London: A bloody self-portrait of British rocker Pete Doherty is up for sale at USD 37,500.
The macabre sketch was created by The Libertines star in 2010 for a fan called Alistair using his own blood, reports contactmusic.com.
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 through the post.
Bosses at Paul Fraser collectibles will handle the sale.
