Who?
Many of you won't know who Dustin is, but a few weeks ago a link to Dustin's bigcartel shop was tweeted by Mike Mitchell. Dustin was offering to sketch anything buyers wanted for one hour. Many members took him up on this offer, some of them more than once.

I thought it'd be interesting to see what everyone received from him, as they come in, as well as followup with any future art released by Dustin.

So far, it looks like these are the only two added to the database:

Monolith

The Happiest Day of Batman's Life

I'm currently waiting on two myself. Please be sure to add yours and post them here.

Great idea for a thread. Can't wait to see what he does with "Jurassic Park" for me. Sounds like he is back logged and could take a while. I'm sure it will be worth it.

I just put an order in with him about an hour ago. He mentioned that he's backlogged about 30 hour prints.

I ordered a fourth. Can't wait to see it.

He sent an email out at the first of the year saying that he hadn't planned on offering up that many sketches and that it would take him quite a bit of time to get all the orders out. I replied letting him know I didn't need mine in any hurry. I actually advised I'd prefer for him to take his time, so he doesn't rush it and just put some random thing out there.

My initial idea of "The Saddest Day of Batman's Life" proved to be difficult, so we had to change it. Not sure what will become of that one. The other idea is "Ron Swanson: Give me all the bacon and eggs you have."

I did the same, I'm in no rush and appreciated him letting us know. My one word guideline was 'Panda', or if easier 'Bear'. Will post a picture when it arrives...

Great idea for a thread; Dustin is an awesome guy. Can't wait to see what you guys receive. :)

By the way, if anyone is a fan of Batman or dinosaurs, grab a copy of Tyrannosaurus Bats here: http://dharbin.bigcartel.com/product/pr ... aurus-bats. Two different sizes! Olly Moss™ approved! 8)

I was thinking of starting a thread for him, but laziness overtook me.

That Happiest Day is mine:

Damn, I'm pissed I missed out on the $50 sketch idea, looking forward to what everyone gets!

I have four of Dustin's 1-hour sketches; I've loved his stuff for a while now. :D Glad to see him getting some attention!

Here are my sketches:

Love -- http://www.flickr.com/photos/dharbin/56 ... 919053643/
The Future -- http://www.flickr.com/photos/dharbin/56 ... 919053643/ (I love this because it reminds me of Wall-E!)
Sci-Fi -- http://www.flickr.com/photos/dharbin/68 ... 919053643/
Fantasy -- http://www.flickr.com/photos/dharbin/68 ... 919053643/
(Sci-fi and Fantasy are framed together, as they were meant to be.)

Most of these one-hour ones, and even the other smaller originals he sells, they aren't really what I'd call sketches, more finished drawings, but he's so good you only see one or two corrections.

For example, Imagine getting this one. You write "Lightning," as a hint and this shows up. He does say this took a bit longer.

Just thought I'd bump this to let you guys know Dustin is doing a "raffle" until Monday for a chance to win some of his art. All the details are here. http://www.dharbin.com/blog/the-magic-dollar-raffle/

Just sent him an email about the sketch I purchased but I'm loving what is coming in. I forgot what I asked or but don't want to look it up as I now want it as a surprise :)
