Vivid Imaginations Vintage Collectibles

Saturday, February 5th, 2022

This website is a Wallace and Gromit fan site devoted to news. However, on a more personal note, during the pandemic I’ve taken up collecting. I’ve always had a meager Wallace and Gromit collection, but with all vacations and other travel put on hold, and being largely at home, in 2021 I started perusing eBay […]

DIY Aardman Book Private Film Festival

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2021

When the book Aardman: An Epic Journey came out, I scoured the internet for a reasonable way to get a copy in the US, but came up largely empty. Thankfully, it was published as A Grand Success! in the US three months later, and I quickly bought a copy. Then it entered the abyss of […]

A touch painful on re-entry: I’m back after five years!

Monday, February 8th, 2021

I was standing in line at a grocery store recently wearing my new Wallace and Gromit t-shirt from Threadless (via the new Aardman’s Artist shop!) and a gentleman behind me in line mentioned that he was a fan. We were both excited by this fact, fans in the US are not particularly common, so I’m […]

Wow, it’s been a while! Lack of updates is completely on my end, with work and other responsibilities piling up on my end this year, finding time to update this site with Wallace and Gromit news has slipped through the cracks (note: if you’d like to help, please drop me a line: The year […]

More Unleashed news, music, Wesleydale, LeapPad and the BIG bake

Saturday, January 4th, 2014

Happy New Year, Wallace and Gromit fans! For the holidays this year, I ordered a copy of The Art of Gromit Unleashed, which wasn’t cheap when shipping to the US was added, but was worth it. Between the articles I’ve read on the Gromits and the background information about every Gromit provided in this book, […]

Gromit Unleashed wrap-up

I have already written about some of the exciting things Wallace and Gromit were up to over the summer, but the biggest one of all was the Gromit Unleashed art display in Bristol, UK!
