It has been a good week!
The image above was selected as a finalist for the American illustration 38 competition, AI is the most prestigious illustration competitions for “cutting edge” illustration work.
It was one of only 413 images selected from over 7,000 submitted.
This year’s distinguished jury included: Chris Brand, Crown Publishing; Hannah K Lee, The New York Times; Janet Michaud, Politico; Dennis Huynh, Buzzfeed; Maria G. Keehan, Smithsonian; Aaron Rinas, Art + Mechanical; and Marianne Seregi, National Geographic
I also had a blushingly wonderful write up in the Winston Salem Journal by Tom Patterson for my solo show at Delurk Gallery in Winston Salem including this quote;
“Winston-Salem native Scott Eagle is one of North Carolina’s most skilled and thematically ambitious artists, as well as a professor of painting and drawing at East Carolina University’s School of Art and Design. His own work spans multiple mediums in its richly imaginative exploration of personal spirituality through imagery derived from mythology, art history, his dreams and his experiences in the waking world.“
