Aviator Sketch

My home state NFL football Colts won this week. So did Doug’s home state football Titans. Don… looks like a long year for you and your home state football Chefs… I mean Chiefs. At least they had a really good HBO special this year.

Great moustashe. My team, the Cowboys won last night also… And no one was chasing me (whew).

Don Jones

I was fortunate enough to see the Chiefs HBO show while I was in Indianapolis. Apparently, that was the high point for the season. I am sorry to report that I watched the FedEx Cup golf tourney and only switched to the Chief’s game on commercial breaks. It was more than I wanted to see of Coach Herm’s foncused football project.

Doug Jones

What are you sayin’… has the football season already started?

Don Jones

My prediction for the Chiefs… it’s already come and gone.

Dennis Jones

…well, I’d say the Chiefs will be at least as good as Cleveland this year…

Doug Jones

I enjoyed watching that old #4 cheesehead out there on the field. I find myself rooting for the old guys more and more…. dunno why…

Don Jones

I think the CHiefs will have their hands full with the dreaded Oakland Raidaaazzz. San Diego on the other hand… yeow. Tough.

Dennis Jones

…in that Green Bay game… did you see the Eagles fan in the crowd that had a big square chunk of aluminum foil on his head labeled Philadelphia Cream Cheese?

Doug Jones

missed seeing that…. dang!

Don Jones

I just heard someone say the Chiefs need to get Bill Cower back… Great idear.

Dennis Jones

…I say get Jerry Clower instead… remember that guy?

Don Jones

“Shoot up here amongst us!! One of us just has’ta get some relief!!!”

Doug Jones

Woo… knock him out, John!

A Quick Digital Color

I have a little free time once again and this is a quick digital color sketch I did tonight.

The Comments

Jason Bourne

Swizanki! I like the highlights.

Don Jones

Looks like the Chiefs have hung it up for the season.

Dennis Jones

…I wonder what long suffering Chiefs fans would rather have… an exciting, high scoring Dick Vermeil style offense that breaks your heart year after year… or a low scoring, boring Herm Edwards style offense that breaks your heart year after year…

Jason Bourne

And Miami with no wins…

Don Jones

I had the opportunity to purchase end zone tickets for yesterday’s Chargers game. I concluded, why buy tickets to sit in the frigid stadium and watch the Chiefs crash and burn when I could do the same… laying on my couch, sipping Swiss Miss and snoozing as I so desired? Huh?

Doug Jones

I’m with the Donz. When they install recliners at the stadium… I’ll buy a ticket…

Dennis Jones

…I suspect it will be pretty easy to score Chiefs tickets the rest of this season…

Don Jones

I talked to Vendor David this morning who attended the game yesterday. His wife purchased tickets for his birthday. He did not say ONE THING about the game except how stinkin’ cold he was.

Dennis Jones

…high praise for the Chiefs stellar performance…

Back From Oklahoma

September 9, 2008

I just got back from Oklahoma. My youngest son’s appendix burst and he was in dire straights there for a while, but he’s all better now. Since I’ve never had any sort of “real” job, I was able to stay and help nurse him back to health.

Because I’ve been out of the studio for a couple of weeks, I have no experimental art to show here, so I’m going to post this piece of art I did recently and hope I don’t get in trouble with the art director I did it for. (I don’t think he reads this blog anyway).

It’s good to have the NFL season going again. If you’re a football fan you no doubt heard or saw that Tom Brady is out for the season. Bernard Pollard, (the Kansas City Chief who hit Brady’s knee), is from FORT WAYNE, INDIANA. Another Hoosier hits the big time.

The Comments

Doug Jones

hey, glad you made it back home OK. So did the Hoosier get a bonus for taking out Brady? Interesting the way you grayed down the outer elements on this illo.

Don Jones

Hey, the Chiefs at least made the Pats sweat it out until the final seconds. Looks like Brody is out for a while as well… bring on the Hurad/Bowe connection.

Don Jones

On a side note, I’m scratching two items off my bucket list… 1. Participate in a Jury Pool. 2. Serve on a jury.

Jason Bourne

Glad all is well.  Go Cowboys and Colts!

Dennis Jones

…I thought for sure the art director on this piece would complain bitterly about me posting it before it was published, but I guess not…

Dennis Jones

…Douger, wanna know how I grayed down the outside of this?? By using the COLORIZE technique I lernt about on your web page…

Bernard

Welcome back…hope the boy is back to 100% soon too. With the NFL’s easiest schedule ( I looked it up ) the Pats will still cruize into the playoffs…however, if the Steelers ( the NFL’s toughest schedule ) can find a way to build a brick wall around Ben I would love to see them knock off the Pats! After, we beat the colts of course…sorry.

Dennis Jones

…here’s a little something that seems to be floating around the Kansas City area… seems Steelers old coach Bill Cower has been flying in and outa that place quite a lot lately… some people say this might be the last year for GM Carl Peterson and Coach Herm Edwards… Cower coached with Marty Schottenheimer in Kansas City way back when… he might be headed back there… just tossing that into the rumor mill, and after all, isn’t that what the internet is for anyway? …wild speculation and unverified hearsay…

Don Jones

I saw Bill C. at the local Price Cutter and asked if he was headed back to K.C. He replied, “Which aisle are the chips on?”

Jason Bourne

I was thinking what if the Jets end up playing against Green Bay in the Super Bowl.  That would be so ironic.

Doug Jones

I need some Geritol… I have ironic poor blood…

Bernard

…whoa! Wouldn’t Bill in KC be a scoop! You just know he has to come back…they can never retire! Ali said he wouldn’t drag it on…but he did. They just can’t leave. Of course Jim Brown did. Great rumor mill stuff form the Jones Mill. Oh, I almost forgot to fulfill my commentor’s pledge of oath…Great Artwork Denn!

Doug Jones

Wow… that must be one of those ETERNAL flames Don has on his porch…. it’s STIIL going, and going, and going….

Don Jones

I apologize for that photo… I’ve been sitting in a Jury Box for the past few days and have not been able to switch it out… I forgot the URL to the Brother Jones Master Controls.

Doug Jones

hang ‘em high…

Dennis Jones

…I didn’t know you were on the O.J. Simpson jury… why am I always the last to know these things?

Roballoo!

Interesting…the parents seem to have no legs! Also, is it just me or are your limbs getting spindly-er and spindly-er over the years? The grayed down outer bits really serve to highlight the baby and then your eye is drawn over to the parent’s expressions. Nice visual trick.
