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?

A quick sketch for you despondent Penguin fans who are struggling just to make it through the day…

I just told the wife last night how they are gonna have to win if I have any chance at getting a Penguin Hockey Player sketch outta you! I shoulda knew…the Jones Brothers do not go with the flow! It took me all night to quit crying and now…well, I’m just gonna snot up again. er, how much fer and autographed copy?

Jason Bourne

LOL…the fun will never cease.

Don Jones

Bernard, You need to get outside and do a little deep breathing exercises. I like that “snot up again” line… I really thought them penguins were gonna pull it out again in the final seconds.

Bernard

Don, you must have been talking to my wife because she tells me that every day. Of course she also told me to leave you guys alone…fat chance of that now! Dennis Is Great!, Dennis Is Great!, Dennis Is Great!

Dennis Jones

…my buddie Gary Locke said the Pens goalie needed a bigger butt for sitting on the puck more efficiently…

…it reminded me of a goalie we used to play against in Texas that would stuff a pillow down the back of his pants to widen up his blocking mass
