David Roberts

ILLUSTRATOR

David Roberts studied fashion design at university, then made hats as a milliner, but always felt his true calling was in children’s book illustration. After jobs as a hair-washer and film extra, David’s first book was shortlisted for the Mother Goose Award and since then he has created the ‘Dirty Bertie’ character and illustrated works by fantastic authors such as Julia Donaldson, Jacqueline Wilson, and Sally Gardner for the award-winning Tinder. David says, “I always wear stripy socks, never plain!”
