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.

Slughorn’s is by far the best.

I can’t help thinking these aren’t going to raise a huge amount, but it would be cool if I’m wrong! I respect these guys for donating to charity, but I think a few of them could have put in a bit more effort. Look at Broadbent’s doodle- it was really good!

I was pretty cut that all Dan did was sign a photo. It will still probably sell for more than most of the others though haha

Come on folks, Dan’s picture isn’t just signed. It is his doodle. He doodled a black eye on it. It is not much, but it does make it funnier. I’m pretty sure that the original pic didn’t have a black eye.
