Happy New Year!

It's 2014! Thank you for all your support throughout 2013, it was a fantastic year for us and we hope we can make 2014 just as memorable. Of course our biggest achievement last year was taking part in the Gromit Unleashed exhibition - which was a huge success and made lots of pounds for Bristol Children's Hospital. But it doesn't end there, the Gromit Unleashed shop is still open in The Mall Cribbs Causeway and we're happy to reveal we now have a figurine of Hullaballoon available to buy. Be quick though as they tend to sell like hot cakes!  You can see the little chap below in all his glory (and well done to the person who handpainted him - steady hand skills!)

Bye bye Gromit



So its all over! Gromit Unleashed went out with a bang when it had its grand finale of a live auction of all 92 Gromits! It all took place in Bristol on the 3rd October, with Bargain Hunt's presenter, Tim Wonnacott acting as celebrity auctioneer. Unfortunately we couldn't make it due to other commitments but we watched the live auction online to see how much each Gromit would go for.

When Hullaballoon was finally up we were biting our nails down to nothing! We were convinced it wouldn't sell and let everyone down. Luckily we were very, very wrong, Hullaballoon went for a stonking £26,000! It was won in the room, so whoever you are thank you for being so generous! We've put the clip up on Youtube for all to see here.

All in all the auction was a terrific success with all 92 Lots raising an incredible £2.3 million! We couldn't be more proud to be part of such a huge project and as we tell a lot of people, we'll never be part of a bigger art exhibition than this - its just got possible! So thank you to everyone for the support and going to see Hullaballoon, it means the world to us.

Bristol Post - Monster Riot style

Carrying on from our Gromit Unleashed hi-jinx, we were asked by Bristol Post to redesign their masthead in the style of our Gromit. It appeared in print and on their website for one day. It was a fun thing to re-style and an honour to be part of Bristol's biggest paper. Click the image to see it in its full glory!

A Grand Day Out

We got to attend the launch of the Gromit Unleashed trail on June 28th in Bristol. It all started off at the M Shed with Nick Park making a 'Grand' entrance on a vintage steam train chock full of Gromit sculptures, including Nick's one which was kept top secret up until that point (its the one below with Wallace covering a poor Gromit in newspaper cuttings). Apart from being amazed by the talented artists that had taken part, we also got to meet animation legends Nick Park and Peter Lord, who were really lovely and thanked us for our work on the project. We were also treated to some short 'making of' films which featured the guys at Pixar creating 'Gromit Lightyear' and political cartoonist Gerald Scarfe with his stunning paint covered Gromit; 'Watch Out Gromit'.

It was a truly magnificent day and such a privilege to be part of. It's our first ever exhibition and it can't get any bigger or amazing than this, we really are lucky to have been a part of it. We hope the trail is a huge success and all the Gromit's make a ton of cash when they are auctioned off for charity after September. The trail starts Monday and you can find us at number 59 on the map (grab one from Bristol when you visit!) or get the app from the App Store. Don't forget to hashtag all your gromit photos #gromitunleashed if you do the trail!

But it doesn't end there! We'll be visiting our Gromit later next month at the Arnos Vale Heritage site where we'll be taking part in some events they will be hosting. We'll post more pics of ours in its new home along with others we've taken along the way of this fantastic charity exhibition.
