Heath McKenzie


Heath McKenzie is a best selling illustrator specialising in stylised, rather cartoony digital illustration (though it’s all meant to look as ‘not digital’ as possible!)

What other jobs have you had?

Disney Store ‘cast member’…a bit of office work, but only for a few months!

What themes are recurring in your work?

Cartoony children, animals and creatures. A tendency to sneak in personal references from my own life. Work tends to sway between being ever so slightly dark and creepy around the edges, or very cute and pretty, generally a mix of the two.

What have been the highlights of your career?

Getting one picture book published was a highlight, having many more published since then is brilliant! Becoming an ambassador for the Premier’s Reading Challenge and being heavily involved in designing the 2011 campaign.

Where have your works been published?

Numerous countries around the world – Australia, New Zealand, USA, Brazil, UK.

What are you passionate about?

My ideas…and as such, fighting for them as and when necessary!
