In search of a messenger cliché

©Barry Sandland/TIMB – Another t-shirt I will have to find.

“I am the Sydney Bicycle Messenger Association official artist. We have these stickers and I designed the group art. When  you are in Paris and you see these shirts, then those guys are from Sydney. You can buy them there, as well. Look for a guy who is probably drinking beer, smoking heaps and has a giant beard. But everyone is going to be trading and selling their own t-shirts.”

Notes: I mean, seriously, she said to look for a messenger cliché in a world of messengers. Beards, booze and cigarettes. The only missing aid was the number of tattoos he would carry. Clearly I replied with a look of sarcasm. And, of course, I am going to find him. Watch the account for the inevitable posting.

I am posting a series one the 2016 Cycle Messenger World Championships in Paris, so head to the front page and use the search engine for CMWC.
