It was with great pleasure that The BRISTOLIAN‘s spokespirate Jooohn Ag was today able to present the winner of the inaugural Gary Hopkins Portrait Meat Raffle competition, local internet personality @guriben, with his prize: a bag of meat to the value of £5, plus a certificate.
At a glittering ceremony hosted at the Bristol home of international piracy, the Llandoger Trow on King Street, @guriben received three tubes of what can only be described as rather grey-looking ‘sausage meat’ from one of south Bristol’s finest budget butcher’s.
Sadly the competition’s muse, Councillor Hopkins, was unable to attend himself due to a last-minute airport run.
Said the talented artist, whose exposure through The BRISTOLIAN has now brought him commissions:
I really wasn’t expected a real meat prize!
Well, the prize is definitely real, but we make no claims as to whether it is ‘meat’ or not…
