Marc Godfrey-Murphy owner and creator of MarcoLooks, a York based illustrator and former Cbeebies Animator, is launching a Print Swap to bring together artists across Yorkshire and beyond.
Marc is inviting peers and fellow illustrators and artists who sell their work (even if it’s just a small Etsy shop with two or three listings), to take part in the MarcoLooks Print Swap, to share and support each other’s work. Applications to join the Print Swap will be open from April to July, where everyone involved will send Marc a batch of their prints, then in return, they will receive a selection of new prints from the other artists involved. To celebrate the end of the swap, the beautiful Courthouse at Rural Arts, North Yorkshire's only professionally-run cross-discipline arts centre, in Thirsk, will be home to a fantastic exhibition of all the work that got swapped.
Marc has been selling his prints, cards and stationery items in York since 2018. He felt compelled and inspired to create the print swap to encourage the sense of community over competition.
The Print Swap is launching on Friday 16th April. Anyone can take part, providing they are an artist selling their work either on their own website, at events, or through a platform like Etsy or Folksy.
