Pick Me Up - a yearly Graphics Arts Festival that is hosted in Somerset House is one of our most favoured yearly exhibition in London. 

It is not only an event that showcases a lot of wonderful graphics artists - where the artists create work through a number of different mediums, from Photographs, Watercolour, Print, Sculptures etc. The 12 day Graphics Art Festival at the Embankment Galleries at Somerset House also hosts a number of interactive workshops. This year, for example there are book binding workshop from Hato Press, Screen printing from Peckham Print Studio, Cats and Pugs Bunting Making with Gemma Correll with Ohh Deer.

Apart from interactive workshops, there is also a number of very interesting talks given from publishers and agencies that represents artists and illustrators. The link attached will allow you to download this year's Pick Me Up Schedule. 

We are very lucky (and super duper over the moon) to have our work both stocked at Rizzoli Bookshop at Somerset House, as well as this year's Pick Me Up Festival. We can't thank the team at Rizzoli Bookshop any much more especially to see our work nestled seamlessly amongst other artists.

If like us, you like a bit of rock and roll and design. This may be a design submission for you. 

Secret 7 is an annual event where artists / designers submit their designs for a 7 inch vinyl record cover based on a list of chosen music. For this year, the music includes :

On the Secret 7 website http://www.secret-7,com , a list of submission guidelines will be provided and all you need to do is to set up your art template to match what is required. 

Yay! We have our vinyl cover, designed and submitted. 

Unfortunately, this is a secret mission. We have sworn in secrecy to not reveal our design and which music we have designed for.  Hush hush. However, we have created an animated gif to celebrate this fun design event, and especially the good cause for Nordoff Robbins.
