Default Gromit Unleashed!

In the Bristol area a huge charity project is on display. There are 80 large Gromit sculptures in different locations around the city and also in tourist locations nearby. One is at Paddington Station in London which is where the trains from this region terminate in London.

Here is a link to the charity website where there is lots of information about it Gromit Unleashed | Charity Art Exhibition from Aardman Animations & The Grand Appeal

We only started collecting pictures of them a few days ago, but have planned to go out next week and get as many as possible.

They will be collected in at the beginning of September and auctioned off for charity in October to raise money for Bristol Childrens Hospital.

Each one is decorated by a different artist/celebrity.

Here is our first one called Oops a Daisy which is at Tintesfield near Bristol.
He was designed by Diarmuid Gavin who is an Irish garden designer and tv celebrity here.

The next one is called The Wild West, but has nothing to do with cowboys or Texas.
Instead it is about the wildlife in the West of England. There are lots of different animals painted all over him.

Designed by artist Amy Timms http://www.antlersgallery.com/artist...view-amy-timms

At Paddington Station is a normal Gromit without all the art all over it. This one is #80 and listed as Aardman Animations as the artist which is Nick Park's production company.

My husband took this with his iPad when visiting London for a meeting.

One of my favorite claymation series. I had a blue heeler (dog) named after Gromit, miss her.

I love anything that Aardman/Nick Park does. Very talented.
