Stars including David Walliams, Jamie Lee Curtis and Florence Welch have contributed a list of things which make them happy for artworks to raise money for a new museum. Artists were tasked with turning the lists into illustrations and paintings to be auctioned at auction house Sotheby's in London next month (Dec12) to raise funds for the Museum of British Illustration. Famed children's book illustrator Quentin Blake depicted David Walliams swimming while his supermodel wife Lara Stone stands on the riverbank with a stopwatch surrounded by spaghetti, pyjamas and their dog Bert chewing on a shoe. Lee Curtis picked cereal with milk, clogs and a black T-shirt by fashion designer Jil Sander while British author/journalist Jeremy Paxman chose Evelyn Waugh's novel Decline and Fall and Bollito Misto, an Italian dish of boiled meats.
