Vintage Leather Aviator Cap

I think maybe the only thing cooler looking than a World War 2 Tank Helmet is a vintage leather aviator cap. I was recently asked to make a guest appearance in a fellow artist’s “how to” drawing book and was asked to contribute a couple of tips and a few pictures for it. Given total… Continue Reading “Vintage Leather Aviator Cap”

Overly Optimistic

For several days last week, the sun made a rare appearance at our house. I decided winter was officially over and proceeded to take down my snow fence and store it for summer. As I look out my front door today, I think I… Continue Reading “Overly Optimistic”

Turn Based Strategy Games

When I have time to kill, I will occasionally fire up the iPad and play a game or two… and my favorite kind are turn based strategy. The developers of the game I am playing right now ( HeavenStrike Rivals ) are currently running a promotion and awarding game bonus to… Continue Reading “Turn Based Strategy Games”


It has been a long, Nordic winter here in northeastern Indiana… but the sun is out today and it gives me hope that snow season is almost over. One last viking made an appearance on my drawing board on his way out of town.

2013/2014 Digital SketchBook

In a desperate attempt to catch up to present times, I have combined my 2013 and 2014 sketchbooks into one volume. These digital sketchbooks can be viewed on most modern devices using the free Kindle App. The Dennis Jones 2013-14 Digital Sketchbook is now… Continue Reading “2013/2014 Digital SketchBook”

Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus 2

Over the years, I have purchased several types of styluses in a futile attempt to turn my Ipad into a fabulous, portable, mini Wacom Cintiq. I have finally come to the conclusion, (sadly)… that’s just never going to happen… but Wacom is making the Ipad… Continue Reading “Wacom Intuos Creative Stylus 2”

Crazy Horse

Yes, it is Chief Crazy Horse riding his… well… crazy horse.

Guardians Of The Galaxy

I still have not seen Guardians Of The Galaxy, but it’s on my “to do” list… I have it written in right under “make varsity football team”…

Realistically Speaking

I’ve made a living for a lot of years drawing ridiculously goofy pictures, but every once in a while a project comes along where I’m asked to ratchet up the realism just a bit.


The carnival was in town, and even though William Wallace had an epic battle scheduled for the next morning, he and his friends still visited the face painting booth. …the last picture is a little something for Hearthstone players. đŸ™‚

Today Is May 4th

Today is May Fourth, so for all the Star Wars fans out there… MAY THE FOURTH BE WITH YOU.

Big Chief Tablet

It’s been a while since we last checked in with Big Chief Tablet and his rambunctious band of TuhTONKa Fire Engines. Here we see DancesWithWeasels checking for tornadoes in Oklahoma. The last tornado that rolled through blew away all the milk cows… it was an udder… Continue Reading “Big Chief Tablet”

Magnus StormWeasel Music Video

Last summer Magnus begged me to let him spend the night at my nephew Janson’s house. Against my better judgement I let him and look what has happened… a  music video. What next? Dancing With The Stars? Good job, Janson!

Artist Outreach Ministry

One of the reasons I like our church is because it has an ARTIST OUTREACH MINISTRY!! Included in each weeks bulletin is a piece of artist sketch paper (labeled “notes” for some odd reason) and a complimentary drawing pen! Not every church would make this sort of effort… Continue Reading “Artist Outreach Ministry”

Creature Feature

I had a few spare minutes to play last night, so I threw a little color onto a scribble from my sketchbook.
