50 Comics Positives For 2014: Tony Fitzpatrick Announced His Move From Chicago To New Orleans
The painter and poet Tony Fitzpatrick isn't a cartoonist, but I'd argue his word/visual blends can be read very much like comics. In his best works, series of images on places like Ohio and his father's version of Chicago, Fitzpatrick tells in words and pictures the story of a place through feel and impression. He is one of the great figures of the great city of Chicago, which is why his announcement in April of a move to New Orleans is such an interesting piece of positive news. Despite the pull of the City With Broad Shoulders, Fitzpatrick seems called to a different completely world because it speaks to the way he makes art. May we all get to make a similar move at some point in our lives.
