What ‘hood are you in?
I live in North York in Toronto, but because I am a student, I have been spending my year in Waterloo at university.
What do you do?
I am an illustrator specializing in sports graphic design. I basically create illustrations that convey a certain message about a sporting event. This is a hobby of mine, as I am currently a student studying Business (BBA) at Wilfrid Laurier University.
What are you currently working on?
I am currently trying to be as active on my Instagram as I used to be. The Raptors are having a great season so I’m trying to keep up with my illustrations. At the same time, I’m always doing commissioned work, with a few major projects. This year, I’m set to do a series of NBA Canada social media graphics that will be posted throughout the year.
Where can we find your work?
All of my non-commissioned work can be found on my instagram, @mffdjky. All of my major projects and commissioned work can be found on my website, madrotman.com. You may also often see my work around social media on NBA Canada and TSN.
