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.

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.

Indiana Bigfoot

July 15, 2009

…so I was watching MonsterQuest on the History Channel this weekend and apparently, everyone in Indiana has seen a bigfoot except for me… of course, several of those people couldn’t pass their lie detector tests, but I see that more as their rich Hoosier cultural heritage coming to play rather than flat out lying.

Anyway, I was looking through some pictures I shot last winter and ran across this one. That’s right, it’s a bigfoot… in the trees behind my house… doing the cha-cha…

The Comments

Doug Jones

well SOMEthing knocked over my garbage can a few days ago and ate some tasty scraps. Wonder if this thing has a bus ticket to Nashville in his pocket…

Don Jones

This particular bigfoot is a far cry from some sort of scary, backwoods monster. This lovable beast deserves extra table scraps and any leftover Starbucks from the old coffee pot.

Dennis Jones

…yes, well, Indiana bigfoots march to a different drummer…

Jeff

You know his hands are in perfect position for a couple of Marrachas
or however its spelled. The little gourd shaker things.
