Pick Me Up 2011

Yesterday I went with my friend Lauren to my favourite London exhibition, "Pick Me Up" at Somerseth House. It shows fresh work from new and very talented graphic designers and illustrators from around the world.
It was at Somerseth House, and is still on until the 27th of March.
My favourite pieces were by Jessica Hische, I have written about her website "Daily Dropcap" before. She showcased her awesome typography on posters.
There were also lots of cool illustrated magazines and books that you could buy.
I really like this owl print, I don't remember what the designer was called though.
This funky poster was by Swedish designer Clara Terne.
Lauren checking out some books.
Another typographic poster by Jessica Hische.
Me and Lauren as a marshmallow and wood log!
This zebra print was really well done as well I thought.
Illustration by Yoh Nagao.

These dogs on the teapots are quite weird!
And at the end there was a nice 3D installation of a forest.

Oh wow I love all of those! So cool. I think my favorite one has to be the Japanese illustration with the whales. Do you know the name of that artist?

How awesome! I could totally get lost in there for hours...umm, or maybe even days. :) I love those creepy doggy teapots and the "say it with flowers"!
