I first became aware of Jeremy Enecio several years ago as I was perusing through mediocre, run of the mill artists on a website known as ConcepArt.org when out of nowhere, like an electric apparition, his work appeared. I had found a needle in the haystack and it had punctured me deeply. I felt a thorough connection to the small showing that he had presented there and though I had only just discovered this treasure of art I felt it had been with me for a very long distance, perhaps stretched thin at the edges of my subconscious finally brought into focus through Jeremy’s talented hand.

Jeremy’s style is firmly rooted in an illustrative jurisdiction but his talent lies in his ability to push that genre forward, to bend the realms of it’s principles and arrive on the opposite side though appearing the same. The work he presents to this dimension is a medium between fine art and illustration.

It’s frustrating to me that this should even be a conversation we’re having about why design competitions are wrong, but I think it needs saying again, especially for the benefit of illustrators who are just starting out in this industry.
