SteampunkedScriptureSteampunkedScripture2

The job request I’m working on right now is for a creative Bible books poster. They said I could do anything I wanted but “no characters”. NO CHARACTERS? Jeepers, the only thing I know how to do is characters, now what? Well, the latest thing I’m interested in is the “steampunk” genre, so this is what I came up with. It was kind of fun painting grunge for a change and I liked the way the scratched letters turned out…

Don Jones

I can visualize you working this up with a pair of goggles on and steam engine gloves. SteamPunk IS Brother Jones!

Doug Jones

cool… it’s not as fun to draw things without eyeballs… but this is looking real guud, Clark!

Dennis Jones

…Jeepers, Doug, thanks for introducing me to the steampunk movement, and Don, I’ve got my fingers crossed hoping I get a snazzy new set of steampunk goggles for my birthday because I’m pretty sure a Cintiq tablet is outa the question…

Dennis Jones

…my crummy old set of steampunk goggles…

Doug Jones

You need some like James Gurney is wearing here…

Don Jones

If we could only find some goggles that had a 150+ prescription in them… my current pair of readin’ glasses have no ear pieces on them. They broke off… now they’re very 1880ish.

Doug Jones

is it time for you to take your eyeballs in to be resurfaced and rotated, Don?

Dennis Jones

…I’m thinkin’ maybe if I can just find a nice pair of goggles I can just duct tape some reading lens onto them… would still be a pretty good look…

Dennis Jones

Don Jones

I nominate you as “SteamPunk Jones Brother of the Month!” Those are beeyouutiful.

Doug Jones

you got the punk look down… now let’s work on the steam…

Dennis Jones

Don Jones

Atomic SteamPunk Xtra-Grande!

Doug Jones

This needs to be the new BrotherJones Logo! AWESOME!

Dennis Jones

Jason Bourne

“Super Nova Steem Punk”. KABLAM!

Doug Jones

so… are Don and I just figments of your steampunked imagination???

Dennis Jones

…Brother Jones has the same story line as the TV show LOST… no one is sure who or what is real and who or what is not… or if it’s all just a figment of someone’s imagination…

Don Jones

I think I’ve been shot… or contracted some strange virus from the island.

Doug Jones

Look out for that swarm of buggy things, Don…

vanessa

I’ve got “your” bible for children in french. And it’s wonderful !!! I hope to see more books of you in France and Belgium !!!

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…

…no, I have not seen the Movie 9 yet, but that didn’t keep me from whipping out one of those little goomers from the movie for my very own…

The Comments

Doug Jones

Terrific! That looks like a fully automatic CheapJoe 50 caliber brush he is wielding.

Jeff

WOW! I’m speachless. this guy is too cool.

Nik

YES! Nothing says “cool” like converse…LOL

Dennis Jones

…there is a new genre out there called “Stitchpunk” which is kinda like steampunk except it focuses heavily on big, rough looking stitching… I have been into stitchpunk for several years and didn’t even know it…

Don Jones

awesomeness… the bulbed back pack, the belt… I need to see this up close… let me get my glasses…
