Badjess

…we don’t need no steeenking badjess!

…ok, so in addition to a brand new prescription of those tasty Malaria pills I love so much, I also just got shots for Yellow Fever, Typhoid, Meningitis, Polio, Tetanus, Hepatitis A, and Hepatitis B. The health clinic awarded me the coveted, Batman Bandaid Of Courage, which I am still proudly wearing as a badge of honor…

Doug Jones

Dennis Jones

Bernard

A nudder Fine Peace ‘O art but is he going back to the future? What’s with the fading edges? As for all those shots…I can’t say what I would have rather done and be religiously correct on a public blog but you must feel like one of them tomato pin cushin’s our grandmothers used to have, eh?

Dennis Jones

Bernard

Too Late! I already did and WOW! Now I have another great place to stop for out-of-this-world artwork to look at. Great Stuff Gary. Have you parked the brushes yet to go digital or have you always been digital? 50/50, 60/40? I’m 20/20…with my glasses that is.

Don Jones

Just as long as you look like your Passport photo… you can get back into the U.S. in a few weeks… maybe.

Doug Jones

are you still hanging around the Webnet… or are you Out of AferKa?

Don Jones

I’ve got a feeling we are going to get tired of looking at this stinkin’ BadJess…

Bernard

I’ll second the commotion!

Roballoo!

Great Illo – fantastic melding of image and background texture – they really go well together. I also like your treatment of the hair – that mustache looks like it has a mind of it’s own. My only complaint is the brain ooze towards the top – glad I’m not the only one who saw that. That’s not good to look at before I go to lunch.

I saw some hippos in Africa… they looked like this… well, something like this… except they weren’t green… or furry… and I don’t think they had spots… but other than that, this is pretty much exactly what they looked like…

The Comments

Doug Jones

Hey… welcome back! This looks EXACTLY like a hippo to me. I saw one the other day in my backyard. Say… have you seen my glasses?

Dennis Jones

…I’m pretty sure I got the horns right…

Doug Jones

Will you be having a special slide show of your missionary trip to Aferka with a Love offering taken up at the end?

Jason Bourne

Hey welcome back to the USA. Nice, and nice background.

Cory Wasson

This doesn’t look like a dragon to me…. I saw the one you drew in february and was utterly disappointed. Completely Emasculated. I want fury and destruction, not malnourished and feeble. The Hippo was cool though. Well done sir.

Bernard

Dennis, Welcome back! I’ve been going crazy at work because you and your brothers are the only ones I know of that run active (respond) blogs! I was almost forced to start drawing myself with all th espare time I’ve had. Any misquito bites?

Don Jones

Glad you asked Bernard, Last night as I was painting my deck I was pretty much consumed by mosquitoes. Bites upon bites. Nothing that about a gallon of DEET wouldn’t fend off. My kidneys went into overdrive trying to filter the soaked in poison bug killer spray.

Dennis Jones

…Cory, the dragon is coming… I did, after all, enter into a binding legal contractual agreement to do one for you, so there is no way out for me… it will be later in July before it magically appears tho… glad you made it back ok… sounded like there was a bit of trouble with flights on the return trip…

Cory Wasson

It was incredibly miserable. Perhaps my agony on the trip could inspire u to draw a small feeble boy huddled in a ball of blankets on a plane shivering and downing a plethora of medicines. It was that bad. But i’m home now, and I’m almost eating food again, so its all good. The trip was wonderful though, even the last part couldn’t taint my memory of the time we had.

Roballoo

Are those candy canes sprouting from his head?

While in Africa, one of the guys asked me to draw a dragon. I couldn’t because it was so hot, every time I pulled my sketchbook out to draw the paper would become soaked with sweat. I told him I would draw a dragon when I got back to the states and post it on my website. So is this a dragon or just a dinosaur with flames shooting out of its nose? Good question. It’s all kinda the same thing to me…

The Comments

Jason Bourne

Rad! I think Dinos and dragons are not that different.  If an Iguana was 20 feet tall, it would practicaly be a dino…

Bernard

Awesome as usual…but maybe it’s a Senior Citizen Dragon? I think I seen a few of these hangin’ at Mickey D’s? Bummer on the Africa No Sketch zones.

Dan Lietha

Dragon/Dinosaurs WEEK on Brothers Jones! YES!

Don Jones

I just realized I had not checked in on this fantastic African Dragon with nasal flamage. What I like the best is the spotted skin texturization.

Marcelo from Brazil

in africa …dragon heart and jurassic park are in the same blockbuster shelve.
