News and views from The Kiosk, Russell Park, Bedford
It’s been a few weeks since our sunny day of hedgehog creation in the park. We thought that you might like to see the winning entries, chosen by illustrator Katy Dynes from a huge selection of inspired designs. Katy told us that it was ‘really hard to choose – so many of the hedgehogs were amazing and showed so much imagination!’
As you can see we have a huge range of Russell designs, from the natural look – leaves and pinecones, to soft pink with a yellow nose; there are floral patterns and pom-pom accessories, plus the addition of a surfboard in one. All of the ones that we picked showed a great deal of personality – essential for a cheeky hedgehog living near the Kiosk. Katy took elements of all these winning designs for her final soft toy of the Kiosk mascot Russell – to be unveiled VERY SOON! Much excitement! We’ve got some fab interviews with some of the winning artists coming up on the blog, as well as, obviously, the first photos of our very own mascot Russell. Paparazzi moment!
If you would like to collect your work of Russell-Art – perhaps to hang above your mantelpiece, they are all available for collection from the Kiosk. Thank you all for your imaginative entries.
