Max Ink has been writing and drawing his own style of comic books for nearly four decades. He's created comics in a variety of genres-- fantasy, science fiction, magical realism and even a series featuring anthropomorphic super heroes.

These days, Max's style of choice is a down-to-earth comic series called BLINK, which is set in his adopted hometown of Columbus, Ohio. The series features a mix of 20-something friends who live, work and basically just hang out and talk, living their lives to the best of their ability and enjoying themselves. BLINK has been described as "real life on the printed page," as well as "philosophical," "wildly entertaining" and "a wonderful slice-of-what-I-wish-my-life-was-like" kind of comic.

In 2011, Max published his first BLINK graphic novel, “So Far,” which was a finalist for the SPACE Prize (twice), and is taking his time writing and drawing the follow-up, “So It Goes.” He also took some time off in 2014-15 to play around with a meta-fiction-auto-bio web comic, “Thinklings.” In 2016, he began collaborating with his (then girlfriend/now) wife, Flor de Canela, who's a gifted artist and writer. Flor's created her own humor webcomic series, "Stuck-Up Unicorn" and is developing a new surrealistic semi-autobio series, "The Umbrella Chronicles." As of 2018, Flor has become his official tone artist on the BLINK series. Together they create commissioned works as FRENCH TOAST Studios.
