About The Illustrators

Enid currently lives in México city and has his Master's in Artistic Production at the Autonomous University (MaPA) of the State of Morelos, México. His graphic work mostly explores the idea of the future, presenting us with the perception of a fore-coming age of ruins, the morning after the great disaster: the end of humanity as we know it. In this obsession to inquire about cataclysm, Enid offers us visions of a conglomerate world, a melting pot of cultures located on a planet in misery; his drawings describe a Third World futurism. Before becoming a full artist, developing his skills as penciller and inker, Enid worked as a colorist for Delcourt. In 2018, he finished his first graphic novel as an author, Someday Comes Paradise, commissioned by an L.A. private studio. Currently he is working for Delcourt, Humanoids, and Sergio Bonelli publishing house in Italy.

Born in Caracas Venezuela, Giovanni attended the Caracas institute of Design to study Illustration and also took sculpting classes at Centro Art with Illustrator and sculptor Jesus Pastore. After graduating from the Kubert School in 2010, Giovanni began working for Tell-A-Graphics doing projects for PS Magazine under the great Joe Kubert and as a background artist for various artists in the industry. His work has been published by Marvel (X-men Blue, X-men Gold), Dynamite entertainment (Pathfinder-Tarzan, John Wick, James Bond), BOOM! studios (Eternal), Darkhorse presents ( The White Suits. He has also worked for a successful kickstarter project called Bleedback. He has been teaching at the Kubert school since 2012.
