Kerascoët is the joint pen name of the French illustrators, comics and animation artists Marie Pommepuy (born 1978) and Sébastien Cosset (born 1975).[1]

A married couple, they met while attending the Olivier de Serres art school. They chose their pen name in 2000 after the hamlet of Kerascoët in Névez, Brittany where Pommepuy grew up.

Kerascoët have worked on numerous bandes dessinées as well as the animated television series Petit vampire and in advertisement. Several of their comics have been published in English by NBM Publishing, to critical acclaim.[2][3][4] They were nominated for an Eisner Award for their comic Beautiful Darkness,[5] and for the Ignatz Award for Outstanding Graphic Novel for Beauty.[6]
