Gromit Unleashed

Back in April I showed you these first four completed Gromit statues, hand-painted by Sir Paul Smith, Cath Kidston, Simon Tofield and Richard Williams (CLICK). All 80 giant Gromits are now ready to be distributed around Bristol this weekend for the Gromit Unleashed fundraising appeal for Bristol Children's Hospital. Wallace and Gromit creator Nick Park, whose Aardman Animations studio is based in Bristol, came up with the idea to raise funds. Gromit painters include Sir Quentin Blake, Gerald Scarfe and the team at The Beano. One of the Gromits has travelled all the way from Hollywood: a Buzz Lightyear Gromit with plastic helmet. This you must see. Jon Kay was given a sneak preview (CLICK).
