If you're in the process of planning your week ahead then here is an event that shouldn't be missed. This week sees the return of Pick Me Up
, the UK's number one annual contemporary graphic design art fair and festival taking over London's Somerset House
from Thursday 22nd March - Sunday 1st April
The fair showcases some of the best graphic artists, cartoonists and illustrators from the UK and beyond with original artwork available to purchase from just Â£10. Some of our favourite artists and collectives will be showing and hosting creative workshops including NoBrow
, Beach London, Antony Burrill
to name a few.
Alongside the exhibition, there will also be plenty of special events that you can take part in such as NoBrow's Manic Monster Drawathon
comic book workshop and Creative Review Magazine's Paper Toy Workshop
- we'll definitely be attending that one!
Here is just some of the work we're already looking forward to seeing:
Feel Good Party by Mimi Leung
Zevra screenprint by Aida
by Jack Teagle
Tickets prices start at Â£6.00 for concessions and it's open to all ages.
