about

Thomas Pavitte lives & works in Melbourne, Australia and has been making stuff since 1985.

It took quite a few years later for that stuff to get good – below is a selection of projects, experiments, personal, school and commercial work that he is proud of.

Currently Thomas is working as a graphic designer and runs his Thomas Makes Stuff online store selling various prints and commissioned illustrations all over the world. In June 2013 he published his first book called “The 1000 Dot-to-Dot Book.” It is currently available to purchase online and in bookstores across The United Kingdom, Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Australia and New Zealand.
