The Shaun in the City Bristol trail is now well under way! 70 giant sculptures of Shaun the Sheep created by by a host of artists, designers and celebrities have been set free in locations around the city, and they'll be there until August 31st... if you're in Bristol you will have no doubt spotted some! At the end of the trail, the sculptures will go to auction, along with the additional 50 Shauns that formed a London trail earlier in the year - all to raise money for children in hospitals across the UK.

I was fortunate enough to have been selected to create 2 Shauns for the trail, which I worked on in November last year, and the second one a few months back in February. I've put together a couple of 'photo-stories' to document the process of each one.
Earlier this year I had the pleasure of working with Henleaze Junior School on their Shaun the Sheep sculpture, for the Shaun in the City schools project...
I've been particularly quiet in terms of social media and blog posts of late. The main reason for this is that aside from my usual workload I have also been busy painting for Shaun in the City - a project organised by Aardman and the Grand Appeal to create over 100 giant sculptures of Shaun the Sheep, which will appear as two different art trails in Bristol and London and raise money for children's hospitals across the UK...
Following on from the previous post, here is the process involved in creating my second Gromit, "Blazing Saddles" for Gromit Unleashed.
For those that don't know, Gromit Unleashed is a public art exhibition led by Aardman Animations which will see 80 x 5ft tall fibreglass sculptures of Gromit unleashed in Bristol for the summer of 2013.
This post will show the process involved in creating the first of my dogs "Grrrrromit".
