Max Cohen, a seventeen year old student at Waterloo. C.I. has been creating covers for almost a year for many different artists. He first started because he had some producer friends that wanted him to do some art for them, although he has done graphic design beforehand. Max has worked with, Universal Music Group, A$AP Mob/ AWGE, MTV& MTV Labs, Hoodrich Entertainment, Interscope Records, Murda Beatz, ILoveMakonnen, Smokepurpp, Killy, CMDWN, Nessly, Pi’erre Bourne, and more. Max hopes to work with many in the future, like Migos.
Max says one of his struggles is dealing with extremely picky clients. When the clients repeatedly keep asking for adjustments to the artwork it can be quite difficult. Despite the struggle, Max loves what he does. He plans to go to school for creative industries and he has a lot of pending work at the moment. Max’s favourite part of creating covers is being able to work with artists he listens to, “Making idols peers” he says.
Max’s favourite piece is his cover for the song “Killamonjaro” by Killy. Max first got in contact with the Toronto rapper through Instagram and is now staying in contact and creating more with the artist. The song is very popular and has hit 8+ million views on Youtube. Max also said it was a fun process to make.
Max has been very successful with his covers and we can’t wait to see what else he has in store for the future. You can keep up with Max through his twitter @mxxchn and his portfolio mxxart.tk
