Pick Me Up

Went and had a quick look round 'Pick Me Up' at Somerset House.
I missed last years and wanted to make the effort this year - it's way smaller than I expected it to be. There were some really lovely stuff but I didn't bring my SLR so I only have a couple of rubbish pictures from my phone. Was a bit disappointed as all the prints I loved were well over £100, was looking to buy something new for my room. There's a lot of other stuff set up like workshops for screen printing though nothing seemed to be running when I was there. Definitely going back..for another look. (I also spied Lizzy Stewart and was sadly illustrator-fame-struck and ran away..ha)
But yeah, apologies for the crappy picture quality, definitely worth the trip for anyone thinking about going.

Nigel Peake (amazing mark making)


  1. awww you should have said hello! i'm almost 100% not scary!
    hope you enjoyed the show. I couldn't afford to buy anything either. boooo.

  2. haha, I'm sure you're not scary! I'm just a timid mouse
    I went back and bought a print in the end, glad I went back a second time, so much amazing stuff.
    Hope you enjoyed it :)
