Gromit Unleashed Grand Auction

gromit-lead

Tomorrow (3rd October) is the day the Gromit Unleashed Grand Auction, raising money for Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Appeal, which supports Bristol Children’s Hospital, If you haven’t been following the project, basically an incredible line-up of artists and well-known folk designed and customised big Gromit sculptures. They adorned the streets of Bristol for a while, but now they’re all getting auctioned off – so you could get yourself one (maybe)! Get all of the info over on the Gromit Unleashed site.

Below is a little video of Gav Strange, aka Jam Factory, working on his sculpture, and talking about his inspiration.

Some standout ones for us are (in order below) of course Gav Strange, the amazing cartoonish Gerald Scarfe, Aardman’s very own Peter Lord, and the legendary creator of the Snowman, Raymond Briggs!
