A number of actors from the Harry Potter films have donated original doodles for National Doodle Day 2009, a charitable event that benefits Epilepsy Action and the Neurofibromatosis Association.  This year, actors Dan Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Imelda Staunton (Umbridge), Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid), Sean Biggerstaff (Oliver Wood), Zoe Wanamaker (Madam Hooch), and Jim Broadbent (Slughorn), are among the slew of celebrities to show off their artistic ability and donate their work for this cause.  The full gallery of doodles, including Mr. Broadbent's very detailed and artistic sketch, can be viewed here.  An auction will start on February 27th for these pieces, all proceeds of which will go to benefit those who are affected by epilepsy and neurofibromatosis.  Additionally, voting is open to choose your favorite celebrity doodle of 2009.  More information about the two charities can be found here, while additional auction information can be found via this link.

Jim Broadbent’s is great and I like ’Dolores’’ kittens! Disappointed that Dan’s wasn’t a doodle. But there are quite a few other signed photos on the site so he’s not the only one. At least it will make money for a good cause. Maybe he’s just not artistic. If you’re not artistic and are asked to contribute then it’s hard to come up with something; I’ve been in the same situation myself. Maybe he thought he needed to do something good; someone should tell him it can just be a scribble of nothing.

i think Dan’s wasn’t a doodle because of dan can’t doodle (his dyspraxia)

No doodle from Dan? Disappointing. Robbie Coltrane’s is excellent. Also really liked Jonathan Stewart and Heston Blumenthal’s doodles. May have to place a bid! Very cool charity fundraiser!!
