Pick Me Up
Time Out says
The seventh incarnation of the graphic arts festival returns with drawings and prints for sale by artists, groups and galleries from all over the world.
Celebrating graphic design in all its manifestations, the best artists, illustrators and designers will once again create engaging displays and interactive stands in the Embankment Galleries at Somerset House.
For all the high-profile names involved, there’s an informal art-school vibe to this annual festival. There will be plenty of opportunity to learn about the different processes and techniques at live demonstrations as well as encouraging festival-goers to get involved and try their hand at making their own work.
This year's festival is themed around ideas of community and collaboration. Look out for 'Pick Me Up Selects' featuring artists who have graduated during the past three years and a major retrospective of typographic design legend Alan Kitching.
