Flagler College alumni and Fall 2013 BFA Candidate, Brianna Angelakis, has been selected as one of three winners for the IlluXCon Scholarship for 2013 which are scholarships awarded to the very best students in the field. The scholarships are open to any student attending an accredited institution to study art; this includes ateliers. Judges included Sarah Robinson, Art Director at Paizo Publishing; Joe Shoopack, Art Director at Sony Online Entertainment; E.M. Gist, Artist and Instructor at the Watts Atelier; Don Maitz, Artist; and Alison Eldred, UK Agent representing the top British science fiction and fantasy artists.
Brianna will receive a full-paid scholarship which includes airfare/travel, hotel, and food in order to attend IlluXCon 6, held in Allentown, PA from September 11 - 15.
According to the website, IlluXCon is a multi-part experience. It’s an exhibition, where over 1,000 traditional media works are on display; it’s a gallery opening, where all exhibiting artists are present and their displayed work is available for you to purchase; it’s an international symposium, where ideas and experiences are shared across a wide range of technical approaches, artistic backgrounds, and continents; and it’s a place where students and artists at all levels can make the personal, professional, and creative connections necessary to find their own artistic path.
A hearty congratulations goes out to Brianna from the whole department!
