Bravo, Dustin Nunn! His enormous talent and imagination shine in his creative book of comics, Dustin and Darling. The art and creation of Dustin's characters makes them terrifically endearing, fun to look at, and the stories are fun to read.
We all need the good joy which Dustin and Darling offers us.
Dustin Nunn demonstrates great compassion, humor, and a good amount of joy in his drawings. A particular favorite for me is his faithful dog, Darling, clearly beloved by Dustin.
As it happens, Dustin has a form of autism. I hope Dustin is aware that he is living proof and a glorious example that people with autism and other special needs are extremely able, humorful, dignified, and incredibly creative.
What a spectacular inspiration this young man is in educating the world around him that gifted, talented, joyful people arrive on this planet in all kinds of packages!
Let's all take a cue from Justin--look at life with purpose, joy, humor, and let's throw in some courage here and there. And, as Justin would ask us via Dustin and Darling, lighten up!
