Rydal, Grasmere, Ambleside, Keswick and Windermere – the 555 bus route – was invaded by a flock of life sized decorated fantasy Herdwicks. Herdwick ewes and lambs were found in unexpected places; in parks, in the street, on buildings, in shops, cafes and restaurants – all paying homage to the Herdwick’s iconic home here in the Lake District; and all in the name of the Lake District Calvert Trust.
I was asked to illustrate a lamb as part of the trail. I covered it in illustrations based on my 'Kendal to Keswick' illustrated map that I created in my final year at Art School. The ewes and lambs were then auctioned at the end of the summer. My L'al Wanderer Lamb sold for £1,200, but the highest bid went for a Ewe by Mandy Allenn at £20,000!
