It may sound gruesome and even macabre, but Pete Doherty has created a postcard artwork using his own blood, and it will soon be raffled for charity.

A number of local celebrities from the English county of Wiltshire were asked to decorate the cards for the We Love Marlborough initiative, a program celebrating Doherty’s current hometown. The singer used his own blood to create a painting, depicting three band members – two guitarists and a drummer – with musical notes in the air above them. He then used a pencil to write a poem – in French – describing a fumbling man with dirty hands putting on his hat. The postcard is signed on the reverse “Peter Doherty, Babyshambles.”

Doherty’s card will be displayed until the end of July in the Morgan Boyce Gallery in Malborough, when it will be raffled for charity. Raffle tickets cost £5 each –available from the gallery – and all money will go to local and national charities.

The painting can also be viewed online at the We Love Marlborough website.
