Matthew Gray Gubler (aka Dr. Spencer Reid) on Criminal Minds, which is my newly discovered favorite show! I love all the characters, but my fav right now is Matthew!
Reid Quote: "I don't believe that intelligence can be accurately quantified, but I do have an IQ of 187, an eidetic memory, and I can read 20,000 words per minute."

I didn't know this until after I drew this, but apparently, his is also a sketch artist. I'm going to find a way to get this to him, via his agent or something?
Of course I used my needle trick to scratch out the hairs against the black background BEFORE applying graphite.

I wanted to do a small drawing, that I could finish in 1 evening...

The UN-ENLARGED view is an inch taller than the drawing
One more Quote from Criminal Minds (LOL)
Special Agent Derek Morgan: So tell me, what does keep young Dr. Reid awake at night? Wait, let me guess. Memorizing some obscure textbook? No, no, no. Working on cold fusion? No, I got it, I got it, I got it. Watching Star Trek and laughing at all the physics mistakes?
Dr. Spencer Reid: Actually, there aren't that many scientific errors in Star Trek, especially considering how long ago it was made. There are certain improbabilities, but not that many outright errors.
Special Agent Derek Morgan: Right.
