Papergirl Newcastle

What is 'Papergirl'?... Papergirl is a no bones, lets do and share, give away art on bikes operation. Over the course of one weekend, we plan to have an exhibition of Papergirl contributors with a bit party afterward. The following morning will be the meat and veg of the operation, starting with the breakfast meet up... after which, said cyclists will distribute the artwork to the general public on the streets of Newcastle. To get things rolling, all we need is the artists submissions!

There are no guidelines as to format, subject matter or quantity, so originals, prints, photos, copies etc just get in touch, let us know you're on board and send stuff in. Each roll will contain several different works, meaning that each one holds a unique combination of works.

We plan to make this fun, laid back and quite the party... but we need your help. We need cyclists, artwork and general hands on help. If you want to get involved in any way, just drop us an email address.

For submissions, meeting our cycling needs or a general enquiry, email us on: papergirlnewcastle@live.co.uk

Best place to check in and keep updated is our FB: www.facebook.com/papergirlnewcastle

Next up… some say he started the London Riots… other say he stopped them. In some circles he’s considered to be the most handsome man ever to submit to Papergirl globally… most know him as a short, chubby, uncharasmatic ne’erdowell couldn’t organise a piss up in a cafe type. We bring you, The Cloud Commission

This time, its the turn of ‘Ric O’ Shea’. I’m not sure what I’m allowed to say about this chap… a man of many a moniker. Suffice it to say, he’s probably done as much for the arts/illustration scene in this city as anyone ever has, probably more!… he would never say that himself either! One of worlds nice guys… and to top it off, the kid can draw too!Have a look at his work HERE and why not look at THIS too
