PICK ME UP

Somerset House is currently hosting a brilliant collection of British graphic arts. Pick Me Up festival is a great chance to shine a light on local illustration collectives and solo graphic artists. The walls were covered with beautiful giclée prints galore - from graphite sketches to minimalist typographic posters. There was also inspiring installation work featuring 3D printing utilized for animation. Animaux Circus (one of my fave East London artist collectives, with a focus on street art) had a fun sign-painting workshop on the go with cute wooden cut-outs, and it was great to see Edward Carvalho-Monaghan's (one of my fellow Adobe Jammers) bold illustrations printed large scale. Unlimited Shop of Brighton was a noticeable favourite storefront for everyone with their colourful prints, while Jessica Das and Jack Hudson were stand-out for me!
