We're now back open, by appointment - please read our latest COVID restrictions (no drop ins, & call from outside for pick-ups please!).
For the first two weeks in December, we have teamed up with two fantastic artists for our annual Christmas Print Giveaway!
Our first artist is Rachel Urquhart of Pony Gold Studio, a long-time client of ours who was also one of our featured artists a few years back!
Rachel is an illustrator and designer based in the mid-north coast of NSW. She draws on psychedelic poster art, bad tattoos, natural history illustration, 70s print design and old t-shirt graphics for inspiration, and as a result, has made quite a name for herself with her distinctive graphic illustration style. Alongside freelancing in the creative industries with Australian and international brands, Rachel produces limited edition prints, and we are very excited to be giving away one of her signed fine art prints!
The image chosen as our giveaway print is 'Wade', printed for the first time in A2 on Hahnemühle Photo Rag. Read on below to find out the story behind this beautiful piece!

"Wade was created for an annual art show that I’ve been involved with for the past few years, which focuses on body positivity, female empowerment and women supporting women in the creative industries. So in creating this piece, I was thinking a lot about the dualities of being a woman — things beautiful and dangerous, at once vulnerable and capable, strong and soft, that reality of balance that we see in nature and in the way women live and navigate the world.
This print will be the only one produced at A2 size, which makes it very special!"
The process of printing my files for the exhibition was made very simple with all the detailed information on the Image Science website. In particular the downloadable templates are a fantastic resource. I feel I have a pretty good basic knowledge about the printing process and pre-production but I am totally in awe of the knowledge and set up at Image Science. Printing with them I feel in safe hands and very happy with the final results.
