A grand day out...

While heading down to the SW for a family holiday at the end of August, we passed through Bristol where we went on the Gromit trail.
This was great fun, and every one of the Gromit statues was very impressive. They were scattered throughout the city, and in many buildings beyond. We managed to find almost half the statues in total.
Here are some of the images I took...

We also picked up a competition entry form. The aim was to design a Gromit in the same vein as the ones that had been displayed. Heard earlier this week that my son is one of the runners-up in his age-group, from over 1000 entries !
The judge, an illustrator himself said that:

“I assessed the entries based on the originality of the design, the thought process behind it and the artistic qualities.

.. which seem to be appropriate criteria for art work...
