Illustrator Scott Brundage will appear Oct. 1 as The Harvey School’s first guest in this year’s Visiting Artists series. Brundage, who was born and raised in Danbury, Connecticut, and currently resides in Brooklyn, New York, has been recognized by Society of Illustrators 57, American Illustration 29 and Spectrum 19, 20. He won a Silver Award in Spectrum Fantastic Art 18.
Brundage, whose paintings have been seen in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Scientific American, Tor Books, AARP, The Weekly Standard, HarperCollins and many others, began working professionally while studying at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia after winning a design contest for a children’s sports helmet that was later created and sold by Bell Helmets.
Fine Arts Chair Rick Price said having Scott Brundage visit Harvey will offer students a unique insight into the life of a working illustrator. “Scott's experience working for well-known clients like The New York Times and Scientific American as well as projects in the children's book world will provide Harvey students with opportunities to explore one of the many ways artists can carve out a creative niche for themselves and make a sound living in our society."
The visiting artist will make a presentation to students in Harvey’s fine arts classes, showing them samples of his illustrations and speaking about his work and motivations at 11:30 a.m. in The Walker Center for the Arts.
