David Fitzsimmons

Steven Mechler

David Fitzsimmons is a political cartoonist, columnist and blogger for the Arizona Daily Star. He produces a live radio program, "The Arroyo Cafe" which includes local celebrities and musicians. He presents a special radio show featuring books and the authors in town for the Tucson Festival of Books. It is a scheduled event at TFOB.

Fitz' cartoons are syndicated to more than 700 news publications. A Pulitzer finalist in 1988, his award-winning cartoons have drawn both fire and praise. Fitzsimmons also entertains audiences as a one-of-a-kind stand-up cartoonist and conference speaker. Known as the “Fastest draw west of the Potomac” Fitz has opened for PBS’ Mark Russell and has performed his “exceedingly silly” chalk talks in many conference meeting rooms, theaters, schools and clubhouses.
