Podcast: Marcroy Smith, People of Print (and more…)
If you’re at all interested in the vagaries of putting ink on stuff, you’ll probably be familiar with People of Print. Or maybe you’ve read Posterzine, Print Isn’t Dead, or the People of Print book. Maybe you’ve bought a print from the Department Store, or maybe you’ve found yourself gazing at the acres of lovely printed stuff on the People of Print Instagram.
It’s all the work of Marcroy Smith, and as he explains in this week’s episode of the podcast, it all began with a simple list of people who screen print. He says he never intended for it to become a business, but as it grew organically he spotted opportunities to help artists sell their work in a fair way that benefits all involved.
