Weasel Chop

February 5, 2009

WeaselChop

When the Brothers Jones were growing up, we watched a children’s program on tv that featured Shari Lewis. She was a ventriloquist and her most famous sock puppet was named Lamb Chop. I have decided to pick up where she left off with my brand new sock creature, Weasel Chop.

Doug Jones

Amazing! I never saw your lips move!

Dennis Jones

…I’ve been practicing…

Don Jones

Who writes your material? Even though it’s a rehashed joke, I just can’t stop laughing.

Dennis Jones

…try pressing the little directional arrows in the lower right hand corner next to the Vimeo logo… I did and was shocked with what I got…

Doug Jones

I ended up on an island with an H bomb…

Dennis Jones

…I’ve been listening to a bunch of LOST podcasts lately… I’m thinking about doing my very own VIDEO Lost podcast… it will just be me and Weasel Chop formulating crackpot theories on where we think the show is headed…

Doug Jones

I have mixed feelings about LOST podcasts. Not knowing, and wondering what the heck is going on is half the fun. The podcasts just fill my noggin with lots of speculations and other folks opinions of what’s gonna happen… and THEY don’t know. BUT… WeaselChop… now THAT guy knows all… bring on the podcast!

Dennis Jones

…coming soon …the Uncle Denny & Weasel Chop LOST podcasts… we don’t know what happened to them… lost I guess…

Bernard Molek

They say that art is always evolving…gotta say that’s certainly true over here at Jones Bros. since I was last here. You forgot the heavy eyeliner that Cheri used to wear.

Dennis Jones

…Bernard, it’s hard to get that eyeliner on when you’ve got a puppet in one hand and a camera in the other… I tried, but I ended up looking like Alice Cooper…

…I don’t know what to say about this other than, if you really like cows and guns, this should land right in your wheelhouse.

Awesome video! Digital painting blows me away.

Don Jones

Bovine Freedom via Cintiq! These videos take Brother Jones down to the next level… good jorb!

Dennis Jones

…I’m going to milk this video thing as long as I can…

Don Jones

This one’s good for a month!

Dennis Jones

…well now that’s just udderly ridiculous, Don…

Doug Jones

that was a MOOving comment, Den…

Dennis Jones

…I can hardly wait for LOST this week… I’m hoping they’ll finally explain how the udders got onto the island…

Aaron

Is this Illustrator or Painter? I can’t tell cause its movin’ so fast! Good stuff, though….

Dennis Jones

…neither one Aaron, it’s Potatoshop… I mean Photoshop…

AD

Amazing one!

Zaz

Yep, it’s just another utterly cool Illustration from one of the Jones boys about.  Bonnie and Cow-Hided.

Lost Video Update

February 13, 2009

LostLogo

Little brother Don missed the hit TV show LOST this week, so I put together a little video update to get him caught up. Apparently he missed a whole lot of yelling and screaming.

The Comments

Doug Jones

Well… THAT just explains EVERYTHING! I will be watching for next week’s exciting episode, brotha…

nickjoneseverybody

wow. Has Pixar seen this? I’m seeing box office success in puppet animation short… On a separate note, is the front page screwed up for anyone else? The individual pages aren’t linked or something…

Dennis Jones

…hmmm …keeeeGAN! …help

Don Jones

This makes me laugh… LOST is now a comedy. I could hardly tell if I was on an island or in a third floor art studio in Indiana.

Dennis Jones

…if you couldn’t tell, perhaps you WERE in an art studio in Indiana during a different time! …have you experienced any disturbing flashes of light lately? …any nosebleeds?

Roballoo!

Loved seeing the menagerie of your sock puppet collection.

Custom Desk Hole

February 16, 2009

DeskHole

When we were growing up, it was always fun to go to our grandparent’s farm. Grandpa was a pretty creative guy and came up with all sorts of custom made things.

He took a square piece of plywood, cut a half circle out of one side, and Grandma would sit in her easy chair with the plywood resting on the arms of the chair and she would be in the center part that had been cut out. That was her work desk. I thought that was the coolest thing ever, because that plywood “desk” literally wrapped all the way around you.

The other day, my arm and shoulder was getting really sore from working long hours on the Cintiq and I realized I needed to support my elbow on something. I remembered Grandma’s desk, and twenty minutes later I had a hole cut out of my table top. It works great!

The Comments

Doug Jones

This is also similar to those baby chairs with the tray that surrounds the little tyke. Do you like to throw things in the floor and have Karen pick them up for you?

Don Jones

How long did it take to cut that out with your Dremel?

Doug Jones

so… if you stuff too much into your PIE hole, you can always Dremel out a larger DESK hole for yourself. Great idea!

Roballoo!

Although another interpretation of the photo could be that ol’ SocMo got a little hungry there. Wood ~ Yum!

Dennis Jones

…an excellent observation, robalLOO!

A Couple A Space Guys

February 18, 2009

GrantsGuys22

Here’s a couple of space guys… getting ready to go do something… probably something cosmic… out in space somewhere, I’m guessing…

The Comments

Don Jones

I can sense a looser, more “at-ease” Cintiq technique. Probably due to the modified table top… beautiful.

Bernard

Dennis, did I hear someone say you might have time tomorrow, to color (cintiq) a sketch I have for an upcoming poster I’m doing for my friends 50th birthday? —Can’t Konn a Kahn uh?

Doug Jones

looks like a new, improved Pedro Perez and the Cosmic Taco Jockeys suiting up for an adventure.

Dennis Jones

…si senior…

Dennis Jones

Doug Jones

what’s going on here? why is the video playing in your comments?

Don Jones

I’d say Dennis is doing a little cross cow marketing.

Dennis Jones

…I’m still experimenting with what the best way to post video on Brother Jones is… Nick seemed to suggest my page was still kinda messed up on his browser from posting video, so I was thinking I could maybe post them in the comment section without it effecting my main page… I kinda like it better in this smaller package anyway…

Roballoo!

Hey! That guy on the right has an “R” on his chest – could that be me in that space suit? One can only dream.

Dead Egyptian Blues

DeadEgyptianBlues2

Last night I did this little picture and recorded it. It’s really not all that great to watch because the rendering was all pretty subtle so you don’t see a whole lot happening, but the music (written by Michael Smith and performed by Trout Fishing In America) is fun to listen to.

I’m still in the process of experimenting with how to best load videos onto Brother Jones. Let’s see how this works. You need to click into the comments section to see the video, (for those who follow this page with an RSS reader, you’ll need to come to the page to get into the comments section). You can also visit my YouTube site to see it there.

it’s great that you can paint this while listening to only one song. You are FAST!

Zaz

What! Doug, he is amazingly fast…what’s your secret Oh great one….Karen’s coffee, Mountain Dew first thing in the morning….extra arms that only the Jones family know of. Dude, share with your fans your amazing speed.

Dennis Jones

…the secret of my amazing speed is the magic video compression button in my i-movie video making program…

Don Jones

I’m seeing an Oscar in your future.

Dennis Jones

…me, too. …an Oscar Mayer… hotdogs for lunch today!

Doug Jones

you may already be a weiner!

Doug Jones

That reference is so inside, that only I get it. Maybe I should explain… An old cartoon has a hot dog standing at his mailbox looking at a letter he has just received. The letter says… “you may already be a weiner!”

Dennis Jones

…oh, I got it… I laughed out loud when I read it!

Doug Jones

LOL? you did a LOL? amazing! (aren’t you sick of the whole LOL thing?)

Dennis Jones

…that’s why I write everything all the way out even if it takes forever… me and my best lil friend Mr. Spellcheck……

Doug Jones

Hey… they are all BACK ON THE ISLAND AGAIN! Woo hoo!…

Dennis Jones

…even Charlie the Hobbit?

Doug Jones

you just never know with LOST…

Dennis Jones

…wait a minute… I seem to remember he drowned last season while fighting with that little gollum fellow for a ring or something like that…

Bigonjee Boi

my names not roy

Dennis Jones

…he’s so coy…

Jeff

Wow I leave for a year and you are spearheading the comeback of the guy from bed knobs and broom sticks, or was it Mary Poppins? That Lion was never this cool. Good to be back. Jeff

Dennis Jones

…where ya been, Jeff?

Jeff

I am teaching at a local college. They have made me medical director over 2 campuses one in Arlington, and 1 in Atlanta. I teach scrub nurses.

WOW 2 posts for the price of 1

Don Jones

You know, sometimes the 2 for 1 Brother Jones posts are really a good value. Today is that day for you Jeff. Enjoy!

Dennis Jones

…that’s right, Don, I was running the 2 for 1 Comment Special today and it IS a good value… all a part of the Brother Jones Economic Stimulus Package you signed but failed to read… unfortunately, you and Doug will personally have to pay for Jeff’s second comment… it’s clearly spelled out on page 3,678,945…
