My pal Simon Gurr has been awarded a commission to create a new artwork of people who have helped make the city of Bristol famous. This is serious civic pride stuff with a price tag of £10,000. Joe Gordon reports here.
I was surprised and delighted to discover that Sir WG Grace was on the list. With him and Brunel, Bristol is a definite candidate for steampunk stories. I wonder if I could work in Wallace & Gromit as well. (Yes, I know they are from Yorkshire, but Aardman Studios is in Bristol.)
