Hello, I’m Maxime, known as Mux here and there. I decided at a young age to become a comic artist, did some stuff until life drove me away from it, so I ended 15 years later being a store manager at a Parisian supermarket, after trying my luck as being a cashier and being a bit too intense about this shitjob, haha !

As you can imagine with the title of this “creative space”, I especially like black and white drawing, so I was naturally enclined to be crazy about mangas when Dragon Ball landed in France in the 90s. I have now more nuanced taste than ever but, well, Katsuhiro Otomo and Mitsuru Adachi are still the G.O.A.T. for me ! And Bill Watterson too.

For some years I kind of quit drawing, but recently I’ve done more and more sketches here and there, or even complete pieces for friends, and got the will to get back for good in the craft ! But from now on I also would like to change style and learn new techniques, not having my previous “grand” goal anymore, I can be more adventurous and less pragmatic. Drawing less as a way to communicate and tell MEANINGFUL stories, more for pure personal enjoyment (and yours too I hope someday !), and for that I think I need to relearn from the start, studying the basics. It is the main reason why this very website was created, share my path to do pleasant things !

Video games are my second main passion, I’m deeply into it since the NES, and as I’m kind of a mad collector (of anything… oh, what a fantastic collection of pretty plastic bags in my basement, don’t tell my girlfriend… Oops), I have already too much game for a lifetime. Because I can be interested by any topic or generally curious by nature, I’m playing all kind of video games, with maybe a preference for plateform, adventure, fighting, shmups and arcade racers (the 90’s were my golden age). But of course, because time is precious, I had the great idea to consume it by speedrunning my favorite game, Yoshi’s Island (the Super Famicom one).

I streamed regularly on my Twitch channel while speedrunning or playing various games these past years, so now that I’m back into drawing, streaming some creation or training sessions is something I want to develop. As I love animals (hello from my doggo Kubo and my snowball Plue), I’m interested in getting better at drawing them for a start. Also my girlfriend will contribute sometimes, she wants to learn how to draw.

Well, I’ll share my main hobbies in a chill way here with you, hoping you will enjoy some of it at least !
