A Freebie and a Request...Please UPDATED again

 First of all the freebie...It's from an illustration I did a while back and lots of people asked for it as a stamp...
Secondly there is a young lady in my daughter's dance studio 18 yrs old, Just a few months ago she was diagnosed with MS(multiple sclerosis) 
She had lost her eyesight in one eye temporarily but it has since returned. Her family is awesome, her younger sister is my youngest's best friend at dance. On June 21st we have a swim party for the dance studio at a local pool, I would like to give her a box full of cards from all over the world that night. It's almost a month away and right now I can't give you all a set or a few digi's for doing it til I get these 3 books finished. but later I could. I know it's a lot to ask for some and others not so much. Her name is McKenzie, now I know my stamps aren't mostly for 18 yr old girls, so any card, any stamp will do, one card from everyone who could do it might just make her day, she's been struggling since dance is everything to her. If you'd like you can send them to me, email me and I will send you my address, if you'd like to wait I will see if they can't be sent to the studio, but we are one a 3 week dance break (well deserved I might add) and so I don't know if they'd just sit there, so if you'd like send them to me and I will collect them all then find a neat way to give them to her at he party...There was a dance she was in as well as most of the studio titled "Stand By Me" and they dedicated the dance to her at every competition we did since learning what she had, I don't know if that will inspire anyone in the card making process, but if you could do this I would be really grateful.

I only put that she was close to 18 or there abouts so you all knew what kind of card to make, these are cards of encouragement not birthday cards... :)

My new address is

Dustin Pike

P.O. Box 901
Roy Utah, 84067

Book Roughs...

Can't tell you the story names or ideas (though I think you can guess for the most part) but I am allowed to share a few roughs of work in progress of the 2 books I am currently working on illustrating, they will be available online and as soon as I know more I will pass it along...

These are really rough, they will be full color when finished, still going the rounds with the authors etc...

Zoo's coming...

Thursday's the big day. Doodle Dragon Zoo is released, 24 images, Black N White, AND Color. The colored ones are shown here. PNG and JPG versions as well... All for $5.00.

Last time I told everyone I was working on a book/illustrations, well I now have been assigned another, so I will have 2 books here in the next little while. Both are in the early stages, roughs only waiting for author feedback. The first one for sure I know will be available online, the second I am waiting to hear back on, as soon as I can show something or give a little more info I will...

I have also been roughing out an "Awareness" themed set, Autism and Pink Ribbon kind of stuff, Is there too much of this out there? or is it something my Doodle Dragon Fans could use???

Back on Track...

Well Sort of, A day late with the freebie. I have everything in the world going on right now and then got a freelance job illustrating a book. No not my own, someone else wrote the story, as soon as I can share more I will. In the meantime enjoy this little monkey, I have contemplated an OZ set for a while and he has been hanging around for some time...

Been a while...

Hopefully everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day yesterday, I meant to post something, but between house visits, church and Mother's Day things for the wife, it kinda took up the whole day. I just wanted to have show and tell with something I threw together for my wife.

I am busy working on the zoo art, and a few other surprises and now will be illustrating a story for another writer, when I can say more I will.
