If you were to break that down, it is a
"Prize Worth over $300!!!!! INCREDIBLE!!!"
If you are not familiar with Dustin Pike, this is what I have learned about him.…..he has been drawing/doodling for as long as he can remember. Even his homework in school had more doodles in the blank parts than it did answers...In school he tried to have more art classes than any other, he just didn’t get math, English was OK, but in art classes he knew what he was doing. He joined the US Air Force in 92 with the idea that he would do commercial art, advertising, something in a creative field and boy was he wrong. At Basic training he was informed he would be an AMMO troop, driving bombs and missiles around the flight line delivering them to the jets. He still doodled in the Air Force, designing tattoos for friends, drawing on the bombs before they were sent away. He just kept it going to keep up the practice. After that he worked for a printing company in Bountiful, Utah. He designed a whole line of clip art for the yearbooks that they published. After he left there, he found a few places to free-lance and do drawings here and there. 6 or 7 years ago he found a company that would scan and sell his designs for scrapbooks. He did that for a while and then learned how to do it all by himself and went out on my own. He drew a lot of moose, bears and bugs, but somewhere a dragon popped in, He doesn’t remember exactly when but he was born and he's been a part of his wonderful art ever since. With his rubber and digi stamps a very good friend of his Rikki sent him an email telling him he needed to look into rubber stamps, his style has clean crisp dark lines that would transfer over very well into the stamping world. He contacted a few companies, joined a few groups and had his first rubber set coming out May 2nd and the second set around the second week of May. In the meantime he found Digital Stamps. Drew a few, put them on Etsy just to test the waters and found himself dragged in...He has since started his own website mainly for digi stamps...and the rest is history.
Here is just a sample of what the MMSC10 Weekly Bonus Winner will WIN!!

As you all know I'm a huge Dustin Pike fan...no news there right!!!! and if you didn't know then you might want to check out some of my posts to see what I've made using just a few of Dustin's artwork. Let me tell you these images are so easy to work with and the creations you can make with them are endless.....I still haven't used all the ones he has given to the DT but I know I will......they are so much fun to color. His lines are so crisp and clear that even if you are not a great colorer they still look good. My son even loves to color them...that's why I always print out extra copies so we can do them together!
While you are here, go ahead and check out some of the creations that my fellow Doodle Dragon teammates have done......links are on my side bar!
