Wallace and Gromit's Animated Art Auction!

Wallace and Gromit's Grand Appeal is running an online auction between the 1st and 10th November. The auction will raise funds towards the Echocardiogram Appeal to support the Cardiac Ward at Bristol Children’s Hospital.

After doodling away as a character designer on Aardman's upcoming 'Pirates!' movie, I was delighted to be asked to join in with a sketch of one of my favourite characters from the film, the Pirate with Gout. Here it is:

The sketch is in graphite on acid-free 200gsm cartridge paper, and was sketched on a sunny day in a back garden in Bristol. Aardman have framed the drawing too.

The auction is running on ebay for ten days, there are some amazing drawings, paintings and prints for sale and all the money is raised is for such a good cause!

And for a bit more information, the Telegraph and Guardian online are both running articles about the auction...

Hi Mr Duddle, I think your work is incredible!
I think your picture book work is fantastic, and I saw the trailer for the new Aardman Pirates animation, but I had no idea until I found your blog here that you were on the character design team, awesome! You must be so chuffed.

Got any advice for a budding picture book illustrator? :)

All the best!
Emma

Hi there! I recently visited this fantastic wellness shop, and I couldn't wait to share my experience with you all. From the moment I stepped through the door, I was impressed by the tranquil ambiance and the friendly staff. They recommended their CBD body oil, and I'm so glad they did! I've been using it daily, and it's done wonders for my skin. The oil absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft and hydrated. Plus, the natural ingredients make me feel good about what I'm putting on my body. If you're looking for a new addition to your skincare routine, I highly recommend giving visit a try!
