Skipping Girl Vinegar, Melbourne 6 x 8 Blue Sky Colour Print
Harper and Charlie’s Skipping Girl Vinegar Melbourne print aka ’Little Audrey’. This illustration may not make a lot of sense to anybody outside of Melbourne, Australia, but this heritage-listed neon sign is part of the cultural fabric of Melbourne. Built in the mid-’30s, the neon ‘skipping rope’ was illuminated in four sequential positions to give the appearance of her skipping rope, while the horizontal neon tubes beneath her would also illuminate in an up and down vertical sequence to mimic her jumping up and down.
Little Audrey brought a lot of joy (especially for children) at night or stuck in peak hour traffic on busy Victoria Street, well before digital devices and advertising came along.
Harper and Charlie’s Skipping Girl Vinegar Melbourne illustration is printed on premium grade Ilford 180 gsm matte paper with commercial grade pigment inks.
The distinctive look of Harper and Charlie’s art is inspired by vintage printmaking techniques, such as the use of coarse halftone screens, slipped registrations, colour bleed, scuffs and scratches etc which add to the look and feel of each design. Please note these elements have been applied to the art on purpose and are not printing defects in the final design.
The total print size as specified in the product listing includes the shown border around the design as part of the finished image. Please note, the width of the border on each design varies with each print size.
