No Release today...

With all the stuff I have had to do in the past little bit there won't be an art release today... I am giving my design team a little longer to get things done, so next Thursday they will be released. In the meantime while drawing last night I had someone pop in my head and here he is. His name is Azrael... Someone on a post or message to me had mentioned that their son or daughter would like to see a Goth Dragon. Hopefully he does the Goth world justice and isn't too cutesy...













I have a sneek peek of some up coming stuff for all the poeple who check my blog regularly...













And finally. A friend of mine sent me an email asking to spread the word and get some cards sent to a 12 yr old girl who recently lost her arm in a boating accident...The link to her blog is here, she is giving away blog candy as well, and I will also give each person who sends this girl a card a free download... Place a comment in this post with a link to your card and send me an email letting me what digi you'd like for free... and I will get it to you... might be a slower response this weekend. We are heading up to Midway, Utah to go to Swiss Days... So I will be around on and off this weekend...

We all understand that you have other things to do besides sit at your desk and draw us images! LOL!
The goth dragon is great and those sneak peeks are making me "drool!" LOL!
Have fun at "Swiss Days!" I never heard of that before. Let us know what happens there, especially anything connected with FOOD! LOL!

Excellent as usual...
So what's up with the new special? You are SUCH a tease! Seriously, thank you for all you do and enjoy the weekend!

Love the goth dragon... I think it'd be perfect for what they were looking for... looks goth to me... are we allowed to steal him and use him or is he gonna be up for sale soon?!
I'll work on a card for that poor girl later today.
Love the new sneak peeks as well! :-)

sam said...

I love the Goth Dragon he's cute (but don't tell him that),the sneak peeks look fab too. On the other note, I had seen this on another blog, apparently she's trying to get 100 cards sent to her. It's a fabulous idea and if I get time I will get one done for her.
Keep up the great work anyway
Take care

Wow great great sneak peeks!

Hey Dustin. Azreal is just gorgeous as are all your drawings!! Is he named after the Archangel of Death or the DC comics character?
Did you know you are almost (in)famous here in Australia? I was coloring in BooBoo Dragon and my 18yo son said that he looked like one of Dustin Pikes images. Apparently they studied your work as part of there Year 12 art classes. How cool is that?? I impressed my 18yo son!!! Wait till he sees my Christmas Chameleon!! LOL I will make the young lady a card this weekend. I won't take advantage of your very generous free download offer though. I asked a similar favour from all my cyber friends not long ago and the very least I can do is reciprocate when I can.
Have a wonderful weekend just chillin'!!
Cheers

I know you don't want to hear that this is CUTE! But the smiling vampire bat tshirt, teddy bear and lunch box are fun. The nose ring keeps it from being ADORABLE ! hehe. Have a great weekend. hugs...

Great Goth dragon! He's adorable.

Jnett said...

Your stuff is just too cute. I'm sending Paige a card as soon as Erin gets me the snail mail. I posted a picture here http://www.flickr.com/photos/jnettsplace/3947528309/ as I don't have a blog yet. I'd love the party elephant if you wouldn't mind. If you'd like, you can just send it with the png's that I requested the other day (either to the wowway acct or my gmail).

Thanks,
Jeannette aka Jnett
