Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid), Nick Moran (Scabior), Richard Griffiths (Uncle Vernon), and Jessie Cave (Lavender Brown) have submitted a doodle for this year's National Doodle Day. Their doodles, along with others submitted by celebrities, will be auctioned on eBay starting March 2nd to raise money for Epilepsy Action. You can see their doodles here.

Very cool, and speaking as the parent of a kid with epilepsy, for a very worthy cause indeed. I’ve never heard of the vast majority of the ‘celebrities’ in the Celebrity Auction, but one of the best doodles is a very simple one of four pelicans a-swimming by Bill Nighy. You can also get a doodle of Wallace & Gromit by Nick Park! Robbie Coltrane drew his pen, and Richards Griffiths a concept for a poster for ‘Equus.’ The page is definitely worth a visit.
Many of the contributors are household names in the UK, actors, directors, comedians, playwrights, singers, musicians, TV presenters, explorers, a chef, fashion designer, artist, sports people, politicians. I suspect that the unfamiliar names are from the younger generation.
What about Julian Glover, voice of Aragog? They don’t mention him either.
It’s a good cause, and lots of great doodles, well worth a visit. I really like the one by Richard Griffiths.
