What’s your pick-me-up of choice? Well, we can’t promise to bring you coffee or a cheeky pastry from that place you like around the corner, but what we can promise is some great art that’ll put a smile on your face. From Thursday (April 18), Pick Me Up: Graphic Arts Festival will be back at Somerset House with a selection of work from around the world on display and on sale, many of which will have an affordable price tag. Not only will there be a mind-boggling number of illustrations and art work on show but there will also be workshops, evening events and creative forums that’ll make you wish you had paid more attention during your art GCSE classes. With daily tickets costing £6 and festival passes at just £15, there’s no excuse not to go to this week’s hottest art event. Carly-Ann Clements
