Neil Brigham began drawing at a very young age, spurred on by his kindergarten classmate’s encouraging words for his early work, “Boat in Water.” Some years later, he put aside the finger paint and crayons while he completed a Masters of Art in illustration from Syracuse University. It was there that he really learned to scribble under the guidance of David Passalacqua and Murray Tinkleman. Brigham’s exposure to guest faculty C. F. Payne, Bunny Carter, Richard Egielski, Rudy Guiterrez and others helped to shape and facilitate his growth as an artist. In addition to his illustration projects, Neil spends time making prints as a member of the Zea Mays Printmaking Studio in Florence, Massachusetts. His work has been recognized by the Society of Illustrators and Society of Illustrators Los Angeles. His block prints can also be found in the permanent collection of the Boston Athenaeum.
