“Hi there, I’m David (a.k.a. Wandering Bert). I was born in Hamilton, New Zealand, in the 80’s, and is also where I currently live and work.

Inspired as a child by picture books, animation, and all things arty, I spent endless hours drawing crazy characters and coming up with silly stories.

Now, as an adult, I’m still inspired by picture books, animation, and all things arty. And I still spends endless hours drawing crazy characters and coming up with silly stories.

I’m passionate about illustrating for children, especially picture books, and I’m 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, I own a graphic design company, Scorch Design, which has been in operation since 2009. I hold a Bachelor of Computer Graphic Design from the University of Waikato and Wanganui Polytech. I am also a SCBWI member.”
