Hey guys, thanks for all the great birthday wishes, making me feel guilty for not updating and stuff. I've been away because of... well, life.  mostly due to an immense increase in deadlines ever since Batman: Lil Gotham went twice a month. I basically went from painting 10 pages a month, to 20 pages a month + other freelance gigs outside of comics.

I realize regular books are ALL 20 pages, but to put it in perspective- it went from just penciling about 20-30 pages a month ( JUST pencils) + a few painted covers, to penciling and then painting ( or as my buddy Tu likes to say " if you call that painting" ) and also, co-writing 20 pages a month. It's been very very straining on my life/schedule. That and the simple fact that my my kids have gotten to the age where they require more of my time than ever, makes it almsot impossible to get have any kind of breathing room in between deadlines and sleep. I've been on tumblr more than anything because its where i can just camera/phone some stuff and theres an app that lets me shoot it there. I've always liked to upload more finalized pieces to dA, i think the community here appreciates the whole.

in the next few weeks i'll try to get this page more up to date, i love the community here and have always appreciated the feedback. Thanks for still continuing to visit and giving the gallery a browse, i noticed a ton of my friends have changed their usernames as well.

alright,  time for bed.

thanks again for all the well wishes, reminding me in gettin OLD :D

Hi Dustin,
I am a long time of your work.  Batman is my guy and your depictions of him are amongst my favorites.
I am the art teacher at a school here in Manhattan.  The school serves students ages 5-21 with developmental delays such as Autism Spectrum Disorder.
I conduct a weekly comic book club club for some of our students because it is a huge passion of theirs.  We draw, discuss comic books, video games...etc...
I am reaching out to you to see if you would have interest/ availability to visit with these students.  It would be a very special opportunity for them to meet a professional comic book artist as that is something mant of them have an interest in doing professionally.
I would be happy to speak further about this at your convenience.
I can be reached at
Thank you so much for your time and consideration of this matter.
all the best
