Summary

Hello, everyone!

My name is Maksim Strelkov. I've been "Star Wars" fan for a long time and thanks to these movies I've became a solid comic book fan. In late 2012 I found that I like to coloring stuff, so I began practicing. Later, in May of 2013 I've experienced a break-up with a girl and I decided to practice harder to forget that. Well, I still remembering this, but now it's like a moment that pushed me to become a better man and colorist.

A couple more years of practice passed before I've taken my first coloring job (see below). So, I'm not a clueless rookie, but it's a dawn of my career and I hope it will go ahead.

In September of 2016 I moved to Varna, Bulgaria. I live here with my wife, who supports me on everything. She's awesome.

My other interests includes board games (huge fan of "Arkham Horror" series) and music. Favorite genres are thrash-metal, retro- and synthwave and Berlin School electronic music.

I also play bass, drums and a little bit keys.

    Message Sent by Nathan Frisson takes a turn off the well-traveled path that the comic book industry faithfully treads. It is a book that shows Earth as a dead planet thirty years in the future; destroyed by a group of villains who have proven themselves unstoppable. One survivor, a time-traveler known only as “Base” sends a message back in time to you, the reader, in an earnest plea to stop the apocalypse by changing the future.

    The book shows how Vestige -- a group of startup villains -- rose to power; becoming the most feared organization in human history. Base takes the protagonist (you), through the series of events that causes the destruction of the planet and the extinction of the human race. You will be given choices – decisions that will affect the outcome of the book and will ultimately determine the course of civilization.

    Welcome to the world’s first interactive comic book.

    United States of America
    September 2015 - February 2016

    This story is about a young boy by the name of Gage Hunter whose parents were killed in a car accident. After his parents’ funeral Gage was approached by a mysterious man asking him to come to an abandoned lighthouse to learn the real truth about his parents.

    Gage goes to the lighthouse where he learns about a secret organization called the "DNA", Department of Nightmare Affairs. Gage discovers that he belongs to the line of Nightmare Warriors, people of special pedigree that can travel into other peoples' dreams thorough their subconscious. Gage also learns that his parents got trapped in Dreamland, the place where all dreams occur.

    Gage ventures into Dreamland to find his parents and on this journey he meets his Dream Team, the team of nightmare-warrior assistants that live in Dreamland. The team consists of an intelligent but very attitudinal owl by the name of Hugo. Hugo is not just intelligent and attitudinal but is also scared of everything. Koala-San is another member of the Dream Team who tends to spend his entire time sleeping in his hammock or during very important missions. Koala-San is a ninja koala bear. The last member of the team is Doctor Klaus Notagan (pronounced: Not Again) whose inventions often fail, misfire or both. With the "help" of his Dream Team, Gage ventures into other kids dreams where he fights evil forces while continuously searching for clues about his parents disappearance.
