London artist Mark Powell cleverly re-purposes old, used, and often tattered ephemera. Using cancelled envelopes, maps, and other found items as his canvases, he produces striking, life-like, and inked drawings. His sketches are made using only a Bic Biro pen, often incorporating the original stamps, logos, and addresses.

It seems about right. We noticed on April 2014 cover artist Andy Rementer's Instagram that he did a t-shirt for DC Shoes and Pick Me Up 2014, one of the best if not THE BEST graphic arts festivals in the world. And what seems right about it is that we learned about Rementer's work at the festival a few years back. Pick Me Up is held annually at the Somerset House in London, and basically get the right people together to show the right kind of graphic and illustrative and design arts.
