Earlier this year, Pip and Posy illustrator Axel Scheffler led a fantastic live-drawing and storytelling session at the Hay 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 five different signed, dated pieces available to bid on, featuring some of Axel’s best-known and most loved characters – including The Gruffalo, Zog, 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 five pieces being auctioned:
The Gruffalo meets Pip and Posy:
Pip and Posy: The New Friend:
Pip and Posy: The Big Balloon:
Pip and Posy:
Each piece of artwork is a signed, dated and titled original – if you’ve always wanted your own original illustration of The Gruffalo, Zog, or Pip and Posy, here’s your chance! All of the pieces are A4, drawn in pen and coloured pencil.
The auction will run for 10 days, and end on Sunday October 15th at 5pm.
Please do bid generously for this hugely important cause – and good luck!
