Torbay council are organising giant gorillas to be placed all around the town centre and to be painted by various artists chosen by their selected judge panel. Each gorilla will be on show for a few months and at the end they will be auctioned off to the highest bidder, from which all the proceeds will go the great gorilla project. The great gorilla project is set up to raise funds and awareness about the Cross River gorillas of Nigeria which are the worlds most threatened and endangered species of gorillas. Entry closed recently after I had time to send in 3 designs. If I was chosen for this opportunity it would be a great pleasure to be part of such a project and brilliant to see the designs take to streets, just got to wait and see if I get the call . . .
