Since retiring from his advertising and graphic design career, Jim has been promoting his three Maui condo rentals via the internet.
To satisfy his creative appetite, he joined the Honolulu Printmakers. In a workshop environment Jim has learned printmaking techniques including engraving, etching, aquatint, embossing and photogravure.
In March 2007, the Center for Contemporary Printmaking in Norwalk, CT held their Sixth Annual Miniature Print Biennial in which Jim was awarded third prize. 130 works were displayed out of 548 entries from 180 artists living in 18 countries. The judge was the esteemed David Kiehl, curator of prints at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City. The show got an upbeat review in the Arts and Entertainment section of the April 29, 2007 Sunday New York Times. The reviewer described the print "Fantasy Hibiscus," as a "lush, colored photogravure of a flower by Jim Egan from Hawaii, striking a balance between mastery of technique and innovation."
