about the artist

Antonio J. Rodas or more commonly known as "Tonio" can currently be found studying design at George Brown College or occasionally slurping ramen at various locations downtown on cold winter days.

From a young age was fortunate enough to be exposed to the traditional practice of neon sign-making and hand-drawn design through his father's work − specifically with the infamous Brothers Markle.

This influence fostered a great passion for the graphic arts and an appreciation for the meticulous nature of their craft.

Merula Creative, a moniker dedicated to his father's love of avian creatures, is the embodiment of that obsessive commitment to craft and it's secrets, and seeks to elevate brands and business with the same allure one might associate with Merula's titular feathered friend, the black bird.
