FilingSystem

…everything orderly placed… on the floor…

…a view to the east…

I just got my studio cleaned up for the first time in two years. Now instead of having piles of stuff strewn all over my floor, I have piles of stuff strewn all over my floor in orderly fashion.

I work on several jobs at a time and it would be easy for one of them to get lost in the shuffle. That is why I keep all current “in progress” jobs on my floor. This is a nuisance to me because I have to keep stepping over them, but it keeps me constantly thinking, “Man, I gotta get that job done and get it off my floor”.

Jobs are not the only thing I keep on my floor, though. If it’s important or something I have to remember, it is also on my floor. I leave the really, really important things in the doorway so that I have to step over them when I leave my room.

Oddly enough, my newly cleaned up studio looks pretty much exactly like my old messed up studio did.

The Comments

Bucky Jones

Dennis, any chance of you posting photos of the rest of your studio? I’d love to see your work space.

Doug Jones

very good organizational system you got goin, Dennis. I like it! This would explain the footprints I see occasionally on your artwork… and yeah…. you got two more picture spots… fill em up!

Don Jones

What I like about the floor filing system is that it is convenient and readily available. Whether it’s in the studio, the bedroom (clothes), the garage (tools) you can always quickly and easily file things away in a vertical dropping motion.

Dennis Jones

Hey… quit telling people what our house looks like…

Don Jones

That is our houseS… I say the more stuff on the floor… the longer the carpet will last.

Jeff

Airbrush the Texas flag on the Skull then we’re talking ART!

Dennis Jones

I was complaining to Jeff the other day in an email about the U.S. hockey team getting tied by Latvia in the Olympics and he wrote back and said, “Latvia… wasn’t he one of the drivers on Taxi..?”

you mean all those years of my Mom tellin’ me to pick up – I was the one who was organized!!! soupa sweet

Dennis Jones

…ok… I posted two new pictures of my work space for those of you who were interested…

Jeff

YOU’RE PRETTY TALL HOW MANY TIMES DID YOU SMACK YOUR HEAD UNTIL YOU GOT THE HANG OF THOSE CEILINGS?

Bucky Jones

Dennis, thanks for sharing these photos! That’s a great looking studio…and about the cleanest I’ve seen! Thanks again!

Nick Jones Everybody

you face the door now? That’s very corporate of you.

Don Jones

I detect from the “view from the east” that your recording studio is still up and functioning. Whip something up and send it down for a podcast! I’m liking that big old green handy trash can.

Dennis Jones

Jeff.. in my studio it is called the “ceiling of many names”…

Bucky… you ask for photos, you get photos…

Nick… I’m tired of people sneaking in on me…

Don… I’ll have you know that is a brand new Martha Stewart trash can from K-Mart…

Don Jones

I think you should complete the Martha Stewart Studio ensemble and get one of her knitted ponchos to draw and paint in. Could be a new fashion trend for discriminating artists?

Dennis Jones

…how do you know I’m not already using one?

Doug Jones

I thought you worked in the classic Martha Stewart orange jumpsuit prison outfit, Den. … say is that a CHEATING MACHINE I see there? You don’t CHEAT on your illustrations, do you?

Dennis Jones

…a cheating machine? …what’s a cheating machine?

Doug Jones

you know… you put the paper in one end, turn the crank, and out comes the illustration at the other end. I think I see a crank there. I really do… somewhere…

Jeff

FRED FLINTSTONE HAD ONE OF THOSE. THERE IS A BIRD IN THE INSIDE OF THE BOX WITH A PENCIL. THAT FRED,,WHAT AN ACTOR HUH?

Doug Jones

the best!

Dennis Jones

…disappointing that the Academy awarded him so few Oscars…

Don Jones

Fred had an early prototype of the Hybrid Honda… unbelievable gas mileage.

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.
