Sheridan is pleased to announce that Todd White, the L.A.-based visual artist who is celebrated internationally for his diverse artistic achievements, will be visiting the college on Wednesday, October 20 to share his story and engage in a Q & A session with Sheridan arts students.

White is perhaps best known as one of the creative minds behind SpongeBob SquarePants, the hugely successful animated television series. In the years since his contributions to that show, he has achieved international recognition for his unique and evocative artistic style. White was chosen from hundreds of artists as the Official Artist of the GRAMMY® Awards in 2007, the world's most prestigious music event, and in 2009, he was invited by Warner Bros. to contribute to a major design exhibition celebrating the 70th Anniversary of The Wizard of Oz. He was also selected to paint a portrait of the late Diana, Princess of Wales, for the Princess of Wales Memorial Fund, and had the unique opportunity to create a series of sketches, titled “Inspirations”, for Coca-Cola™.

White is visiting Canada in connection with the release of The Art of Todd White, a book celebrating the evolution of this very independent artist. He will be at Sheridan on Wednesday, October 20 from 11:00 am-1:00 pm in Room J102 at the Trafalgar Road Campus in Oakville.
