Famous People’s Foxes

A fox in a Barbour and posh Hunter wellies – this could easily be a new member of Posy Simmonds’s wonderful cast of cartoon characters, along with Tamara Drewe, Gemma Bovery, George and Wendy Weber, smoothie Stanhope and the rest. He’s obviously a bounder, up to no good and sniffing out some dodgy possibilities. We guess he’s often to be found in a corner of the saloon bar in the village pub and we suspect his name is Guy – or possibly Piers.

About Slightly Famous People’s Foxes

In 2014 we wanted to celebrate our tenth anniversary in a way which might help a good cause. The result was a little book, Slightly Famous People’s Foxes, an original gallery of vulpine characters you’d be astonished to find poking around your dustbins, all kindly donated by friends of Slightly Foxed and brought to order by Oliver Pritchett, well known for his witty columns in the Sunday Telegraph.

All profits from the sale of the book (approximately £5,000) were donated to the Children’s Hospital School at Great Ormond Street which allows children to continue their education while they are there. To raise more money for the school the original fox drawings were auctioned in April 2015.
