Mike surprised to be asked to paint Third Shaun

In early June, just three weeks before the trail was due to be launched, the team at Grand Appeal asked Mike if he would like to paint one of his two designs submitted in late 2014, as they had found a late sponsor. 'Called to the Baa' with Shaun as a High Court Judge was once again a special shape, having all its additional sculpture made by the Cardiff model makers. The wig is just awesome!

Grand Appeal invites Mike to paint second Shaun

Just before Mike finished painting 'Sheep Dip', The Grand Appeal team invited him to paint another Sheep on the theme of 'Pirate Captain.' Mike was inspired by the various films including 'Pirates of the Caribbean'. Lots of late nights ensued as the deadline was looming but somehow he pulled it off – he was still fiddling with the beard when the movers came to take him away – the sculpture not Mike! Look out for the fun details like the pistol manufacturer, the seagull and the gold lace on the hat.

Mike Chosen by Wallace and Gromit Grand Appeal

In late 2014 Mike was selected as one of the artists to paint a Shaun the Sheep sculpture. His design was based on the title ‘Sheep Dip’ which came first, but Shaun is dressed in an Edwardian Swim suit, and a Straw boater (displaying ‘Dip me Quick’) with a life belt around his middle as he doesn’t like the idea of being dipped! Look out for the amazing textures that Mike did on the hat, the swimsuit and in particular the wool tail. There are a few extra amusing details if you look for them!
