(From bio on his website: http://www.maximdalton.com/About.html)
"I'm Maxim Dalton, an illustrator living in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I've been illustrating since I was two or three, just like any other kid, and began to take it seriously at the age of thirteen. ln the last twenty years I've been involved in several projects like drawing humor strips for a local magazine, creating animations for the TV and doing some editorial illustration. I'm very open-minded and my interests are very dissimilar, but I'm not going to enumerate them all because I don't want to bore you. I just may say that I like to write, oil paint, take photographs, play music and read about animal behavior. I speak five languages and lived in Barcelona and Paris. I also spent some time in New York. I feel comfortable when I find myself surrounded by mid century objects and imagery, and they all inspire me to do the best thing I know: to draw. Now, you can call me Max."
