I can happily say i have not one, but two of my designs have been chosen. This all came about as an work led opportunity through a group effort at RED©, the design agency i work for. I wont have to do it all alone, I will be overseeing the creations and will have help from fellow colleagues. I can safely say it is by no means a small undertaking, and i am very nervous, but proud to have gotten this far. At this point i can not say what the designs are, but i can show you the Gromits unpainted and some examples of finished ones.
On a personal note, I am very happy to support the 'Grand Appeal'. When my son was born, I had to deliver him myself at home without medical help. When the panic subsided I saw that he was born with some of his bowels on the outside. So within 2 hours of his birth he was rushed into surgery at Bristol's Children's Hospital where they patched my son up, it took three weeks of intensive care. The hospital staff were amazing and helped us through this tough time. My son will be five this year, and that is thanks to the amazing doctors and nurses at the hospital, I can never repay them for what they did for my son and my family.
I hope I can produce two Gromits so awesome that they make lots of money for the hospital.
