Sir Bodsworth Rugglesby

January 8, 2007


…who else could it be but good ole Rugglesby…


…itching to trek about the latitudes…

I really like concept art. I decided to do a little of it myself this weekend and this is what I came up with. I’m not really sure if there is any sort of concept going on in my piece of concept art… unless you can call baggy striped pants a concept.

The Comments

Doug Jones

I think the concept here is Wal*Mart greeter gone BAD! “Hey… you wanna cart? Take it! TAKE THE CART NOW OR I’LL BLAST YOU!”… “thank you, and have a nice day”…….


What a fun piece. With the striped pants I’d say he’s a golfer during the apocalypse. I imagine Golf would be a much more dangerous sport then.

Mark Behm

He’s great. Love his costume and the “tooth gate” behind him.

Don Jones

This would make a nice addition to ImageKind print place. I have to agree with Roballoo… those are golfin’ britches if I’ve ever seen ‘um.

Doug Jones

I hope this guy has another pair of those pants in his pack… in case he gets a hole in one…

Dennis Jones

…this page actually has secret, backward masked messages about the Beatles hidden on it. kinda…

Cedric Hohnstadt

Terrific illustration! Who’d have ever thought someone could look so intimidating wearing striped pajama pants.


I once shot a carnivorous prehistoric beast in my stripey combat pajamas. How it got in my stripey combat pajamas I’ll never know.

Craig Schutt

This is a comic book/graphic novel just waiting to happen…


I must concur. At least you’d sell a couple of copies.


Awesome! Wacom, Painted or both?


its looks like ‘Zerit’, a character designed by Massimiliano Frezzato




i googled the name. is this a song?



Dennis Jones

…if you saw this seasons opening episode of 24 (when Jack stepped off the airplane from his little holiday stay in China)… that’s pretty much what I looked like when I disembarked the plane from europe last night… minus the handcuffs of course… but including the long beard and shellshocked look…

Deke & Luis: I was listening to an old Klaatu record one night and was inspired by a song on it called Sir Bodsworth Rugglesby III, I did this picture as I listened to the album…

Jeff: Where have you been? Good to hear something out of you again! Are you involved in hockey at all this year? Last summer the team I played on won the league championship! I AM A WEINER! I mean WINNER! WhooHOO!

JoBi: I would have to agree with you JoBi, this does look like Zerit… I guess there really is nothing new under the sun…

Bernard: Painted… I still love to paint…

Craig & RobalLOO: You write it, I’ll draw it…

Brian: Always good to hear someone reporting in from the Stripey Combat Pajama Brigade… but you guys just have to do a better job guarding your uniforms…

Cedric: Try wearing striped pajama pants the next time you go out in public… people will get out of your way quick… they are indeed very intimidating…

Mark: Thanks… I’ve not had a lot of time yet to piddle around with the digital tablet, but its all been in Photoshop… I am starting to explore Painter now, (which is a whole different animal)… if I ever come up with anything decent I will post it up…

Painting Tip 13 C

May 7, 2007


…the effective use of ladders…


…RobalLOO thinks this is me but he is wrong… I look nothing like this guy… well, maybe the eyes… but that’s all…

Here’s a helpful tip for your next painting excursion. Use the ladder more effectively. When painting hard to reach areas, use ladders as stilts to move around the room. This is a huge time saver and rarely ends up in an emergency trip to the hospital. With all the extra time you save, you can now participate in more enjoyable pursuits… like bobbing for french fries.

The Comments


A logical progression of the Spinal Fusion Scaffold System. New for 2007, The Total Hip Replacement Stilts go where no other ladder should. Arlington Orthopedic group is looking to sponsor this project..

Dennis Jones

…I believe I learned how to write up official sponsorship proposals from you, Jeff… perhaps Arlington Orthopedic would also be willing to sponsor some new hockey jerseys and a little rink time for us aging hockey players here in Indiana…


Of course I get an official D.J. hockey jersey? I already have 1.


I could be wrong but is that Bro. Dennis looking askance from the left side of the image?

Dennis Jones

…maybe… the only way to know for certain is if he takes off the hat…


I like the way the “T” can not really be seen on the ladder guys can leaving “PAIN”. Was this intentional?

Dennis Jones

…huh… no, I didn’t intend that, but it does work pretty well… I was reading an interview with the main guy from an old rock band called Klaatu and he was being asked about all the hidden stuff people found in their music and he said it was all news to him… in the arts, sometimes stuff just kinda happens, I guess…

Doug Jones

Painting tip 13-C… isn’t this a page from the “BrotherJones Do It Yourself and wind up in the Hospital” book we put out a couple of years ago?

Dennis Jones

…you caught me Doug… this is in fact a page from our, (now out of print), BROTHER JONES DO IT YOURSELF AND WIND UP IN THE HOSPITAL book we put out a few years ago… I think you can still find a few copies in the dollar store (along with most of our other published works)… perhaps I will post tip 13-D (talking on your cell phone while driving) later on this week…

Don Jones

I am working up a new title as well… Living Life In Chaos- Brother Jones tips on international travel, car and mower repair and budget tips for moving from “in the black” to “in the red”.

Dennis Jones

…Karen and I usually just look at each other, shake our heads and say, “it’s always something”…


I think the two characters look nothing alike.. Notice the shifty brows, high forehead, beady eyes..Then look at the cartoon guy.. ha. ha.

Dennis Jones


…life in northeast Indiana has been tough on my runway model good looks since moving out of Texas, Jeff…

Doug Jones

that runway has lots of potholes in it now…

I just changed modeling jobs..I now work for Biffs Old N Ugly..
