Batman and Dishonored art auctioned for charity

Bid on original artworks for SpecialEffect gaming charity

Concept art and visuals from leading game series like Dishonored and Batman: Arkham City are being auctioned off for charity.

Original artworks formed part of last month's London Games Art Exhibitionand are now being sold to the highest bidder in order to raise funds for the very worthy cause of SpecialEffect, the UK-based charity dedicated to helping disabled people enjoy video games.

Over a hundred pieces of original concept art were originally on display at City Hall including works from Mind Candy, Sports Interactive, Lionhead and Konami who participated as part of the Metal Gear Solid 25th anniversary celebrations.

The first auction starts today and will include Batman: Arkham City art, two Fable drawings signed by Peter Molyneux and other works from games such as Tomb Raider, Dishonored and Moshi Monsters.

A further three weekly auctions are planned between now and December 3rd and full details will become available on the London Games Art Web site, where you'll also be able to get a preview of some of the artworks up for grabs and of course plan your own bid for a very worthy cause.
