Giles Andreae, David Wojtowycz - Author

About the Author

David Wojtowycz was born in Wisbech, Cambridgeshire. He inherits his unusual second name from his Ukranian-born father. David went to Goldsmiths College, University of London to study fine art and graduated in 1992.

David's distinctive style is instantly recognisable due largely to his popular greeting card range, Pigs Might Fly (Statics) and more recently, Flux Deluxe (Santoro Graphics). It was while David was working with Statics that he met Giles Andreae, alias Purple Ronnie and this led to their collaboration on their first book for Orchard Books Rumble in the Jungle.

David and Giles have teamed up again to create Dinosaurs Galore! - gloriously noisy dinosaur rhymes with vibrant, friendly artwork.

David lives in South London.


Giles Andrae is the author of My Grandson is a genius. He is the creator of Purple Ronnie, Britain’s favourite stickman. This phenomenally selling successful cartoon character has made Giles the country’s top selling poet and an icon of contemporary popular culture.
