@criminalminds on twitter told me that they could get Joe Mantegna to sign this, if I would donate the drawing, then it could be auctioned to raise money for the ACS (American Cancer Society).
I'm totally willing to do that! I myself survived Malignant Melanoma skin cancer 3 years ago, and lost my only brother to the same cancer in June of 2005, in fact, today would have been his Birthday
I had a small mole on my lower back that changed colors one year. Thank God I had it removed before it spread to my liver or lungs! Now I go twice a year to the Dermatologist to get checked!
Anyway, it would be too cool if old Joe actually saw and signed this. I plan to do the same with the rest of the Criminal Minds team. This also gave me an idea? What if I got in touch with the managers or publicist companies of some of these celebs I draw, and took the same approach? Sign, auction, donate to some charity. THAT way, the celeb would see it, maybe follow me on twitter, I'd get 10,000,000 followers, get noticed, make millions of dollars so I can get out of real estate after 25 years?!?!? Moohahahaha
