Last Thursday me and a band of Ladies visited Pick Me Up at Somerset House, the annual graphic art and illustration exhibition featuring new and established artists. It’s on till the 1st of April so you can totally still go.
When I visit exhibitions like this I am inspired and frustrated in equal parts and I always come away from them wishing I did more drawing in my daily life. There was fine work by the people of the Soma Gallery; a print collective from Bristol, Alice Hoults little blue elephant almost made it home with me and the cat illustration by Gemma Correll made every one of us ‘ha!’ out loud when we saw it.
Annoyingly I wasn’t concentrating enough (too much gossiping) to take down all the names of the work I liked so though I Really Want a fox and tree print (top left) I don’t know who did it or where I can get it from. Doh!
Oh and if you do go to the exhibition you get to walk past this amazing installation by artist Fernando Casasempere. They’re flowers made of clay, loads of them and really beautiful.
