This year’s Sheridan illustration program graduates are part of a new movement. Illustrationism is a collaborative effort that encourages illustrators and admirers to document and share their work through social media. Using the hashtag #illustrationism, illustrations are captured in an ever-growing online platform where the content creates and forms the concept ‘Illustrationism.’ See the grad exhibit for yourself April 19 at 99 Sudbury St. in Toronto.

Illustrators are the answer: For their 2011 ﬁnal project, the graduates of Sheridan College’s illustration program were asked to complete a survey of more than 100 questions designed to gain insight into their life, work and career aspirations. Once the questionnaires were collected, each student received one piece of the resulting data to illustrate. Drawing from the visual language of infographics, the works reveal a colourful look at the secret lives of illustrators. More examples can be found at the Graduation Show April 14 at the Burroughes Building in Toronto. For details, visit illustrate.sheridanc.on.ca
