    This month sees the Pick Me Up: Graphic Arts Festival come to Somerset House. From April 18, you will be able to stock up on the best and most affordable graphic art in the country, right here at home.

We’re most excited about visiting comedy cartoonists Modern Toss’s Portrait Booth. On the last day of the festival, the booth will be designing passport-standard portraits in under a minute — which is surely better than any portrait one is normally offered when walking through Leicester Square?

    When: April 18 to 28, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
    Where: Embankment Galleries, Somerset House, Strand, London, WC2R 1LA
    How much: From £8
