Bidding was up to a grand last time I looked. Too rich for my blood.

But you can buy poster reproductions of the paintings from the website and also a brouchure featuring all the paintings for £5.

Me too. No way can I afford a grand, :cry: . Would love to have it on my wall though, it is delightfully weird :twisted: .

My word, that is freaky O_O Cool but most definitely freaky.

Hope it goes for a good amount though!

Looking at the site it's interesting to see who else has contributed - cool to see Anthony Head in there :)

Tony Head's dog is SOOO cute. I think Kate Winset's is funny.

Every time, and I've posted in it twice!

That really is terrifying! Hahahah. I love you, Reece, but there is no way I could have that on my wall. :lol:

Mackenzie Crook's is brilliant! It's quite possibly my favorite. Kate Winslet's? Cheeky. ;)
