Cover Reveal: The Quest Diaries of Max Crack

Jules Faber is a cartoonist, caricature artist and illustrator.

In addition to his WeirDo books, Jules has illustrated The Kaboom Kid and The Leo Da Vinci series.
He is well-known for conducting regular workshops at schools and learning centres for those wanting to learn more about caricaturing, comic strips, comic book layout, scriptwriting, storyboarding, animation and general cartooning.
Jules has served three terms as President of the Australian Cartoonists Association, the world’s oldest cartoonist’s organisation. But most of all, he loves illustrating children’s books.

The Quest Diaries of Max Crack is the first book he has written and illustrated, and is just the beginning of Max’s adventures! And today we are delighted to reveal the cover of this exciting new series, due out the 27 August 2019.

The Quest Diaries of Max Crack is presented as Max's diary, and it's a visual feast: full of speech bubbles, doodles, asides, highlighted words, and crossed-out words. It's a stream of visual and verbal consciousness and captures the intriguingly chaotic mind of an 11-year-old perfectly.
Jules Faber is a multi-award-winning cartoonist and illustrator. He has published numerous comic strips, worked for various newspapers, taught cartooning, been in multiple art exhibitions and has worked as an animator on a Disney show.
