The auction of Shaun the sheep brought the Shaun in the City trail to an end. The auction of 126 Shaun the sheep sculptures raise £1,087,900. Amongst the many Shauns decorated by Axel Scheffler, Lucy Cousins, Chris Riddell and many other renowned artists and illustrators was "Primrose", designed and painted by myself earlier in the year. Here is a picture Primrose, the lovely Nick Park, creator of Shaun the Sheep and myself.
Primrose sold for £ 10,000.- , raising money for the Bristol Children's Hospital. Thank you to all the bidders who made the evening such a success.
Bye bye Primrose, I hope you will be happy in your new home and that they will look after you!
PS: I wonder how many people saw the little bee on Primrose bottom...
