Gromit Unleashed!

I'm very flattered and excited to be one of 70 artists chosen to illustrate a giant 5 foot Gromit as part of Bristol's 'Gromit Unleashed'!

More than 500 artists from across the globe submitted designs, and i will be exhibiting alongside Raymond Briggs, the man behind The Snowman, and Axel Scheffler, who drew children's favourite The Gruffalo.

Each sculpture will be individually designed and created by the invited artists, creating a trail of seventy unique pieces of art and will form an art exhibition for ten weeks over the summer of 2013.

At the end of the public art exhibition, the sculptures will be auctioned to raise funds for Wallace & Gromit's Grand Appeal, the Bristol Children's Hospital Charity.

That's a fantastic accolade. You must be so excited/terrified. Do you know where yours will be parked yet? Or is it secret?

Thanks Ian, I don't know where my Gromit will be yet. Watch this space! :)
