Pick Me Up festival

I had a wonderful time at the Pick Me Up contemporary graphic art festival at Somerset House yesterday. I discovered some really innovative graphic designers - see below for works by Maricormaricar, Malarky, You Byun, Anna Lomax, Rob Flowers, and Malika Favre. I also enjoyed the layered screenprints of the Fatherless Print Posse, the amusing works by the collective Hero of Switzerland (including an amazing Bill Cosby portrait), and charming works with uplifting slogans from the Nelly Duff gallery. Items for sale included bRiebok t-shirts and adorable Lazy Oaf totebags. Event highlights were the fun "Muckburgers" game (prize was an "unhappy meal"), the Coffee Club Sketch-Matic (got a free sketch of a lion dancing with a bear), and the F***yeux Tapestry which anyone could decorate (but only with the words "f***" and "you").
