Even/Odd Sudoku by Thomas Snyder

[This puzzle comes from the 2022 US Sudoku Grand Prix round. The majority of the sudoku variants had visual “eight” themes as well as interesting logical paths. This Even/Odd Sudoku uses a symmetrical set of even/odd cells in only a few rows and columns in an “eight” shape to highly constrain the grid. I deliberately tried to avoid giving any eights on the outside frame of the grid.]
