Some facts about us!
COCORETTO is Ivan and Natalia. We are a Peruvian-born couple and team with training in fine arts, graphic design and photography.
We entered the illustration world by chance and stayed there since, enjoying doing art for picture books, novelty books and board books across the years. We like to build compelling and relatable environments with a strong graphic sense and bright, saturated colors.
We are glad to know our work makes kids giggle and smile, and thanks to some books we illustrated for Child's Play Intl having been translated and published in different countries, that even happens in different languages!
While we may have been working as illustrators for most of our career, since the publication of our very own first two books we also double as authors, getting down to work when something fun and quirky tickles our attention and sparks a truckload of images and ideas. That is actually how our first book as authors and illustrators was born. And our second.
We currently live and work in noisy Lima, the capital of Peru.
