Artist: Morgan Guillery, supported by Judy Guillery
Morgan Guillery’s design was the winning entry for the Swindon Advertiser’s Children’s Competition. At just 12 years old, Morgan is one of the youngest ever people to design a large Wild in Art sculpture. The Swindon-based artist loves to create intricate black and white sketches. His steampunk-inspired design, featuring Swindon’s heritage, was selected by the Advertiser to adorn the paper’s special Swindog sculpture. Working around school hours to complete his sculpture, Morgan has been supported by his artist mum Judy Guillery in developing the finished Swindog design. Judy has also created her own Swindog design, Love Grows.

After the trail finishes the Swindogs will be auctioned to raise vital funds for Julia’s House, your local children’s hospice charity. If you have sponsored a uniquely designed and decorated big balloon dog sculpture this will be your chance to adopt your Swindog. Then it can go to its forever home where it can be enjoyed for many years to come!Find out more
