Hello! I am Ilaria Perversi,
an author and illustrator passionate about whimsical stories and funny characters.

Born and raised in Milan, I have turned my passion for illustration into a vibrant and creative career.

After obtaining a diploma in Digital Animation, I decided to focus primarily onchildren’s illustration: drawing picture books, illustrated books, games, magazines, animated videos, interactive apps, and much more.

One of the most rewarding aspects of my work is the opportunity to share the magic of stories with others. That’s why I complement my role as an illustrator with that of a teacher: I collaborate with Wow Museo del fumetto (the Museum of Comics in Milan), conducting storyboard and animation workshops for children and teenagers. I also work with associations, bookstores, and libraries throughout Italy, offering workshops and illustration courses for adults, creative workshops for children, readings, and other activities.

I have a soft spot for plants (I own a total of 61!) and dream of adopting a chicken, my favorite animal.

Some of my clients include: Franco Cosimo Panini, Feltrinelli kids, Editrice il Castoro, Piemme, Clementoni, Headu, Pelledoca, Coccole Books, Pane e Sale, Pulce edizioni, Glifo edizioni, Verbavolant edizioni, Don’t Movie.

2022 – Exhibition “Che bèèèèllo!” organized by Imperfect Comunicazione at the Gam in Turin;
