Today we lost one of our brightest, literary stars. Rest in peace Sir Terry Pratchett and thank you for years of wickedly delicious humour, brilliant wisdom and fabulous fantasy.

Remember the fabulous Gromit Unleashed? This award winning event saw Aardman's loveable canine sidekick Gromit raise £2.3 million for Bristol's Children's Hospital and saw illustrators from all over the UK, including our very own Paula Bowles and Emily Twomey, decorating fantastic Gromit sculptures that appeared all around Bristol. It is now back in a new form! Shaun in the City!
In 2015 Aardman’s internationally-acclaimed character Shaun the Sheep will appear in two ewe-nique arts trails! Over 100 giant sculptures of Shaun the Sheep created by artists, celebrities and designers will be placed in iconic locations and beautiful green spaces across London and Bristol.
Shaun in the City will be appearing in London in spring and flocking to Bristol in the summer, before going to auction to raise money for children in hospitals across the UK. Once again PP artists have been asked to take part and Emily Twomey's hand decorated Shaun will be in Covent Garden's East Piazza Square from the 28th March-25th May! We cannot wait for the big reveal! In the meantime, here's a sneak peak from Emily's Shaun!
