Half-a-Kazillion Caloric in-take… it ain’t worth eating if it’s not bad for you. Pass the butter and salt.

Dennis Jones

mmmm… butter… salt…

Don Jones

Did you know the definition of JONES is an addiction. It’s also the slang name for heroin. I’m thinking our joneseseseses are butter, salt and caffeine. There’s a good t-shirt slogan in here somewhere

Not sure what you can read into this classic Jones Brother photo except Dennis thinks he is an Avenger or something

Dennis Jones

I cant help it if I have always been a trend setter… I still think the head only thru the top of a hooded sweatshirt is a great look and will no doubt catch on at some point in time…

Doug Jones

I recognize Don’s look… it’s the same one he had a the end of that big project he just completed.

Doug Jones

Dennis… I believe this was the time when you and Gollum were on the way to Mordor to destroy the ring of power.

Dennis Jones

yes… thats me Denno with my little buddy Don Wisegangee and Doug the Grey…

Dennis Jones

…of course, the ring of power in question here was a Krispie Kreme donut… which, as you can see, Don Wisegangee has just stuffed in his mouth while my back was turned…

Doug Jones

Gollum never had a chance with Don around. This is what I was talking about… Don has that “glazed” look on his face… now we know where it came from.

Don Jones

Wide-eyed and bushy tailed. As I recall, not too many Krispy Kremes around Mordor.

Dennis Jones

not after you rolled into town…

Goat For A Face Guy

GoatForaFaceGuySK

…from the sketchbook thru the copy machine…

GoatForaFaceGuy

…Goat For A Face Guy…

I found some time this weekend to play, so I got a picture out of my sketchbook and got ready to paint. Not wanting to waste any of the limited time I had re-pencilling the sketch onto watercolor paper, I decided to use my copy machine to transfer the sketch.

The machine made noises it had never made before as it strained to pull the 140 pound piece of watercolor paper thru itself… but I say, “if it doesn’t kill ya, it will make you stronger” …so I believe my copy machine is a better copy machine because of this experience.

It seems copier ink is dry and powdery and it did not really fuse to the paper surface very well. As I painted it came off and mixed into the color creating… well… mud. Fortunately, I paint with gouache and the power of gouache came thru in the clutch once again. I just increased the amount of paint I was using and opaquely painted right over the top of the mud.

The Comments

Doug Jones

Cool! Lord of the Rings character with rock star hair… is this guy also an accountant?

Dennis Jones

…a finely groomed mane is quite important to Goat For Face Guys…

Dennis Jones

…hey Doug… Don seems to be absent today… I also heard there is a possible hurricane headed for the coast… these two things lead me to believe Don and family have headed toward the coast… they do seem to enjoy riding a storm out every other year or so… I don’t recall him punching out on the official Brother Jones Time Clock, though… looks like there’s a top secret reprimand in order here…

Doug Jones

If that be the case (which I’m thinking it is) one of us needs to go over and put up a new picture on his page… the potentate pic is really wearing on me…. whadaya think?

roballoo

Yesh I’d say he looks like an accountant. It’s the leather gloves that does it.

Doug Jones

I see a calculator in his back pocket…

Dennis Jones

…well… it’s obviously the middle of tax season for him…

Don jones

Nothing he likes better than a “gang audit.”

Dennis Jones

…I worked all weekend tearing down my studio and then putting it all back together… I think I have finally come up with a computer work space that I like…

Doug Jones

Toss that computer out the window like you threatened to… you’ll have lots more space!

Roballoo

Hey, it’s probably better than my G3. I’ll take it. Will we see before and after pictures of the ol’ studio?

Don Jones

Have you got yourself a optional standing/sitting work station? The more I think of that… the more I like it.

Eomer

Eomer

…riding his trusty Indianapolis Colt…

In a little known sub-story from the Lord Of The Rings Trilogy, Eomer of Rohan gallops into battle on his trusty Indianapolis Colt to combat the dreaded Bearmen of Chicagohan.

The Comments

Doug Jones

Where is Elmer’s plaid hat?

Don Jones

Den, I’m thinking this is your Super Bowl prediction. Colts over Bears in a RUNAWAY!!! Pass the Guachamoldie!!

Mark Behm

Hah ha! Great armor.

Dennis Jones

…as it is with all good tales, our hero’s fate was in question throughout most of the story… but with the help of his trustworthy Indianapolis Colt, Rohan galloped on to victory …29 to 17…

Don Jones

Dennis, you need to pack up and move it back to MO and fast. The Chiefs are down but not completely OUT. Your Super Bo-Mo-Jo is just what Coach Herm is needing!

Doug Jones

Yeah… move outta that frozen waste land… OR.. move to Wisconsin and give Farve a little help next year

Dennis Jones

…I bought a brand new bag of hi-priced “On The Border” chips and “On The Border” salsa to munch on during the Super Bowl, got engaged in the drama that was unfolding before me on the tv set and forgot to eat them… rats… the game could have been SO much better if I had just remembered them…

Doug Jones

Those chips and salsa are HORRID! (a little Simon Cowell lingo, there) Why don’t you FedEx them to me and I will dispose of them for you.

Dennis Jones

…I think I will just hang onto them so I will have chips n salsa ready next year as I am watching the Colts win the Super Bowl again…

Doug Jones

that ship has sailed… next year it’ll be Vince Young getting a free Escalade…

Doug Jones

I was just wondering… does this guy strap on a couple of diapers so he doesn’t have to make stops on his journey?

Dennis Jones

…I don’t know about him, but I’m trying it on my next journey to Mtn. Grove… if it’s good enough for Nasa astronauts, it’s good enough for me…

Doug Jones

I bet this makes the postal workers happy. Now instead of going “postal” you can say someone is going “Astro”

Dennis Jones

…or as Astro from the Jetson’s would say… Rastro!

Don Jones

I can’t seem to be able to comment on the recent Sock Monkey Wood Retrieval page. Must be from all that snow you received up there around the Lakes.

Frodo Piggins

29PorkOfTheRings

All alone for the first time, Frodo Piggins wondered if the magic ring he carried in his pocket could actually save his bacon. His traveling buddy, Hamwise Gamgee, had deserted him for an all you can eat buffet in Rivendell.

The Comments

Doug Jones

I thought that was old Ham Gamgee I saw at the Rivendell buffet. He was piling it on… but I out did him!

Jason Bourne

Fantastic idea… I hope there is not a Big Bad Wolf in the story, or our friend will have to find a brick house.

Dennis Jones

…I probably should have called him Spamwise Gamgee…

Doug Jones

tomato… toMAHto…

Doug Jones

hey… it’s bash the visitors day over on Don’s page…

Dennis Jones

…a close-up of Frodo’s magic ring…

Roballoo

What size was the original ‘cuz that lettering looks reeel small to me. Nice piece. This one and the previous harken back to that samurai bear you did.

Don Jones

Maybe my bashing is sleep related … Last night I slept like a baby… with cholic.

Doug Jones

now that is one extreeme close up! I’m glad he asks himself What Would Jonesy Do… Now THAT’S the question.

Dennis Jones

…I’ve always been kinda partial to the WWDJ one…
What Would Dennis Do? …it works for all the Brothers Jones…

Disgruntled Dwarf

Dwarf1

One of the channels was showing the Lord Of The Rings trilogy again on TV. I saw bits and pieces of it during the weekend and later scribbled out this guy… he’s not a character from the story, I just attribute his creation to the story… or maybe to the pizza I had on Saturday night… hard to know which…

The Comments

Don Jones

I totally relate with this dwarf.

Dan Lietha

Are those goggles on his head or did he have his horns trimmed? 🙂

Doug Jones

Judging from those ears, I think there is some Vulcan in his ancestry…

Roballoo!

Digital? I’m guessing so, looking at the way you handled the color in his sleeve. But maybe I’m wrong.

Dennis Jones

…yes, yes and yes… those ARE goggles on his head… apparently big ole coke bottle magnifying lens goggles… he’s part vulcan, and it was rendered digitally…

Doug Jones

Hey… I was just wondering… what do ya think BEN has been doing on the island for 3 years? Hmmmm….

Dennis Jones

…I was wondering where young Ben would be in this whole scenario since regular Ben is over on the other side of the island right now with Locke… by the way, do you know who plays Ben’s dad in LOST? …the same guy that played Uncle Ricco in Napoleon Dynamite! …I hope he makes another appearance on the show, I get a kick out of him…

Doug Jones

well now… THAT ‘splains the time travel thing doesn’t it?

Prolifik Films

Prolifik

When Karen and I were first married, we bought a house deep in the Missouri Ozark woods and I started my freelance career from there. Most freelance artists move closer to big cities where work is flowing. Not me! Using my superior thinkin’ skills, I decided to launch my freelance career from the very middle of Nowhere U.S.A.

Way back then nobody… NOBODY worked at home. If you worked at home you obviously didn’t have a job. These days it’s commonplace to work at home, and work for yourself to boot.

As they say, the acorn doesn’t fall far from the oak tree. My oldest son Nick just launched Prolifik Films, and is now working at home as a freelancer. One of the side projects that he and I are working on is a motion graphic comic book. I had no idea there was any such thing as a motion graphic comic book two months ago and now I’m in the middle of developing one withProlifik Films.

Their new web site is up, so if you’re curious about his work, run on over and take a look. Prolifik Films

The Comments

Nik

That is cool,a motion comic book,I can’t wait to see that. So much to learn.

Don Jones

i am an official Prolifik Films Fan on FaceBook. Say that real fast, three times…

Dennis Jones

…using my superior thinkin’ skills, I just shoveled the snow off my driveway… wearing clogs… and no socks…

Jeff

I am the official medical director at BRO-JO what color are your toes Dennis? How many fingers am I holding up?

Dennis Jones

…how many fingers… hard to tell… of course, it would probably help if I took off my Avatar 3-d glasses…

Dennis Jones

…’cause it looks like you’re holding up four hands and about fifteen and a half fingers…

Jeff

You got it.. I guess your o.k.

Don Jones

Avatar? I just watched the first Lord of the Rings flick last night…

Dennis Jones

…Lord Of The Rings? …if you started that movie last night I’m guessing you’re probably still watching and almost to the end of it…

Doug Jones

I need to watch LOTR again. LOTR is what all of us cool peeps call it. I watched original Get Smart episodes from season 1 last night. They are even better that I remember! Wonder who put that in the Dube bridge gift mix?

Don Jones

Today is BIRTHDAY EVE for Dougie boy… the anticipation is killing me… sort of.

Dennis Jones

…LOTR was on TV last night and I spontaneously LOL… fwi…

Dennis Jones

…I meant fyi …I’m not sure what fwi means…

Dennis Jones

…oh, yes I do… Fort Wayne International Airport… I knew that sounded familiar…

Don Jones

That’s FYB funny. Fill Your Britches.

Dennis Jones

…TMI, Don, TMI…

Nik

Fort Wyane International Airport! LOL! Greatness!

roballoo!

Can’t wait to see this comic book thingy you’ve got cooked up your sleeve!
