Heath McKenzie
Author | Illustrator | Primary (Prep - Year 6)

Heath McKenzie is an author and illustrator who lives and works in a very small suburb in Victoria, and has worked with numerous clients and publishers to publish over 100 titles worldwide. His work is entirely freehand while also being entirely digital. He does his very best to keep it as ‘real’ as possible and tends to be successful at that more often than not. Along with illustrating (which he’s been doing professionally since 2003) titles such as ‘Seriously Do Not Open This Book’ and writing (which he’s been getting away with since 2013) titles such as ‘The Amazing Never-Ending Book’ and ‘1-10 Aussie Counting Book’ he’s also managed to sneak in the odd bit of design work along the way. 

Heath’s talks are best suited to primary school students, as he focuses on visual storytelling and how it defines a character design and then illustrating the text.
