Don Sparrow is a professional illustrator who trained at the University of Saskatchewan, before moving on to Canada’s prestigious Sheridan College, where he completed a post-graduate course in Advanced Illustration.
Known for his retro-comics-inspired illustration work in magazines and on television, Don has also completed several published comic works. These include the Ultimate Power Duo’s sci-fi opus “Ad Astra” and collections of his webcomic “Don’t Know (Maybe So)”. Don is presently hard at work completing a sequel to “Ad Astra”, this time handling the artistic duties completely on his own.
In 2016, Don was honoured as a winner of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s “Future 40” award.
August 2022 marked the debut of his latest publication, an original comic book short story called “Waiting for Wednesday”, set in the Saskatchewan of the late 1990s.
In his spare time, Don loves playing baseball, writing plays, and–of course–reading comics. He lives in his prairie home with his loving wife, and their sparkling children.
