Last weekend, Pip and Posy illustrator Axel Scheffler took part in two fantastic live-drawing and storytelling sessions at the National Trust Children’s Literature Festival at Quarry Bank – and today, we’re very pleased to say that we’ll be auctioning some of the original artwork that Axel produced at each event, in aid of charity. There are eight different signed, dated original 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 each of the pieces being auctioned:
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 July 8th at 5pm.
Please do bid generously for this hugely important cause – and good luck!
