I am a graphic designer, illustrator and wrestler living in Dublin. I have recently finished “The Alphabet of Wrestling” that may be of interest to Broadsheet
The Alphabet of Wrestling was a project I released weekly on social media, primarily Instagram, and features 26 illustrations of performers currently active in wrestling, it features wrestlers from all over the world and from all levels of fame in the wrestling business.

Real sporting giants.
