Ice Bucket Doodle

Who needs water when you've got a pencil?

Thanks, Karl Newson, for the Ice Bucket Doodle nomination. Here's my 'The Queen's Hat' Ice Bucket Doodle! I've made my nominations on Twitter. 

This new and fun illustrator's take on the Ice Bucket Challenge was kicked off by children's book illustrator, Mark A Chambers, to raise awareness and funds for MND (Motor Neurone Disease) Association, which can be done by texting "iced55" and an amount to 70070. Several doodlers have made donations to various other charities as the challenge has snowballed through the Twittersphere - any donation to any charity is a great deed! I must admit that I wasn't aware that MND Association was the charity of choice for this illustrator's 'ice bucket' variant, until I discovered the first batch of Ice Bucket Doodles shortly after tweeting mine. I donated to Barnardo's and have since donated to MND Association, which is the only national charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland focused on MND care, research and campaigning.

Below are some of my favourite Ice Bucket Doodles by fellow children's book illustrators that I found by searching for tweets tagged with #icebucketdoodle. I'm sure there are loads more (than the ones I found) floating about the net.

Here's Mark A Chambers's doodle that kick-started this challenge along with Benji Davies's and Erika Meza's (via Waterstone's tweet). This is such a great idea, Mark!

And here's Karl Newson's. Thanks, Karl, for the nomination!
