Final few hours left to bid for some unique Doctor Who items
A quick heads up to tell you that you have a few hours left to bid for some exciting, unique Doctor Who items, and donate some money to a well worthy charity in the process.
This week sees the final items of Doctor Who artwork up for auction by Arts For Hearts, the proceeds of which are donated to the Great Ormond Street Hospital to held fund research into organ transplants.
Concept artist Peter McKinstry – who has worked on the series itself – has donated two A2 prints of K9, both of which have been signed by the artist and the voice of K9, John Leeson. Also up for auction is a page of original comic artwork from Doctor Who Adventures by John Ross
The K9 cross section is one of the cross section illustrations Peter Mckinstry has been doing for the Doctor Who DVD Files Magazine . He was doing the K9 illustration in the evenings whilst working at Pinewood film studios on the new Snow White film. One of the people in the art dept there, in the same room him, happened to be John Leeson’s wife, who saw what he was doing and came over and asked why on Earth he was drawing a picture of K9. Some coincidence! So once he had completed the image he remembered the Art For Hearts auction and reckoned that a cross section of K9 complete with John Leeson’s signature on it might fetch a few pounds.
