Charlie looks like he found a bottle of hair gel on the island! Very cool picture.

Nice to see some new art again. Ahhhh…

Aaron

Dennis, I believe I have a Christian childrens book, illustrated by you. I think it tells the story of Jonah and the Whale, if I remember correctly. Anyways, I’m pumped I’ve been able to find your blog and see more of your stuff. I’ve been attached to your style of drawing for quite some time, and I especially like your drawings of sports figures. Is there a more underrated center than Jeff Saturday? Favre’s head jammed into the back of his helmet? Brilliant. – Aaron (P.S. Go Redskins!)

Dennis Jones

…wasn’t Jeff Saturday a walk on? …I think he has some sort of interesting story like that… I listen to a radio station in Indianapolis and have heard him talking to the afternoon team… he sounds like a pretty nice guy…

Doug Jones

Hey Aaron… I just took a look at your blog… fun stuff! The Cars windshield screen is a brilliant idea!

Dennis Jones

…yep, nice work Aaron… I alway forget to go look at visitors websites until my brothers remind me that I can do that…

Doug Jones

did you take your vitamins today, Den?

Aaron

Fellas, I appreciate the comments. I was thinking of ideas of ways in which I could fashion a Cars windshield shade out of an existing one. I have a friend that works up at Pixar and he says the product is not in the works, and he doesn’t know why. It makes perfect sense…. Silly question: Did you fellas go to art school? Or have you been just drawing and developing your styles your whole lives? Thanks again for the comments, – Aaron

Doug Jones

Art school… what’s that?

Don Jones

Aaron, instead of art school the three of us attended Reform School. Upon graduation we joined the artistic work force and have been laboring at the grindstone ever since. We no longer have noses. But you may want the other brother’s version of our rich family art heritage.

Dennis Jones

…hey… dont sell Cecil’s House For Wayward Young People short now, Don…

Aaron

You guys are too much. So no art school? Just turned a hobby / passion into a career? Side question: Do you play fantasy football?

Doug Jones

you might check out our bios for more background info… if you can figure it out. I know in my case, this is the only thing I am capable of doing. The temp is over 100 degrees today so roofing is definitely out as a career. fantasy football? fantasy football? Slowly I turned… step by step… inch by inch…

Don Jones

Aaron… if you get us going on fantasy football… our comments are sure to OVERLOAD. YES!! we play fantasy football. We created it. The much aligned AWFFL Another Worthless Fantasy Football League.

Dennis Jones

…we were playing fantasy football with fax machines years before Al Gore single handedly invented the internet…

Doug Jones

Right after he put the finishing touches to the internet, Big Al started to work creating Global Warming… did a great job judging by today’s temperature…

Dennis Jones

…that reminds me, Doug… did you ever start reading “State Of Fear”?

Doug Jones

good timing, Den. Yesterday was the used book sale at the local library. I walked out with a practically new hardback copy of that book for 4 bucks and a Beatles Abbey Road album for 50 cents. This is a fund raiser for the library. Folks donate old stuff and they have a sale 4 times a year. You never know what you will find there. I saw a girl pull a Sgt Peppers album out of a box so I looked and found the Abbey Road album.

Dennis Jones

…ahhh you just cant beat the high-end audio experience of listening to music on a thirty year old piece of hi-quality vinyl …todays crummy digital music just has not got the same character without the miscellaneous pops and scratches inserted randomly into the songs like a record album has.

…were Sgt. Peppers lonely hearts club (hic) hearts club (hic) hearts clubSSscckKREAaachhh band

Doug Jones

I was wondering what an Abbey Road album would go for on eBay. If I got a buck for it… I’d double my money!

Doug Jones

why do I have the feeling that IGOTNOTHIN’ Monday is going to become IGOTNOTHIN’ August? 🙂

Dennis Jones

…IGOTNOTHIN” AUGUST…. that’s a GREAT idea!

Wacom Tablet Running Again

February 27, 2007

JeffSaturday3

…our hero, Jeff Saturday…

I finally got around to reinstalling the drivers for my Wacom Tablet after my system switch, so it’s back up and working again. Last night to make sure it was running right, I piddling around with this old sketch of Jeff Saturday. Did you hear Indianapolis won the SuperBowl this year? Have I mentioned I live in Indiana and am a Colts fan? I have? Oh. Sorry…

The Comments

Don Jones

Jeff Saturday is the real deal. I recently read a magazine article about his faith in Christ along with other born-again Colts. Amen.

Doug Jones

Indianapolis Coats? Is that what you wear up there in the winter? Say… what kind of computer maitenance are we supposed to be doing? Did the tech guy tell you?

Dennis Jones

…I believe offensive juggernaut center/runningback Jeff Saturday scored the go-ahead touchdown in the AFC Championship game this year… the only game of the season I DIDN’T get to see… aARrrrrgh…

Dennis Jones

…yes Doug, I have several Indianapolis Winter Coats in my closet downstairs… they come in handy as I shovel snow… again… and again… and again…

…computer maintenance… I’m not really too sure what we are supposed to be doing… all I know about a computer is that when I punch the button on the front a little blue light comes on and it starts working…

I think the tech guy maybe de-fragged the hard drive and re-dejuggulated the fraxamazoid… something like that…

Don Jones

I bet he had to pull out the defibulators as well…

Dennis Jones

…I do seem to remember him slapping a couple of paddles onto the sides of my computer and yelling clear… but I thought he was just trying to jump start it…

Doug Jones

I hope he didn’t damage the flux capacitor when he did that…

Dennis Jones

…yes, it was a risky move, but the only other thing that could generate that much power is a bolt of lightning and it’s impossible to determine when and where they will strike…

Doug Jones

That is very true… unless you have the BrotherJones lightning predictor. Available for $9.95….

Dennis Jones

…I am offering (for a limited time only) an “earth-friendly” Brother Jones Lightning Predictor made exclusively out of gourds… it also predicts whether you are global warming or not…

Doug Jones

Didn’t Al Gore have one of those that didn’t work? He got hit with 50 jigawatts of lightning and never was the same…. … except he did put on a few pounds…

Dennis Jones

…this is true, Doug… the “earth friendly” Brother Jones Lightning Predictor doesn’t actually work… but that’s not important… it’s the good intentions that count… and I certainly intended for it to work…

Roballoo

Nice use of shadows inside the helmet and I like the color combos. Yer Wacoming skills are getting better.

Doug Hughes

Hi Dennis…….a new fan from South Africa..maybe the same age!! My question…what is the average size of your artwork you work on?

Dennis Jones

…thanks RobalLOO…

…Doug from South Africa… the size of most of the professional work I do runs around 8×10 to 12×18 depending on what the job calls for… (right now I’m doing posters that run 18×24 in size)… most of the Wacom things that I do are just for fun and all come out of my 8×11 sketchbook…

I seem to be falling into an “only draw the Colts” rut… but I don’t have a problem with that since it has been scientifically proven that they are the best team in the league without question… ever. I still can’t believe Peyton won a Super Bowl last year and his little brother Eli won it the next… what a story.

The Comments

Don Jones

best team ever … except for the ‘69 Chiefs. This guy has some major ‘ceps. woah.

Dennis Jones

…no, I’m sorry Don… a team of renowned football scientists who are much, much smarter than us have reached a consensus on this subject and determined the Colts to be the best team ever… who are we to question their conclusions on this subject? …we must simply accept what they say and act on it as fact…

Don Jones

That is merely “the Man” trying to keep us in our place. We must rise up and with one voice and declare that all Hoosiers and Hicks are football lovers too!

Dennis Jones

…Don… how dare you call into question the consensus opinion of football scientists… every single one in the whole world agrees that the Colts are the best team ever, so it must be true… I believe I even saw something about this on the NFL Channel… if it’s on TV it has to be true…

jeff

on the other hand, the Dallas Plowboys, in double blind testing were the only team to choke on a sack of mini marshmallows..

Dennis Jones

…hmm …well, ok Jeff, I guess you cannot argue with the scientificness of the double blind test…

Doug Jones

Colts?… Colts?… that sounds like it should be a team from Kentucky- horse country. The name SHOULD be the Indy Hoosiers. Then you could go to games and yell… “Hoosier Daddy?”

Jason Bourne

I love to draw football players. Can’t wait for the new season!

Jon Slone

The colts are the greatest! The way football should be played. Best coach! Best wide receivers! And lets not forget……the coolest nnames! Peyton, marvin, Dallas and Fern Blanston! Nobody wraps a bum toe or fills a cup like Fern!

Dennis Jones

Don Jones

If Al says it… then it is so. Just remember, he invented the internets.

Dennis Jones

…now yer thinkin’ right…
