…whaa???…

DOUG… what’s your possum doing over here?? Now Donald and I both have your darn possums roaming around on our web pages. There goes the neighborhood…

The Comments

Doug Jones

Great! Here’s the deal… I doodle them… you color them… Don sells them… and we split everything 50-50. deal or no deal?

Dennis Jones

…the 3 of us split things 50-50?… that math works for me!

Doug Jones

It’s BrotherJones math!

Roballoo!

Reminds me of an old Mad magaizne piece about different cartoonists finishing each other’s strips. There was a Miss Peach/ Steve Canyon mashup that was funny I recall. Now, I want to see Doug finish up a Dennis Jones Sketch! It’s only fair.

Frederator Studio Interview

November 13, 2006

SamuraiBear

…Samurai Bear…

I just had an INTERVIEW published on the Frederator Studios Blog you might enjoy looking at. About the only thing I am an expert on these days is me… so other than the parts that I made up, this is a quality piece of journalism.

I also painted this bear over the weekend… but it has absolutely nothing to do with the Frederator interview… for you Ozark-Americans, that’s called a non-sequitur.

The Comments

Don Jones

Great interview Dennis. I especially liked the part of “taking someone down with you”.

Dennis, Another piece of the Dennis life and genius revealed! I like Mort’s work and everybody loves Jack Davis…but your stuff is like those guys on steriods. Ah, er the above was meant to be a compliment?

Dennis Jones

…hey, I’d take that as a compliment even if it were meant as an insult…

Don Jones

Dennis, are you juicin’ now days?

Dennis Jones

…I do enjoy a frosty cold glass of O.J. occasionally…

Don Jones

I pick-up a container of the GROVESTAND variety of O.J. The pulp was so thick I thought I was gonna have to spoon it out. Janson gagged on it.

bernardfromtheyard

Hey, I hope you guys are not kidding because I’m writing all this down…and old expiring artist like myself can’t afford to pick up and go to missouri state to learn how to paint like Dennis so I figger I mize well do the juice. Now do I drink all of this out of a Gourd?

Roballoo!

Awsome Samuri Bear! I really think you nailed this one.

Mark Behm

I find this guy particularly cool! Love all the little details.

bretelle

hello! i’m french i live in Paris.. i love your style! You’re great very good! thank for your art! scuse my english

Doug Jones

I saw the original art on this piece. Dennis came down to visit some clients and this was something he brought with him. I was surprised by the size of it. It’s big! oh… and I DO think the O.J. is the secret…

roballoo

How big is big? All I see is a measly 380×216 pixels. It must be really impressive in person. in the tradition of Howard Pyle/N.C. Wyeth is this the beginning if a grand adventure book? The adventures of a grizzled O.J. drinkin’ samurai clad warrior bear could be the next big thing.

Dennis Jones

…now you have me going again, RobalLOO… if you could just flesh out that orange juice drinkin’, samurai warrior bear story a bit I would be all over doing that…

Injecting Fantasy Into Football

November 28, 2006

WaterlooWhales

…All-Pro Billy Bob Durkins…

I came across this old sketch and it reminded me of how much fun I used to have with fantasy football. I started up a league back in the 90’s when I lived in Texas, and part of the fun for me was developing helmets, uniforms, and histories for all of our pretend teams.

One of the guys named his team the Waterloo, Iowa White Whales. I decided all the players on his team should be overweight, (since they were whales) and have three numbers on their jerseys instead of two. Reading my notes on this page, apparently this is their all-pro cornerback Billy Bob Durkins who is the lightest member of the team at 386 pounds.

The Comments

Doug Jones

was this the player whose left ankle snapped under the strain and had to ride the pine the rest of the season?

Don Jones

Billy Bob was the best “undrafted” cornerback in the league. He had a real hankerin’ for the buffets in Waterloo.

Dennis Jones

…that team could run an “all you can eat” buffet restaurant out of business…

Don Jones

I’ve just acquired an awesome football photo to post… tomorrow. Stay tuned.

Doug Jones

stay tuned to what channel?

Don Jones

That would be KLBJ… on your radio dial. Komplete Lackluster Brother Jones broadcasting 24/7 in the lovely 5.1 monophonic chromacolor sound from the beautiful meth-infested hills of the Missouri Ozarks.

KLBJ sounds like one of those new translations of the Bible.
