The pair hopes to raise even more with sales of the limited edition, signed prints, available through www.hintzstudios.com.

“I’m happy our artwork raised some money, and hope we sell all of the prints,” said Reagan, who has spinal muscular atrophy, a painful neuromuscular disease. "It makes me feel really good that I can help MDA by sharing things I love to do. I can’t wait to make some more art with Mat, he was really fun to work with.”

Hintz will donate 10 percent to MDA of any commissioned artwork he paints through the end of 2013. In addition, the pair is planning to work together on future projects, such as the MDA Black-N-Blue Ball in 2014.
