Wacom Tablet Running Again

…our hero, Jeff Saturday…

I finally got around to reinstalling the drivers for my Wacom Tablet after my system switch, so it’s back up and working again. Last night to make sure it was running right, I piddling around with this old sketch of Jeff Saturday. Did you hear Indianapolis won the SuperBowl this year? Have I mentioned I live in Indiana and am a Colts fan? I have? Oh. Sorry…

The Comments

Don Jones

Jeff Saturday is the real deal. I recently read a magazine article about his faith in Christ along with other born-again Colts. Amen.

Doug Jones

Indianapolis Coats? Is that what you wear up there in the winter? Say… what kind of computer maitenance are we supposed to be doing? Did the tech guy tell you?

Dennis Jones

…I believe offensive juggernaut center/runningback Jeff Saturday scored the go-ahead touchdown in the AFC Championship game this year… the only game of the season I DIDN’T get to see… aARrrrrgh…

Dennis Jones

…yes Doug, I have several Indianapolis Winter Coats in my closet downstairs… they come in handy as I shovel snow… again… and again… and again…

…computer maintenance… I’m not really too sure what we are supposed to be doing… all I know about a computer is that when I punch the button on the front a little blue light comes on and it starts working…

I think the tech guy maybe de-fragged the hard drive and re-dejuggulated the fraxamazoid… something like that…

Don Jones

I bet he had to pull out the defibulators as well…

Dennis Jones

…I do seem to remember him slapping a couple of paddles onto the sides of my computer and yelling clear… but I thought he was just trying to jump start it…

Doug Jones

I hope he didn’t damage the flux capacitor when he did that…

Dennis Jones

…yes, it was a risky move, but the only other thing that could generate that much power is a bolt of lightning and it’s impossible to determine when and where they will strike…

Doug Jones

That is very true… unless you have the BrotherJones lightning predictor. Available for $9.95….

Dennis Jones

…I am offering (for a limited time only) an “earth-friendly” Brother Jones Lightning Predictor made exclusively out of gourds… it also predicts whether you are global warming or not…

Doug Jones

Didn’t Al Gore have one of those that didn’t work? He got hit with 50 jigawatts of lightning and never was the same…. … except he did put on a few pounds…

Dennis Jones

…this is true, Doug… the “earth friendly” Brother Jones Lightning Predictor doesn’t actually work… but that’s not important… it’s the good intentions that count… and I certainly intended for it to work…

Roballoo

Nice use of shadows inside the helmet and I like the color combos. Yer Wacoming skills are getting better.

Doug Hughes

Hi Dennis…….a new fan from South Africa..maybe the same age!! My question…what is the average size of your artwork you work on?

Dennis Jones

…thanks RobalLOO…

…Doug from South Africa… the size of most of the professional work I do runs around 8×10 to 12×18 depending on what the job calls for… (right now I’m doing posters that run 18×24 in size)… most of the Wacom things that I do are just for fun and all come out of my 8×11 sketchbook…

Trophy Rolls Into Town

March 19, 2007

ColtsVan

…the Indianapolis ColtMobile…

ColtsLine

…Hoosiers standing in line…

ColtsCaptains

…ready to rumble…

As their way of saying, “thank you Dennis for helping us win the Super Bowl this year”, the Colts brought the Lombardi Trophy to Huntington last Saturday. Hoosiers lined up for miles to get their picture taken next to the trophy. Since it looks pretty much exactly the same live as it looks on tv, I opted out of standing in line, jumped into the back of the gym, snapped a long distance shot and headed on home… before anyone could catch me and tell me I couldn’t do that. Yes, I suppose I could have made a grand entrance, gone to the head of the line and signed autographs, but I’m just not that kind of guy.

The Comments

Doug Jones

No wonder the Colts won. They have number 58, SocMo Jones playing for them. He is so BUFF! Unfortunately the Titans have Pacman Jones on their team. A total thug… giving us Joneses a bad name. Wanna trade?

Don Jones

I think I read that SocMo was the Colts franchise player this past year. Dennis Jones No. 4 on the other hand was traded… to the Raiders for a Chick-Filet $1 off coupon.

Doug Jones

… that made me laugh out loud… stop it, just stop it…

Don Jones

I bet Dennis went to the gym thinking they were passing out “Trophy Rolls” and coffee. Picked that up from the subliminal message in the blog headline…

Dennis Jones

…mmmm …trophy rolls…

Doug Jones

dang.. made me laugh again. twice in one day. new record.

Doug Jones

Hey… I was totally bummed out when Rob and Amber were eliminated from the Amazing Race last week. In fact, I am STILL bummed about it. Anyone else feel this way?

Don Jones

I missed last week and was surprised they had gone down. From the recap it looked like Rob sort of blew a gasket with that sign deal.

Doug Jones

Rob misspelled a word on the sign… and spelling counted. He never caught it. A very good lesson here for boys and girs… study those spelling words.

Don Jones

Spelling and grammer are so importunt.

Dennis Jones

…man… I buckle down, work non-stop, don’t check the web site for a while and the next thing I know I’m running a fan blog for the Amazing Race… which is fine with me… it was disappointing to see Rob and Amber mixed up in that nuclear bomb drone plane incident and have to be eliminated by Jack Bauer last week, but hey, that kind of thing will happen sometimes…
