You’re Having a Giraffe: Giraffe of the Day

Sculpture Name: You’re Having a Giraffe

Artist Name: Reilly Creative

Sponsor Name: Printwell Colour Printers

You’re Having a Giraffe couldn’t be a more fitting theme for the City of Edinburgh, home to the Fringe, playing host to comedians both well-known and just starting out. Reilly Creative, the artist behind this sculpture, thought it would be fitting to decorate the giraffe with their favourite animal jokes, accompanied with colourful illustrations. 

Reilly Creative are an artistic husband and wife duo made up of Kieron and Lynsey. They have been painting for sculpture trails since 2015 and have continued to work together on many other creative ventures. When they aren’t working on a project together, Lynsey is a freelance artist, painting for theatres and theming companies across the UK and Kieron is a cartoonist, drawing caricatures digitally from photos for private commissions, weddings, events, and businesses. 

Sponsored by Printwell, You’re Having a Giraffe celebrates a city which is full of jokes and laughter and adds a few more.
