- January 27, 2018
January 2018 marked the birthday of Max’s girlfriend, animator and autism advocate, Dani Bowman. As a present, Max decided to do a drawing of him with his better half. They initially met at an art show in Covina in June. This image has similarities to “Shaded in Space“. Based off a photo, Max and Dani are both hugging each other shaded “in space.” The shadows and dark hair blend into the cosmic background of the double-portrait. However, this image uses black and whites for the faces and minimal gouache colors for the clothing. Dani was delighted to receive this present when Max took her out to dinner to celebrate her birthday.
