Tomorrow: Stinking it up

A talk by John O’Reilly at Pick Me Up


In an A-Z of illustration, editor of Varoom John O’Reilly will be exploring how the ‘stupid’ in illustration and animation re-invents the idea of the ‘social’ – in an exclusive talk hosted by Pick Me Up Graphic Arts Festival in Somerset House.

The drop-in talk is free to attend with a festival pass and will start at 11:30am tomorrow (Friday 24th), with an approximate duration of 30 minutes following a brief Q&A session.
