The Paperjammening No.2

Did you know it's Small Press Day on 9th July? Well, it is! What is it? Basically a good excuse for comic shops to run events highlighting small press comic creators.

This seemed like an ideal time to run an event something like The Paperjammening micro con we ran in November. So that's what we're doing. It's imaginatively titled The Paperjammening No.2.

10.30am-4.30pm, Saturday 9th July, downstairs at Travelling Man Newcastle, free.

Come and meet a load of talented yet approachable artists! Join in with daft drawing games / art jams! Party party party (in a small press comics kind of way)! Support DIY comics!

So who's gonna be downstairs at The Paperjammening No.2 at Travelling Man Newcastle on Small Press Day, Saturday 9th of July, with awesome comics and art for you? THESE WONDERFUL PEOPLE:
