Alfie is the creation of artist Helen Pittick who, inspired by the traditional children’s nursery rhyme, ‘Hey Diddle Diddle,’ has created a stunning illustration that appeals to young and old.
Helen’s design features a night time scene with lots of stars, a big happy ginger tabby cat playing the fiddle with musical notes and words of the rhyme floating in the night sky, with a big gold smiling moon on one side.
Helen also took inspiration from Colin Banyard, Chairman of the Kilbride Group who have sponsored the cow. Colin gave Helen a brief to create a cow with a theme for children so they could interact with it.
