offset printing and publishing software (Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign). Then after getting a “baccalaureat” he went to an Art School in Epinal (Ecole Supérieure d’Art d’Epinal) to study a degree in Illustration. After finishing his studies in 2012, he decided to go live the adventure in England, trading frogs legs for Yorkshire puddings and red wine for ales.
Maxime joined the Bright family in May 2014. He works mostly digitally on Photoshop, sometimes animate a bit on After Effect just for fun and dreams about bringing his stories to life into the publishing world.
