Pick Me Up

Checked out an event called Pick Me Up today, the graphic design equivalent of Frieze art fair, at the Embankment galleries of Somerset House. What a great show, full of exuberant graphic design & illustration. It works both as exhibition of what's currently hot and as a series of studio workshops. Antony Burrill has moved his studio here and you can join him with scalpel & pritt. Or you can have a go at print-making. Or just buy stuff. Really good community atmosphere.

Great to catch up with a splendidly bearded Simon at Browns later on. The Browns tradition started in Brighton. It was the first of the chain (established in 1973; I think there are about 15 now?) and was always a treat when we started going in the 80s. Still like the guinness & mushroom pie, though I can't manage the chocolate cake these days.
