Pick Me Up is the first contemporary graphic art fair in the UK. 24 up-and-coming designers and illustrators have been selected to show at Somerset House. Everything feels hand-drawn and hand-made and decidedly lo-fi.
Collectives Nous Vous and Evening Tweed are showing prints and small edition books, Print Club, London has artists doing live screen printing and the paper cutter Rob Ryan has moved his studio in for the event – Rob is drawing, his assistants are cutting delicate paper stencils and making screen prints. It’s wonderful to walk around and be part of all this industry.
