The Skipping Girl is an iconic Melbourne landmark.

It is a neon sign, much beloved by Melbournians.


This is my tribute to her - as I imagine she would look in 2007.

Love the artwork. The graffiti color is bright and fabulous.

Very vibrant colours, although they tend to make it difficult to find the girl. At least they keep the eye looking around! Well composed shot with the corners of the alley bordering it.

Great example for me of when to selectively edit color maybe black and white the bckgrd and leave the girl or visa versa. Readymade stuff is tricky

I love how she's totally integrated into the wall's artwork.

Nice capture - Great location and amazing colours - Just a shame the girl gets so lost in the background - Hard one to do. Great PP.

This is beautiful. The girl almost looks like part of the mural, with the bright colors she's wearing. I hope this does really well.

The background is so busy it took my eyes a moment to find the person. I like the overall color treatment/grungy-like look. I still wish ther person stood outmore though.

Had to look hard to find the skipping girl... if it weren't for your title, I think I would have missed her. Nice colors... they really pop!
