Earlier this year, Pip and Posy illustrator Axel Scheffler led a fantastic live-drawing and storytelling session at the Edinburgh Festival. And today we’re very pleased to say that we’ll be auctioning some of the original artwork that Axel produced on the day in aid of charity. There are four different signed, dated pieces available to bid on, featuring some of Axel’s best-known and most loved characters – including The Gruffalo and Pip and Posy – and all proceeds will go to Three Peas, a charity offering help and support to the thousands of people suffering and fleeing civil war in Syria and other war torn countries.
Here are the four pieces being auctioned:
The Gruffalo meets Pip and Posy:
Pip and Posy on the beach:
Pip and Posy in the rain:
Pip and Posy on a tractor:
Each piece of artwork is a signed and dated original – if you’ve always wanted your own original illustration of The Gruffalo or Pip and Posy, here’s your chance!
The auction will run for 10 days, and end on Sunday November 19th at 5pm.
Please do bid generously for this hugely important cause – and good luck!
