Opening today, the event offers work by commercial illustrators and animators to the art-buying public – plus workshops, talks and more.
Somerset House’s yearly Pick Me Up exhibition puts the work of commercial illustrators in front of buyers in a way often reserved for makers from a fine-art background.
There's also the Pick Me Up Selects collection of work created specially for the event by artists including Hattie Stewart, Jean Julien, Malika Favre, MaricorMaricar, Stuart Patience, Ugo Gattoni, You Byun and Ping Zhu.
For kids, there are also workshops by thelegendary Axel The Gruffalo Scheffler and stop-motion animators Aardman – with grown-ups able to get creative with the ever-naughty Modern Toss.
This year’s identity for the show (below) was created by Studio Emmi and Chrissie Macdonald.
Pick Me Up runs until April 28.
