Marc Daniëls (De Marck) is one half of the artist duo De Marck & De Wulf, that works under the umbrella of Studio Max! on the popular philately comic 'Stam & Pilou'. After his education at the Saint Luc, Daniëls began his career drawing cartoons, illustrations and gags for socio-cultural publications and political cartoons for newspapers from Brussels. He also did commissions for the private sector, and drew gags with 'Cas & Joeber' for local and regional newspapers.
His collaboration with Rik De Wulf started with the 'Moya Moya' comic, and corporate illustrations. They began Studio Max!, and focused on the production of comics, commercial illustrations and comics workshops. In 1999, they were assigned by the Belgian philately to design two comics characters as the mascots of a new philately collecting club. This resulted in 'Stam & Pilou', the leading strip in the club's magazine and a series of albums. Together with their co-workers, De Wulf and De Marck are also responsible for a comics version of the TV family 'De Planckaerts'. De Marck is additionally the artist of the comic book series about Brussels painter and art dealer Geert van Bruaene, that is written by Danny Verbist and since 2011.
