Eloise Renouf’s Etsy shop features lovely prints of graphic leaves, trees and creatures. Her work quickly demonstrates her passion for nature. Her elegant use of texture and color make work that is instantly recognizable as her own voice. One of the unique strengths in Renouf’s pieces is her ability to create pattern-centric compositions that stand alone successfully as prints.
Not only does she sell work through her Etsy shop, but she has collaborated with companies like Cloud9 Fabrics, Land of Nod, Uppercase Magazine and Target. Some people have even gone so far as to use her work for tattoos!

I was turned onto artist Enrique Alcatena’s work by my friend Jon Vinson(DUB Comics). Alcatena is well known in his native country of Argentina and has garnered international respect for his dark surrealist art. There are many comics by Alcatena still unpublished and untranslated here in the States. Hopefully some independent(or major) publisher picks up the slack soon and gives us some English language editions of his work.
In the meantime, you can still track down some of his earlier work in back issue bins, such as Predator vs. Judge Dredd and various Batman comics, including The Batman of Arkham Elseworlds Special with writer Alan Grant.
You can read more about the art of Enrique Alcatena in a recent article The Comics Exotic by the aforementioned Jon Vinson.
You can find Enrique Alcatena’s Art & Comics Facebook page here.
For more comics related art, you can follow me on my website comicstavern.com – Andy Yates
