Mike Batt sketches Wombles for charity
Mike Batt was inundated with requests after offering some original sketches of the Wombles to raise money for good causes.
He started off drawing a few Wombles for fun, and shared video clips of his sketching on Twitter, offering to sign the artwork for charity.
He ended up agreeing to so many requests and donations that he had to work hard all weekend, saying:
“Sorry but can’t do any more ‘originals’ for now. Thanks for all the charity work you guys do. Sending out 50, signed.”
See the sketches he shared on Twitter below.
Having fun with my pens. If anyone has a sick kid or a charity auction, I'll happily sign it to them and send orig. pic.twitter.com/RUCpJ9UREp— Mike Batt LVO (@Mike_Batt) March 29, 2016

@Mike_Batt If I may ask, what sort of pens do you use for these? They look terrific :D— Chris Signore (@ChrisSignore1) March 30, 2016
"Tombow ABT" - they are great to use. Most art shops have them. A brush at one end and a fine tip at the other! M https://t.co/rzcRAhDFEs— Mike Batt LVO (@Mike_Batt) March 30, 2016

Tarnation! I missed the black line round the top of his hat! Ah well, maybe imperfection will make it more valuable. https://t.co/b2I80RTIBn— Mike Batt LVO (@Mike_Batt) April 14, 2016
