During my days at the Ontario College of Art I painted this water colour image of a crazed character poisoning his dinner guests. Years later when I was learning how to work with Adobe Illustrator I decide to use the painting as the basis for an updated digital version. Somewhere in between there I came up with the character The Madfatter, who eventually came to encompass my on-line presence. A quick explanation of the origin of the name “Madfatter” can be found on my corporate website.
So when I needed a graphic for my company Madfatter Inc. it seemed obvious that this character was indeed the Madfatter himself. I skillfully separated his digital head from his digital body and then used him to adorn my business cards and add some pizazz to the original website. The current iteration of the website uses some brand new illustrations of this illustrious character but these two images here, are where it all began.
