Introducing Max Felix, author of Animal Book- Coloring Book.

“Outskirts Press made the publishing process easy and simple. My questions were quickly answered, and my concerns promptly addressed. Big “thank you” to the entire team.”

Max Felix is a teenager with autism  spectrum disorder, who accidentally discovered his artistic skills very early in life, at a time when he had lost many cognitive aptitudes, including the ability to express himself verbally. Drawing then became his only way to interact with others. Although Max later recovers the spoken language, he continues to develop the art form of drawing as a preferred means of communication. Animals have always filled his imagination. He used them to learn to count, and to make sense of the world around him. His narratives are picturesque. His artworks, which are sometimes autobiographical and sometimes fiction, are always a stage for his animal friends. Pen and paper are his tools, his take on nature is black and white. With Animal Book, Max invites you to discover his world, and to color it your way.
