Van Eenoge Wins Society Gold

Pieter Van Eenoge's illustration for the Bokrijk Open Air Museum in Belgium received a Gold Medal in the Institutional category from the Society of Illustrators. The piece is based on the Game of Goose, an early board game similar to Snakes & Ladders. The piece measures 5 x 3.5 meters and hangs in a 200-year old barn situated on the museum grounds where craftsmen and interpreters dressed in period costume demonstrate what life was like in rural Bokrijk.

Pieter traveled to New York to attend the Illustrators 55 Exhibition & Gala in January. His poster for the Boekenbeurs 2011 Book Fair in Antwerp was also on display as part of the Institutional category, with both pieces appearing in the Society of Illustrators 55 annual. Congratulations Pieter!
