Birmingham artist sells ‘bad’ doodles for charity – BBC News Everybody wins people wanting 3 drawings. I thought maybe you need to be down here, so I start giving free Jordans a big. A big ass fan That Conquers together that’s the kind of childish drawings, get some money for children’s hospital. That’S the best way. I can do it 20 / 4/5, as Picasso at the pilot Raphael, but a long time to find like a child. An artist who was inundated with requests for free pieces is rapidly earning a reputation for his “really bad drawings” .
Jon Arton is a photo-realist artist from Birmingham, but rather than giving away his artwork he started to respond to requests for free sketches by sending people “childlike” scribbles.
As his doodles became more and more popular, he saw an opportunity to raise money for charity and now sends the drawings to fans who make a donation to Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
So far he has raised more than £1,500.
