A bloody self-portrait of British rocker Pete Doherty is up for sale at $37,500.
The macabre sketch was created by The Libertines star in 2010 for a fan called Alistair – using his own blood.

The devotee approached Doherty backstage at a concert and asked the rock star if he could help him make some money. Doherty offered to paint something for him.

A week later, the blood portrait – signed ‘For Alistair, love Peter’ – arrived though the post.

Bosses at Paul Fraser Collectibles will handle the sale, according to
