Author Biography - Kevin Patrick
If he wasn't spending all his time as an astronaut, formula one driver, millionaire philanthropist, renowned adventurer and famous masked Mexican wrestler, El Tigre, DOUGLAS HOLGATE would most likely fill the hours as a freelance illustrator, comic artist and toy designer based in Melbourne, Australia. Douglas has recently illustrated THERE'S A WORM ON MY EYEBALL! for Random House Australia, as well as creating and publishing his own comic books. KEVIN PATRICK is a freelance journalist and magazine publisher based in Melbourne. Like Douglas, he is a life-long comic book fan, and he recently curated HEROES & VILLAINS, a major exhibition on the history of Australian comics, for the State Library of Victoria. This dynamic illustrator-author duo are currently working on more ideas for their AMAZING AUSTRALIA series, following PREHISTORIC AUSTRALIA and AIRBORNE AUSTRALIA.
