Red Furros interviews Blotch
The following is an interview we had with Blotch last Saturday 15 during the Further Confusion furry convention, who for those who don’t know, Blotch is the collaboration name of two very talented artists: BlackTeagan and Kenket. They have made very popular works like Dog’s days of summer and lately they’ve made cover art and illustrations for Kyell Gold’s books (Out of Position, Isolation Play). They have captivated the furry community’s interest with their unique watercolor style and fantastic sense of animal anatomy. If you are a furry and haven’t heard about them, you have probably been living under a rock.
They were kind enough to give us some minutes from their dealer’s room table at Further Confusion and this is what we asked them:
Red Furros: Who or what is Blotch?
BlackTeagan: Oh, it’s just collaboration between the two of us, you know, when we work together and I do the sketching and she does the painting…
BlackTeagan: And it is easier to work under one name when you do stuff together than doing it separately, so…it’s less confusing.
Red Furros: You two met on the fandom?
Kenket: Uh… yeah.
BlackTeagan: We met through friends who were in the fandom.
Kenket: Two furries… but not in like, a convention, so we met camping in the middle of the desert.
Red Furros: …you met camping in the middle of the desert?
BlackTeagan: Well… there were different camping groups, we were camping out with friends.
Red Furros: Oh, you like outdoor sports.
BlackTeagan: Yes, we have mutual friends that we met each other and after that, years later, we met together on a furry con.
Red Furros: So, when did you realize that you made a good team?
