"Come and Explore where all things Creative take all kinds of Shapes and Forms"





My name is Nomar Perez. I was born on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, in the city of Ponce, a unique city with new and Old Spanish colonial architecture and an amazing array of colors, sounds, and flavors. I'm and Kids designer, Illustrator and author that loves to create, explore all things creative! My Puerto Rican culture has influenced me throughout my artistic life. At the age of 10 my parents and my 5 siblings moved from my homeland to Ohio. All types of media, most especially animation, puppetry, and computer art, influence me. I studied computer animation and painting at Bowling Green State University in Ohio, and since then has worked as an illustrator on social expression products in the categories of humor, children's, and young adult. I have also illustrated numerous children's board books and school publishing books. Coqui in the City will be my first Author-Illustrator debut.
