…Waiter! Bring me a crocodile sandwich… and make it snappy!

Yesterday I got out of bed, drank some coffee and did some stuff. Today I think I will do the same… but perhaps I will add some different stuff to the mix… we’ll see.

Don Jones

Fantastico. From the looks of these birds you probably have some powerwashing to do around the homestead.

Dennis Jones

…Nasa has certainly been quiet lately… what’s up with that?

Doug Jones

speaking of LOST… I watched the season finale again yesterday and it is SO good. Finally some movement in the story line. I need one of those Fail Safe keys for my garage. I could turn the key and after bright lights and loud noises… all the junk would be gone. … but what about the dinosaurs… when they gonna explain THAT?

Dennis Jones

…Moo caught a rabbit yesterday… whatta dog! …kinda stinks for the rabbit tho…

Doug Jones

a ukulele has four strings

Dennis Jones

…at noon I saw a lady on TV that makes pictures out of dryer lint… creepy, yet strangely intriguing…

Don Jones

I have fallen and I can’t get up.

Dennis Jones

…I have been keeping an eye on the Colts during the off-season… hardly any of them in jail yet… I therefore predict a good season for them this year…

Don Jones

DATELINE- Nashville, TN Steve McNair to announce his departure from the misdirected Titans this afternoon and his deliverance into the Promise Land of the NFL east, the Baltimore Ravens. (conditional on him passing a physical) He’s never completely 100 percent, is he?

Dennis Jones

…I had to join MYSPACE.COM to be able to look at some pictures Nick told me I needed to look at there… my name is TORONTOSAURUS and I have no friends on that site… much the same situation I have going here…

Don Jones

My take on MYSPACE is that it’s a vast human wasteland. I’M IN!!!

Doug Jones

that’s probablly where our 8 visitors went… I’d rather hang out at Blogger myself… higher class of geeks there.

Doug Jones

yeah… the BIG news is McNair has left the Teen Titans for the Ravenoids. Hope he does good there. EVERYBODY in Nashville likes him and hates to see him go… but as they are saying… business is business….

Dennis Jones

I posted a FABULOUS VIDEO ON MYSPACE that I shot MYSELF!… but I think you have to sign up for a MYSPACE space to be able to see it…

…hmmm …would it be worth it to see the video? …or not?

Doug Jones

not

Doug Jones

hmmmm… that looked a lot like SocMo walking out of a revolving door… followed by NJE… two celebrities!

Dennis Jones

…did you have to sign up for MYSPACE to see the video or were you able to just view it?

Doug Jones

no sign up… it just worked! …my lucky day

Roballoo

Don’t worry Dennis, I’m your friend.

Dennis Jones

…man …I cant find my scissors anywhere …and there’s no one else in the house to blame the missing scissors on …so I guess I must have lost them …nothing worse than losing an important item AND not having anyone to blame it on…

Doug Jones

look over on that table where you were just cutting out paper dolls…

Don Jones

Nothing that a Dremmel tool couldn’t handle in its place.

Dennis Jones

…I found my missing scissors… they were on my drawing table… under a pile of stuff… I gotta get better organized…

Don Jones

You might check out that new software iBlind. Helps navigate around for all that stuff that’s right in front of you yet still can’t see. It works seamlessly with iDeaf. And you probably guessed the third piece of the trifecta software… iDumb.

Blogger

I enjoy looking at artist’s work over on Blogger. I think it’s because I can dial into the front page of someone’s site and see several pieces of artwork on it without having to navigate through a ton of pages searching for it. With that in mind, I snagged a bunch of illustrations that I have previously posted here at Brother Jones and slapped them together on a Blogger page. Same old artwork, now in one convenient place.

The Comments

Doug Jones

Gosh… I hope Keegan doesn’t hear about this….

Don Jones

I like what you’ve done in your place… tasteful new sidebars… the gradient behind the DJ-ART logo is… what’s the word I’m looking for? Swanky!?

Dennis Jones

…as I was looking through my Brother Jones folder for artwork to post on Blogger I realized the majority of things I post here are pictures of vegetables, lawnmowers and our heads photoshopped onto movie posters…

Don Jones

You mean the good stuff…

Doug Jones

I want my head photoshopped on a vegetable.

Doug Jones

Hey… are you still working your way through your iTunes music list?

Dennis Jones

…yes… I am currently on M’s… specifically, Mr. Downtown, Mr. Flutter, Mr. Greedyman, Mr. Powell, Mr. Roboto, Mr. Webster, Mr. Wilson, Mrs. Robinson, Mrs. Vanderbilt, etc….

Doug Jones

ooo…. just the mention of Mr Downtown gets the tune stuck in my head…

Weasel Ranching

September 26, 2007

BloggerProfile

Everyone over on Blogger has a profile page where they list things they are interested in. If you click on them it shows you a page of all the other “Bloggers” that share that same interest. Out of the half a gazillion people with Blogger pages, I seem to be the only one interested in Weasel Ranching… sigh…

The Comments

Doug Jones

Oh… there are tons of weasel ranchers out there. They are just afraid to admit it to anyone. I’d like a nice juicy weaselburger right now, with fries… and a mocha shake…

Dennis Jones

…Doug if you would just list weasel ranching as one of your interests, at least there would be two of us on the weasel ranching page…

Doug Jones

Bad day on the ranch…

Jason Bourne

I wonder what an ostrichburger would taste like?

Doug Jones

hey there, Jason B… how old are you?

Jason Bourne

Salutations. Im 28, and in Texas.

Don Jones

Hey there Jason B… do you have a real job other that your CIA gig?

Jason Bourne

Not yet. I hope to be an illustrator and maybe get do what Disney did and Veggie Tales.

When Pigs Fly Barn Sketch

October 8, 2008

WPFbarn

I’m still working round the clock, so since there is nothing new or experimental to show here, I will post some sketches from the “When Pigs Fly” game.

More and more, I’m being asked for Photoshop files with all the different elements of the illustration separated out and placed on their own individual layers. This way, the designers can move the different parts of the picture around to fit their type.

This was an idea for the barn on the cover which was not used.

The Comments

Don Jones

I see some similarities to Grandpa Grantham’s barn… the only thing missing… flying tobacco pouches!

Jason Bourne

Swanky! I like the cannon.

Bernard

I love mega elements in a whole sketch like this! Reminds me of the really old comic novels from mad…took hours/days to find everything. I’m getting similar requests from my customers for the PSD layer thing or even individual pieces that make up the whole sketch. Whatz everybody’s feelings on this? I guess if their paying for it it’s okay…I just don’t always draw everything separately that way.

Jon Slone

I’m a writer and illustrator of children’s books for both kids and adults. Everyone asks me if I have a website. Currently, I do not. Any advice on who to turn to? The do’s and don’ts maybe? Thanks.

Dennis Jones

…hey Jon, I think your best bet would be to go over to Blogger.Com and create one of those… they are free and they are easy to do…

Jon Slone

Thank you. I’ll look in to it. Now I’m off to barnes and noble to do a reding/signing. My book is “Riggleberry Bloke” if you want to check it out on barnesandnoble.com
