TATTOOS

I'm happy for you to take my existing work in to your tattoo artist to be adapted or customised or to use as creative direction or as-is. I regard tattooing as 'personal use' of my artwork; any other reproduction or unauthorised use of my work is in breach of copyright. Similarly, if you are a tattooist, please don’t reproduce my work and add it to your flash book or try to pass it off as designs you have a right to sell to clients.

If you want to make a gesture of support, I recently set up a Tattoo Ticket listing here ($35AUD). The Tattoo Tickets also provide access to hi-res scans of artwork (if I have them on file) that are a bit clearer than what is available online. 

I am not currently working on custom/commission tattoo artwork. 


COMMISSIONS

Yes, I create and licence work for commercial use such as t-shirt or promotional/merch graphics, packaging design, editorial illustration, book illustration and logo design. Unfortunately, I quite rarely take on new clients; I work for a bunch of long-term clients who keep me pretty busy.

Please contact rachel@ponygoldstudio.com if you would like to discuss availability and rates – and apologies in advance, I can take a while to reply as I’m juggling a somewhat haphazard one-woman show.


CAREER PATH

I completed a Bachelor of Journalism at the University of Queensland, and worked as a journalist for approximately six years before moving into marketing and graphic design, then onto full time graphic design and illustration. Throughout university and during my years working as a journalist, I worked my ass off in my spare time practicing illustration and developing my style… from that, commercial jobs started to arise, and I was able to move to part-time markerting/graphic design work, and finally onto full-time freelancing. During that time, I also took a three-month intensive graphic design course on scholarship to Shillington College in Melbourne.
