This poor little boy didn't know what was going on. He was frightened of top with all of his bulky gear and booming voice. However, he WAS pretty excited about his new toy.
Well, it was a thrilling moment for me, at least. Here is Ville Valo of HIM on April 3, 2010, holding a drawing which I did for him. My husband threw it up on the stage and Ville bent over and picked it up and unrolled it and got a curious look on his face, then smiled and said, 'Now that's what I call art.' I almost fainted. hahahaha
Here is the drawing which I gave Ville. I like to think that he kept it.
