Last week we announced that we would be auctioning some original artwork by Axel Scheffler, produced during live-drawing sessions at the Stratford-upon-Avon Literary Festival and Barnes Children’s Literature Festival, in aid of charity – and there’s not long left to bid, if you’d like to be in with a chance of winning one of the incredible pieces: the auctions close at 5pm on Sunday 27th.
There are seven different signed, dated original pieces of artwork available to bid on, featuring some of Axel’s best-known and most loved characters – including The Gruffalo, The Highway Rat, 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.
This is a fantastic opportunity to own an original, signed piece of artwork by Axel! Here’s what you can bid on:
The Gruffalo meets Pip and Posy:
Pip and Posy at the beach:
Pip and Posy:
Pip and Posy meet a dinosaur:
Mouse and The Gruffalo:
The Highway Rat:
Marabou Stork (from The Ugly Five):
Each piece of artwork is a signed and dated original – if you’ve always wanted your own original illustration of The Gruffalo, Pip and Posy, or The Highway Rat, here’s your chance!
Please do bid generously for this hugely important cause – and good luck!
