Talk to me!
David Creighton-Pester, aka. Wandering Bert, is an illustrator based in Hamilton, New Zealand.
Inspired as a child by picture books, animation, and all things arty, David spent endless hours drawing crazy characters and coming up with silly stories.
Now, as an adult, David is still inspired by picture books, animation, and all things arty. And he still spends endless hours drawing crazy characters and coming up with silly stories.
He is passionate about illustrating for children, especially picture books, and is particularly excited by the opportunity to bring fun, imagination, and fantastically silly scenarios that expand the realms of reality to kids around the world.
Aside from illustration, David also owns and creatively directs his graphic design company, Scorch Design, which has been in operation since 2009. David holds a Bachelor of Computer Graphic Design from the University of Waikato and Wanganui Polytech.
David is an SCBWI member and enjoys basketball, eating pie and stories about bears that steal picinic baskets.
He also enjoys speaking in the third person, apparently.
