    oh, you're talking about prints ?? LOL (sorry, my mind was wondering)

    I won't fully discuss pricing on prints here on this site or selling until i can work a few things out with the admins ( i would like to kick back a good 5-10% to this site if they allow it), as well as i have to go back to my publisher down in Portland and work out the production costs/pricing this time around being that they are going to be published on full scale sizing, as well as on 3 different types of stock - limited giclee canvas (# of 50), limited giclee poster (# of 100), as well as standard poster (# of 250). My rough estimate however will be $300, $150, and $50 but that is not set in stone yet.

    ** originals are being kept by me, with the intentions of getting them endorsed (autographed) by the players themselves once this starts taking off.

  • Is this just a natural gift you were born with or did this require years of refinement?

    I am in awe of people that can do this kind of thing. Like prodigies that can compose entire symphonies on the spot while squaring pie as they juggle flaming knives. I hate you people. It's not really fair to us hard working, untalented blokes...

    Great work. Seems a shame to waste such ability on sports though. Try virginal mothers cradling anointed offspring, etc...

  • it's a hobby and talent i have had my entire life, i started dappling with turning it into a new career a few years ago, but put down the brushes for a girl that showed no true support for what i was wanting to accomplish (which is no longer around thank gawd) and now that i am back and focused on my goals and dreams, i am turning this gift of mine into... well, who knows what this may lead to ? but to me, if i work hard enough, stay positve, prove the doubters wrong and that i can succeed, i will be happy because this is what i just do - it is me.

    if you want to know more about pricing of prints which i will soon have available at the start of the season, just send me a PM and i will fill you in on the details

    there's a little story behind this picture ( JR PIC ) but i created this one day out of boredum while at work using lipstick, red highlighter, blue pen, black pen, makeup, and well... anything else i was able to find in the podium i worked from back in the days of managing the casinos. This was about 3 years ago and this was the first "artistic" thing i had done since highschool that got it all "going" to where i am now. This picture currently hangs matted and framed on a friends wall over 3,500 miles away

    yep, 36"x24" blank canvas. sketched it out using various pics as references, busted out a vast array of acrylic paints and my brushes, and it started somewhat like this...

    and ended up like you saw with the start of this thread after about 50 hours over a week span

  • Dustin, that is incredible work. I see a bright future for you. I will be very interested in getting some of your works man. Seriously, you gotta get this brought to Wilsons attention. I think he would be equally impressed. Great great job!

    110% DONE with that distraction. I try not to think about where i could be now if i didn't learn from "that" and well... i don't even care to talk about it much anymore. All it does now is provide me more motivation to do what I want to do from here on out and be successful to levels that she said i'd never get to...
