Canon Australia has partnered with fashion illustrator Megan Hess for a free exhibition of limited-edition prints in Sydney.

Hess, who became famous for illustrating the bestselling novel Sex and the City, is using Canon’s industrial print range to bring her printing in house, which she says gives her more control over the finished product. “The benefit of printing in house is that I can keep a close eye over the detail, which is a fundamental aspect of my design process. Partnering with Canon gives me the peace of mind that the exact colours, the line work, and detail is reproduced precisely as I envisioned it,” she said.

Hess employs a range of Canon wide-format printers, including the ImagePROGRAF Pro-1000 and ImagePROGRAF Pro-2000, to produce her prints. She believes her work becomes more valuable when printed, especially in the modern digital world. “In our automated and digital society anything that’s hand drawn, handmade, hand crafted or hand printed becomes really valuable. I’m excited to be part of the printing process using Canon because I know my work is truly valued when it becomes a piece of tangible art, or is something I can share with someone,” she said.

Gavin Gomes, director of Canon business services at Canon Australia, said Canon is pleased to partner with Hess. “We are extremely proud of Canon’s partnership with Megan Hess, which is testament to our superior printing capabilities. No matter your requirement, Canon has the right printer for your business – from space-saving desktop printers right through to high-volume commercial printing,” Gomes said.

Hess’ new exhibition in conjunction with Canon Australia, Paris, is free and open to the public at SUNSTUDIOS, 42 Maddox St Alexandria, until September 18.
