He was a formally trained artist who became known for his pin-up girl illustrations, magazine illustrations and art instruction. He contributed heavily to many of the “how-to-draw” book series published by Walter Foster over the years.
Fritz also drew illustrations for several periodicals including Esquire, Saturday Evening Post, Redbook, and Colliers. In his later years until his death in 1979, Fritz worked as an art instructor.
