Don Sparrow is a mainstay of the Saskatchewan arts scene, and a tireless booster for Canadian pop culture. There's very few well-known Saskatchewan events that Don hasn't been involved with.
In music, Don has created artwork and branding for the Gateway Festival, Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra, Belle Plaine, Blake Berglund, Zachary Lucky and many more.
Theatrically, Don has partnered with the Saskatchewan Native Theatre Company and Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan for their production of Othello.
On television, Don's work was featured in an episode of Dateline NBC.
Don is perhaps best known for his role in Saskatchewan's comic book scene. He has appeared at comic conventions across Canada, including every year of the Fan Expo Regina and Saskatoon Comic and Entertainment Expo.
A devoted husband and father, Don's enthusiastic contributions to the Saskatchewan arts scene make him a worthy candidate for CBC's Future 40.
