Thingumajig images are all over the web today on account of the launch of the Yorkshire Festival 2014, a series of county-wide events in preparations for the launch of the Tour de France in Yorkshire on July 5 and 6, 2014.
Our Hieronymus the hippo riding down the streets of Hebden Bridge is the featured image of the Fantasical Cycle Parade, a Handmade Parade event featuring giant bike puppets and bike art in the streets of Todmorden on April 26, 2014. Another PR photo for the event is the giant snail from the parade sections we created with the Wythenshawe community groups for the 2013 Manchester Day Parade. The snail is part Kerith Ogden (shell) and Andrew Kim (body). This creature was in a shopping mall in Leeds today as part of the launch as seen in this ITV Calendar segment!
The Hippo and Snail will be a part of the Fantastical Cycle Parade as will 4 new giant bike puppets including a giant bike bird by Andrew Kim and Noah Rose and Richard Dawson. Exciting times ahead!
