I suppose it’s time to post something new, but I have nothing new to say… so I’m going to post an email I just received and hope the emailer doesn’t get mad at me…

(emailer) How in the world do you come up with all these characters and things? And advise for a want-to-be artist… finding little motivation lately…

(me) …after a while I sometimes just run out of ideas to draw… but I still want to draw, so I will find a book or magazine and start drawing what I see in them… I found a book on Star Wars a few months ago and have been doing a lot of those characters lately… at my moms house I found a magazine article on colonial Williamsburg and you will probably see historical characters popping up next from me… we can only get better at art by continual practice and experimentation, so find some subjects that interest you and keep pounding away at those drawing skills… Thanks for the email…

Excellent question. I get drawing block as well and try to think up something different. You just keep on keep’n on.

Dan Lietha

I’ve been waiting on some Indiana Jones humor, being that YOU are THE Indiana Jones, of the Jones Brothers.

Dennis Jones

…INDIANA JONES AND THE PENCIL OF DOOM…

…I haven’t seen the new movie yet, but Doug says it’s pretty good…

Don Jones

What is this? The Doug Jones Vanilla Comment Show?

Dennis Jones

…Doug and I are working on getting one million comments posted on this page we don’t really care whether there are actual words on the comments or not, we just want the big numbers… if you would have attended the last Brother Jones board meeting you would have been up to speed on this issue…

Bernard

Dennis, I’ve been waiting and hoping that my favorite team wins this years Stanley cup just to see your tribute sketch…but I’m I’m afraid we’re down 2 games to none right now and haven’t even scored a goal yet!

Cindy

Uhhh what was the original question? And no, I’m not mad. Thanks for your quick response. You’re awesome! Ps 115:1

Dennis Jones

…thanks for giving me something to post, Cindy!

…Bernard, I think I’m slowly becoming a closet Penguins fan… Crosby, Malkin, and that goalie they drafted as a franchise player seem to all be working out pretty well… that’s a young team… and good… they should be competing for the cup for the next several years!

Doug Jones

did a little spring cleaning on your page today… swept all those pointless little comments under the rug… more room for hockey talk now….

Dennis Jones

…ah MAN… now I’m down to just 9 comments… well, now 10…

Don Jones

3 comments forward…. 4 comments back. That’s negativity as I see it.

Jason Bourne

This is #12. Whew. Can we still make it to a million…?

Dennis Jones

…I was really enjoying watching Doug try to post a picture here yesterday and was kinda hoping to be able to archive his efforts forever on this page… oh, well…

Doug Jones

ha haaaaaaa…. tough luck, weaselboy…

Dennis Jones

…I still don’t know what the picture was you tried to post…

Cindy

Is this number 16?

Flying, uhm… Bird Guy…

I don’t have any idea what this picture is all about. I drew it on the plane ride back from Baton Rogue. I don’t know what kind of creature this is or what he’s flying in, and I don’t particularly like the way the picture turned out… but staying true to the exceptionally high standards we set here at Brother Jones, it’s good enough for me to post today.

The Comments

Doug Jones

look, up in the sky… it’s a bird… it’s a plane… it’s STEAMPUNK BIRD DUDE! I like it!

Bernard

Gee, I liked this piece until I read your own review! You must have had a bad seat on the plane, or worse…no peanuts with your drink? I do know what it is though. It’s a Pittsburgh Penguin getting the H, E, double hockey-sticks out of Detroit and back to the burg!

Dennis Jones

…yes, yes, I’m seeing it now… I had a revelation on the plane ride home that the Pittsburgh Penguins would fly home from Detroit down two games only to rise like a phoenix and smite the mighty Redwings in game three… yeh, that must have been what I was thinking… it’s all so clear to me now…

Don Jones

I caught some of that NHL Stanley Cup action last night. I must agree that this is definitely a Penguin… in leather. Steampunkin’…

Bernard

Ouch! Sarcasm doesn’t feel as good on the receiving end…all kidding aside I hope you can see that all I’m trying to do here is bug the greatest artist of all time into doing a Pittsburgh Penguin sketch! smile. you being a hockey player/fan and all. more smiling. Sincerely, Justin Brownozer

Jason Bourne

Swanky by far. I love this, its like walking through the jungle, you never know what you will see.

Don Jones

pork.

Dennis Jones

Bernard

Yikes! I guess I should be careful of what I ask for…judging by this little guy’s expression I sure hope this is not a prophetic illustration. Thanks Dennis! I’m typeless.

Doug Jones

puke… er… poke…

Doug Jones

we lost Locke on Lost?

Don

Locke had way too much color in his face to be dead. I say he was napping.

Dennis Jones

…yes, I agree… that was a flash back to a flash forward of Locke napping in real time right before he flashes back to the flash forward future… quite simple if you think about it…

Dennis Jones

…Bernard, I’ll get a hockey player done for ya, but this month is going to be tough, so it might be later on in the summer…

Doug Jones

Den… just flash yourself forward and do the hockey player… doesn’t time travel simplify things?

Dennis Jones

…the electo-magnetic field in the bunker under my house is on the fritz again so the time travel thing just isn’t working for me right now…

Doug Jones

I just put on my heavy coat and went down a deep tunnel to a large frozen wheel that I turned. Then my house disappeared. I hate when that happens…

Dennis Jones

…did you hear whispering as you were turning the big wheel… that was me time traveling by… I said hey…

Doug Jones

That was you? I think you dropped a coconut as you went by…

Bernard

…Lol! you guys are so funny I can’t remember if I’m here for the art or the jokes! And it’s all FREE! Except that penguin art. Send me a bill with an autographed ( hologram verified ) and I’ll be happy to pay it. er…do you barter?

Don Jones

I believe Jin turned into shark chum.

Dennis Jones

…I don’t remember losing a coconut, but I am missing a Mounds bar… is that what you’re talking about?

Doug Jones

If you’re missing a Mounds bar, I’d check Hurley’s pockets….

Dennis Jones

…that’s a good idea… nothing goes better with a 15 year old sack of crackers than a Mounds bar…

brett

Thats great!I like him.How did you put that penguin online on your comments? That would be awesome.

Dennis Jones

Brett, thats html code stuff… the code is…

…but you have to have your picture published on the internet somewhere first and be able to snag it’s info in order to insert it into the code…

Dennis Jones

…oops …I wrote the code for you and it published a nothing… oh, well…
