Here's a section of the press release and info:

"Nestled in the East Quarter of Carnaby, the Newburgh Quarter is a treasure trove of unique projects and inspiring people. The area is packed with independent boutiques showcasing unique fashion, art and design. It is here Sketchbook will be holding its hugely-anticipated Pop-Up Shop, in celebration of Carnaby’s 50 years of fashion and music.

The Sketchbook Pop-Up Shop will run for a limited period of 3 weeks following the launch of the second issue of Sketchbook Magazine. This community driven project offers visitors a chance to interact with a series of Sketchbook’s contributing guest bloggers, artists, designers, illustrators and editors who are all key figures in the contemporary fashion and arts community. These guests, including Sketchbook’s covergirl Susie Bubble, will be holding scheduled educational workshops, lectures and panel discussions, which will be digitally streamed through an interactive live thread.

The Sketchbook Pop-Up Shop will be selling several limited edition prints and illustrations as well as kitsch one-off art pieces by a select group of our Sketchbook contributors.

There will be a main gallery space as well as several themed rooms with custom made illustrations on the walls, created especially for the event by our contributors. There will also be 2 screening rooms showcasing Sketchbook TV episodes and other short films.

Visitors can join the Sketchbook team and our special guests for
tea and cake between 5 and 6pm.

A competition will be running throughout, offering visitors the opportunity to submit illustrations to be used on the front cover of a future issue. The winner will be announced in the following month.

Visitors are also invited to help document the events, with cameras available and a large blank canvas for people to illustrate, write their thoughts, stick photos on and show their support.

Sketchbook is a quarterly magazine with a print run of 10,000 that showcases established and emerging creative talents in fashion, design and culture with a focus on features, photography and illustration. Sketchbook is not just about the product itself, but also about the beauty of the process of conceptualisation, creation and appreciating the means to an end.

The mission is to inspire youth to path-find, allocate their passions, understand how the creative industry works, what opportunities it provides, and pursue it full force using online resources, digital media and publishing as tools for success.

Starting from the 31st March, join Sketchbook for the first exhibition at the Pop-Up Shop , showcasing the work of key contributing illustrators.

10 Newburgh Street, Carnaby, London W1F 7RN.

Wednesday 31st March – Monday 19th April 2010
Monday to Saturday: 10am-7pm, Sundays: 12noon-6pm''

Invite everyone and do come have a look yourself! I'll be around the exhibition myself, partially because I am technically 'staff'' and because the exhibition, as well as being Sketchbook's, it's a collaboration with my friend's uni project so the more people that turn up the better! Plus it's bloody well exciting in general!

I'll remind and update with news closer to the time, but 3 weeks isn't very far! I'll need to go and physically help before the grand opening so hopefully pictures from that!

Seriously guys, from one blogger to another and if you're based in London. Go. It's great. Fashion, art, music and fun fun fun in one cool place? YES.
