The Embarrassment Show workshop is an approach to creative thinking developed by Dutch creative director, curator and artist Erik Kessels. Originally conducted with a group of 2nd year photography students in Switzerland, the Embarrassment Show has developed into a travelling exhibition. Earlier in May, the project was brought to Sheridan College’s Trafalgar campus for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th year Illustration students. Kessels led a three-day workshop and oversaw the production of the final exhibition with Sheridan Illustration Professor/Coordinator Joe Morse.
Sheridan’s Bachelor of Illustration coordinator Joe Morse is receiving high praise and international recognition for his illustrations in the Folio Society’s edition of Toni Morrison’s critically acclaimed novel Beloved. Morse’ illustrations were recently featured in UK blog “Design Juices“. The book has also been highlighted on Flavorwire, the Creative Review Blog, Mental Floss and more.
