Fitzpatrick studied at the Art Institute of Chicago. From 1911 to 1912 he worked as a staff artist and cartoonist at the Chicago Daily News. Joining the St. Louis Post Dispatch in 1913, Fitzpatrick served as its editorial cartoonist until 1958. His work and actions received criticism. In 1940 the cartoonist and several other Post Dispatch staff members were cited with contempt of court because they criticized the dismissal of an extortion suit against a State Representative.

In the spring of 1941 the New York City's Associated American Artists Gallery held its second exhibition of Fitzpatrick's cartoons.
