Pick Me Up

I spent this afternoon wandering around Pick Me Up, a graphic design and illustration festival at Somerset House. Pick Me Up is a festival that showcases young talent in illustration, graphic design and other related disciplines. There were a lot of different techniques to see, screenprinting, riso printing, paper craft and animation.  The festivals is divided in a few different sections, the Pick Me Up Selects area where 12 up and coming artist show their work, there is an area where collectives, galleries and studios show their work and also organize workshops and there is the Pick Me Up Platform, where there are talks, debates and demonstrations.

There were so many things to see and do and I had a really good time! All the artists at the festival were different and their work was very inspiring. I loved seeing the sketchbooks too, it was great to see the proces behind the work that was on display.

I took loads of photo's so here are just a few to give an impression of the festival! The festival is on until the 4th of may and definitly worth a look if you're in the area.
