Campbell Whyte was born in Perth and has lived here for most of his life. He works predominantly in comics and illustration using a mixture of traditional media such as inks and watercolour that are then combined with digital elements.

His graphic novel series, Home Time is a distinctly Australian fantasy series set in Perth that has been met with critical acclaim.

Campbell has been awarded the DCA Young People and the Arts Fellowship, a DCA Development Grant an Australia Council Jump Mentorship and an Australia Council Development Grant. Campbell has just released his YA graphic novel, Home Time, which Shaun Tan described as “Beautifully realised, funny, smart, weird and surprisingly epic in scope, Home Time is also just plain brilliant.”

When not making comics, he teaches comics making at the children’s art school, Milktooth, that is run by himself and Elizabeth Marruffo.
