A mini-interview with the ever illusive horror illustrator, Enoch Duncan
Q: Tell us a bit about who you are, where did you grow up, and your background as an illustrator.
A: I’m Enoch, I’m from West Virginia originally, but now I live here. I’ve always liked to draw, but I didn’t really start doing it seriously until I was around 20.
Q: What’s a typical day like for you in the studio? Where do you mine your unique sense of horror themes from?
A: If by studio you mean my apartment living room then sure. I don’t work on a consistent schedule. It’s kind of a “when I want, and when I feel like it.” And when I feel like it I’m making a horrible mess. I just like the way they feel to make. It doesn’t look comforting, but it feels that way to me.
Q: What are some of your biggest points of inspiration in both media and contemporary art?
A: Biggest points of inspiration? I’m not sure I can point out just one or two. Joel-Peter Witkin’s photography was a HUGE one.
Q: How are you looking to challenge yourself and your creative process in the next year?
A: I want to branch out into being more experimental with my work. I want to try new things, new textures, new materials to play with.
