A Wicked History: Alexander the Great Scott Brundage

Five similarities between illustrator Scott Brundage and Alexander the Great:

  • Alexander studied with Aristotle just as Scott Brundage studied with Burt Silverman.

  • Alexander was rumored to have been the son of Zeus, who liked to play with lightening. Scott's father is an electrician.

  • They both enjoy(ed) olive oil, wine, and public bathing.

  • Both were fondly nicknamed, numerous times, using such names as "The two horned one" and "Lord Bryn".

  • Alexander was constantly surrounded by Greek soldiers. Scott lives in Astoria Queens.
