Well, I’ve finally done it… I’ve jumped into the world of film making and I’d like to announce the premier of my first feature length film! …well it’s only 46 seconds long, but I have a pretty short attention span. You can see it here on YouTube.

The Comments

Doug Jones

mega awesomeness dittos…. I liked seeing the progress happen at each stage. Good color on this guy! …and another Swashbuckling belt to hold in the groceries

Don Jones

I am now a charter subscriber to the Dennis Jones YouTube channel. I pass out 5 stars like free money. That music is quite contemplative, reflective… I think I heard it on an elevator.

Dennis Jones

…Doug, one of the Dennis Jones Keys To Good Comedy is to put a big fat belt on everybody…

…Don, the bands Journey, Yes and Boston all found new lead singers by watching guys sing on YouTube, so I decided I better get on YouTube quick, keep my fingers crossed hoping the Doobie Brothers discover me, drop this art gig, and hit the road with them…

Don Jones

hit the road with them… as a roadie! Don’t give up on your Weasel group so fast … there’s still time to gel and write a couple of hits.

W E A S E L – the One Hitless Wonder.

Dennis Jones

…if I could just move closer to Oklahoma City I could strong arm Nick into playing drums, Pete into playing lead guitar, beg you to come play keyboards, I would hold down the bass and WE WOULD hit the road with… WEASELBOYZ!!! THE ONE HITLESS WONDERS!!

Jason Bourne

It’s Little John from Robin Hood. Or so it reminds of, in the Disney animated classic…swanky.

Doug Jones

can I join the band… I have a ukulele and just recently bought an ocarina at a craft fair…

Dennis Jones

…if you can play that Joe Brown song on the uke, you’re in!

Bigonjee Boi

Very inspiring. Reminds me of Hoosiers when they win the championship.

Dennis Jones

…do ya think? …I was afraid my plot line was just a bit thin.

Don Jones

I shop iTunes everyday hoping to pick up that classic WeaselBoy tune “Bit-O-Honey.”

Dennis Jones

…as much as I would like to claim that song, that one’s not mine… that one belonged to Pete…

Jason Bourne

Maybe I’ll be a Weasel Whisperer one day sooner or later…

Jon Slone

Hey Dennis, I need a website. Can you recomend someone good and on the low side? Also, any tips or things I should avoid? I asked you this before and you said to go to blogger.com. But isn’t a blog different from a web page? I may be wrong. I just need a little help. Thanks.

Bernard

Oh my God! Now it’s YouTube….why aren’t you acting OUR age? There is no telling where this could end. Better get out your Ross Fro cuz I can see you at all the Art’s & Craft store openings now! Actually, I’m looking forward to following your fame on tour…saw an old van along the road I might buy and fix up. Yepper! Gonna be a Jones Bros. groupie.

roballoo

Good job on the videos. The colors on this really pop.Great use of the interwebs. Wonder if this will lead to a how-to book deal?

Jason Bourne

Yea, do How-to on YouTube also!

Dennis Jones

Bernard, I dug around and found my Bob Ross wig… still fits great!

Dennis Jones

Jon… up there on the left of my page is a link to “WeaselBoy”… that is a Blogger page… you can put up pictures, you can write stuff… you can probably accomplish whatever it is you want to do for free with it… most web designers charge buckets of money to build web sites… you could figure Blogger out and manage it yourself for free…

Bernard

Jon, Take it from Link ( Mod Squad ) and go ahead and give blogger a try. If nothing else you’ll have something to show someone somewhere until you can get a regular website. I’m actually switching from a website to a blog instead, but then I’m used to going the other way. Aghhh!! Is that a mouse your holding Den? I just saw that!

Dennis Jones

…yes, that picture was from back when I first starting digital painting, I didn’t have a Wacom tablet yet, and I was just using a mouse…

Doug Jones

You wore that mouse down to whiskers… have you worn out a Cintiq pen yet?

Dennis Jones

…yep, I still have that old mouse in a shed out back… sometime I visit Mr. Jingles and watch him do tricks…

Doug Jones

now the official Brother Jones follow up question: …Really?

Bigonjee Boi

i know its not the same, but i have some gerbils you can try out…

Dennis Jones

…rumor has it you’re planning to join WeaselBoy and play lead guitar in the upcoming Awesomeness Dittos Concert Tour…

Bigonjee Boi

…as long as we cover some wham…

Dennis Jones

…we’ll open our concerts with a cover of Careless Whisper…that oughta get the crowd really worked up and ready for a rockin’ show!

Jason Bourne

Yea, rock’em bop’em and soc’em!

Bernard

Lol!

roballoo

Will there be any concert videos of this Wham! tribute band on You Tube?

Dennis Jones

…no, but there will be a table in the back of each concert with WeaselBoy video cassettes and 8-tracks available for purchase…

Mac Artist

Just came across your illustration “Stress-less Parenting” in Enrichment magazine. Been a big fan and great to see you are doing so well. We are at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, surrounded by Ozarkians. However, a native of Hoosier Land and still big a fan of the Colts. Saw your bio on these two lands! Love your illustrations and appreciate all you are doing out there. Great youtube video! Blessings – Jennifer Cook

Don Jones

Den, I put your web address on that illustration you did for Enrichment magazine. Looks like people DO READ the fine print.

I’m Seeing Spots

December 8, 2008

BaseballFilm

This baseball picture is part of a spot illustration I did for the assignment I’ve been working on for the past month or so. I did a quick count this morning and I’m approach 200 spot illustrations for the project, and I’ve still got a whole bunch left to do.

You can see the YouTube Video here.

The Comments

Bernard

whoa, that’s like 4-5 per day, everyday? Yikes! that’s allot of cintiq & Photoshoppin’ Must be a huge book?

Don Jones

I like the big views and close-ups edits… back and forth… Another winner!

Doug Jones

I’m still lost in the 60s…. who did that music?

Dennis Jones

…Doug, that’s an old Phil Keaggy song from I think the 80’s somewhere…

Doug Jones

so I’m still two decades behind…

Doug Jones

For me, this one was the most fun to watch. I liked seeing it build from the ground up… literally…

Dennis Jones

…don’t forget your fabulous “Socmo In Living Color” opening… with just a bit more spit and polish, we’ll be ready to launch our Brother Jones Music Video channel…

Bernard

I hear ya Doug…me too. Dennis, are freehanding the color blocks in place w/Cintiq or making masks as you go along?

Dennis Jones

…Bernard, I am trying to keep my process just as simple as possible… 3 layers… the middle layer is the line work in multiply mode… the other two layers are in normal mode… I block color in UNDERNEATH the line work and then put the finishing touches on the TOP layer… no masks…

Bernard

Yes! Simple is very good…because I probably don’t have to tell you that I am simple! Seriously, thanks for all you do to help us computer noobies.

Jason Bourne

Simple is better…I prefer this way of life also. This is great.
