Gromit Statues

The first four hand-painted Gromit Statues have been unveiled in Bristol, home of Aardman Animations. These were painted by Sir Paul Smith, Cath Kidston, Simon Tofield and Richard Williams. Each super pooch statue stands 5ft tall, and a total of 70 are in the pipeline, painted by international artists. They will be spread around Bristol in July and auctioned in September to raise funds for Wallace and Gromit's Grand Appeal in aid of the Bristol Children's Hospital (CLICK).

The statues look great. The best one is the stripey one. The others look scared or shocked.

Aardman has said that they are making a Sean the Sheep film. Hope it won't be Americanized. Hope it will be as good as the Wallace and Gromit films.

I saw this news today. It will be a large scale Shaun the Sheep as in the popular TV series, which has been sold to over 100 countries. So, not Americanized.
