Having been unable to make it to Pick Me Up with the guys for 2 years running, I was determined to get there this year when I got wind it was back! At the Somerset House Embankment Galleries, it was a mixture of lovely design/illustration work and work that looked like my sketchbook in my first year at university. Not only was it a showcase of talented designers and illustrators, but you could come away with something too – which I very nearly did, but my willpower sustained me. There was some very impressive hand drawn typography, a swirl of intricate pen lines by Yuko Michishita and lovely hand rendered illustration by David Sparshott in the Selected Artists area. Peep Show were artists in residence hosting workshops, and Print Club London set up a screenprinting area inviting people to take part in the process and creating a silk screen print. Definitely worth the visit, inspired me lots!
