BLOBS in MySQL

Hi
I need to create data base that stores huge amount of binary data.
My question is.
How MYSQL handles BLOB data, its stored like string of hex values that represent bytes of data , or its stored as is?
Reason that im asking is that hex string representation is not space efficient, and space efficiently is very important to my application.
Thanks.
