A young illustrator from Bradley Stoke is set to have an example of her work become one of the most photographed objects in Bristol after being selected to decorate one of the sixty-plus sculptures on the Gromit Unleashed 2 arts trail which started on 2nd July.

Hannah Bone, 23, attended Baileys Court Primary School and then Bradley Stoke Community School before taking an Art Foundation course at Bristol School of Art. She then went on to study for a BA in Illustration at the University of Plymouth, graduating with first class honours in 2017. Since then, she has been working as a freelance illustrator specialising in children’s illustration, but also taking on commissions for pet and family portraits.

After submitting a design back in December 2017, following an ‘open call’ for artists, Hannah says was “extremely excited” to be told she had been chosen as an official artist. She began painting her sculpture in May, but was sworn to secrecy and only allowed to reveal her design a few days before the start of the trail.

Hannah’s Gromit is called Rockin’ Robin and it is located at Ashton Gate Stadium, home to Bristol City FC (‘The Robins’).
