So excited to be painting a Gromit sculpture for this year's Gromit Unleashed 2 sculpture trail in my home city of Bristol, UK! The design is top-secret for now, but watch this space for more info :) No doubt the trail will be as successful and exciting as previous trails and should have lots of people flocking to Bristol to see the sculptures. Here comes summer!
Entertaining local Knowle event
Spread the word ... this Sunday 11 September in Redcatch Park, Knowle, Bristol.
Music, art, stalls and sunshine ... see you there ... my stall (prints, cards and bags) is going to be near the main stage.
Well, all I can say is what an amazing, nail biting finish to what has been such an exciting few months.
Last night's Shaun in the City auction raised over one million pounds for charity. Every single one of the Shauns sold and King of the Carnival was bought by an online bidder for £4,600!
Sad to see him go, but so glad he was snapped up :)
Here are a few photos from the auction ....
It doesn't seem that long ago that I sent in my proposed designs to Shaun in the City and now the auction is just around the corner! Here is an extract from the auction catalogue - I really hope he sells and makes lots of money for the Grand Appeal Children's Charity.

Some photos from the recent Bristol and London exhibitions ...
From 12 to 20 September, The Mall Cribbs Causeway played host to a truly baa-rilliant sight: all 120 Shaun in the City sculptures united in one giant flock! Every fab-ewe-lous design from both the London and Bristol trails was displayed in ewe-nique categories, including Bristol Breeds, showcasing b-ewe-tiful Bristol designs and Farmer's Market, featuring our Shauns that looked good enough to eat! Thank ewe to all our visitors for supporting the Exhibition and a special thank you to The Mall at Cribbs Causeway, Icescape and Stage Electrics for their fantastic sponsorship of the event.
A second Great Sheep Round up Exhibition took place in London from 24 to 27 September. All 120 Shaun sculptures flocked to Covent Garden Piazza to help raise funds for Wallace & Gromit's Children's Charity, and we hosted a baa-rilliant pop-up shop featuring lots of Shaun in the City goodies. What a spectac-ewe-lar sight!
Really excited to announce that the King of the Carnival has been made into a fab figurine! You can buy him at the Wallace and Gromit charity shop at The Mall, Cribbs Causeway or online here
All proceeds go to the Grand Appeal children's charity.
Here's a photo of Shaun, taken from the Bristol trail which finished on 31 August.
He will be auctioned off for charity at the end of October. For more info please follow this link to the Shaun in the City website.
