The Sixty decorated SuperDragons that were placed around Newport, South Wales, have been sold off at a charity auction, raising close to £100,000.
Tim created a dragon called “Scrum”, covered in rugby players, above left, and Ger painted “Shipley”, based on the city’s maritime history, and “Rodney”, above right, which was sponsored by Newport Gwent Dragons rugby team.
