Biography

Vorontsov was born on July 1, 1959 in Petropavlovsk, Kazakhstan. From 1985 to 1991, he worked for the newspaper “Leningradskie Iskry" ("Five Corners"), during this period he also worked as a cartoonist for the newspaper “Chas Peek” (“Rush Hour”). In addition he contributed to magazines such as “Balamut,” “Bus” as well as many others.

Vorontsov is a member of the Union of Artists of Russia, and a participant and winner of numerous exhibitions of cartoons in the country and around the world - Turkey, Japan, Belgium, Bulgaria, Lithuania and Estonia.

Works

Vorontsov’s first book was a coloring book entitled "Tales of cat Vaska," released by Lenizdat. Other works include "Fairy Tale" by Daniil Kharms, "Who?" by Alexander Vvedensky (poet) and the collected fairy tales of Gianni Rodari. In 1996, the book "Entertaining Munchausen“ was awarded second place in the All-Russian contest "Book Art” held in Moscow. In 2009, The Surprising Adventures of Baron Munchausen by Rudolf Erich Raspe was again awarded in the "Art of the Book" contest. In 1997, the book "Small But Proud Birdies" was awarded in the same first degree. In 2003, Nikolay Vorontsov was awarded "Man of the book" for "Samson and Roberto" by Ingvar Ambjørnsen published by Azbooka Publishing House. In 2008, he published "Shkotlivaya encyclopaedia" where Vorontsov was credited as a writer. In 2011, his English-Russian Dictionary won "The image of the book" competition.

Vorontsov often uses collages, postmodernism and quotes from books and films in his feature illustrations in an effect to be acknowledged as a co-author of the written work in the tales.

О себе

“В работе над книгами мне всегда помогает маленький мальчик Коля Воронцов, который сидит внутри меня на маленькой табуреточке. Он подсказывает, смеется, сопит, одобряет, сомневается, вздыхает, засыпает от скуки, просыпается, веселится, шкодничает. Иногда говорит “Будь здоров!”, когда я чихаю.”
