I'm getting a head start on this in anticipation of the press release and other materials coming our way for promotion of the event.

There's a landmark art auction taking place from November 1 - 10, 2011 an online Animated Art Auction will take place to raise much needed funds for Bristol Children’s Hospital in the UK.

It's called "Wallace and Gromit's Grand Appeal".

This will give animation fans all over the world the opportunity to bid on original pieces and signed prints from some of the greatest talents in animation. There's a collection of over 30 pieces of artwork including original sketches, paintings and prints created especially for the auction that will be sold.

Most importantly, the auction will raise funds for a charity that supports some of animation’s biggest fans - children.

There's donations from Pete Lord, Nick Park and a host of Aardman artists and animators, John Lasseter, Pete Docter, Ray Harryhausen, Adam Ellis, Pete Lord, Dick Williams, Arthur Leonardi, Brian Cosgrove, Tom Moore, Terry Brain, Nick Park, and many more.
