Fitz Fitzpatrick is an illustrator and designer based in Sydney, Australia. Since graduating from ACU with a Bachelor of Visual Arts and Design he’s been working as a designer in several creative agencies in and around Sydney, where he’s won several web design awards.
‘Currently he is a senior designer at Holler. Although design is a passion of his, he still has quite a soft spot for illustration and is always working on little illustrative side projects, whether they be personal or freelance. He’s an avid comic book reader, and this love of comics books and the style that comes with it, is present throughout his illustration work.
This has all lead to him releasing his first children’s book, which is an app available on iPad. The book, Timmy Tompkins’ Awesome Fantasy Comic Book Superhero Adventure! was entirely written, illustrated and designed by Fitz and built by Canadian developer Storypanda. An enormous collaborative effort was involved, with the two parties working from either side of the world. Fitz’s other side projects include a series of prints of famous film characters represented in 8-bit, for which he had an exhibition of last year, and are available as prints from his store.’
