The event was started on May 5, 2007 by the MPC Printmakers and artist Robynn Smith. Every year participation grows as artists from all over the world print and share. This year, in addition to the official Print Day in May (PDM) blog site, there is now an official Print Day in May Facebook page.
I am fortunate to be part of the MPC Printmakers and helping with PDM. I will be printing with many of them and Robynn Smith this year in Monterey, CA. We are hoping to have more participants this year than ever before!
If you would like to take part, it's very easy:
1) Print something, anything! A footprint in the sand, even a fingerprint counts!
2) Share with printmakers worldwide on our blog: http://printdayinmay.mpcprintmakers.org
Every comment, photo, or just an "I intend to print", goes a long way to fostering community among Printmakers worldwide.
