About Me

Blessed to be working in comics since 2008!

Hi! I’m Kóte Carvajal. Thanks for visiting my site!
I colored/wrote comics and graphic novels from Chile to the world since 2008. My colors are part of different projects in USA, New Zealand, France and Chile. These years of work led me to win the Historieta’s Pepo prize as best Chilean colorist from 2021. Besides, as writer I published with talented Chilean artists seven graphic novels. One of these, El Cardenal (Liberalia Ediciones, 2018) won the IBBY Chile’s prize Colibry Medal as the Best Graphic Novel from 2018.

The comic book colorist path allowed me to be part of incredible projects like Mars Attacks The Human Condition (IDW, 2012), One Must Break (BRM, 2015), Clusterf@#k (Alterna Comics, 2016) and Megacenturions (Scout Comics 2022). Besides, to make team with great artists like Alan Robinson, Dexter Wee, Diego Toro and Fernando Pinto, among others.

In my writer facet I published YA Graphic Novels like Corazón Nerd (Anfibia, 2016), El Cardenal (Liberalia, 2018), Juan Valiente (Liberalia, 2019), Inmuno (Áurea, 2021) and All-Ages Graphic Novels like Príncipe Yu (Loqueleo, 2019) and Padre, Maestro y Amigo (Salesianos, 2020).  In adittion to this, in October of 2020 Juan Valiente was published in France trough Mosquito Editions being my first book in foreign language.
