Who knew he was an artist? Benedict Cumberbatch draws self portrait for charity (EXPRESS)


The 36-year-old actor has drawn what looks like a self-portrait and has donated it to a a silent auction which is taking place at the Affordable Art Fair Hampstead this month.

The one-off postcard sized artwork will sit along other exclusive drawings by the likes of actress Whoopi Goldberg, U2 frontman Bono, and musician Julian Lennon.

In addition to the silent auction, other famous authors, artists and children have donated their miniature masterpieces to the New End School Association's (NESA) Secret Postcard Sale.

Cards by the likes of David Baddiel, actress Morwenna Banks, author Jeff Kinney, singer for Babybird, Stephen Jones and guitarist for Sigue Sigue Sputnik, Neal X, will all be sold for £45 each, but the artist's name will only be revealed to the buyer once it has been purchased.
