Woodstock

On cold Northeastern Indiana nights as we sit in front of our blazing fireplace, my wife will occasionally ask me why I’m just staring into the fire. I always say, “because I know each one of those sticks of wood personally.” Every fall I tromp into the… Continue Reading “Woodstock”

Kokomo-Con 2014

…well, uhm, ok… so I have now finally, OFFICIALLY participated in a Comic-Con and it was… uhm… interesting… in a bunch of odd and peculiar ways… and I probably won’t be doing it again for a long, long time…

Paypal + Internet = Danger!!

I have discovered an extremely alarming situation concerning Paypal and the internet. Let’s take a random example… an unsuspecting fellow is haphazardly looking at things on the internet and stumbles upon a page for an Indiana Comic-Con that is taking place an hour away from his house. One keyboard click leads to another and badda-bing… Continue Reading “Paypal + Internet = Danger!!”

Walk Into My Future Day

Yesterday was “Walk Into My Future” day at Huntington University. I would conservatively estimate that there were 47 to 48 gazillion kids there. The university had all sorts of things for these youngsters to learn, see and do… and one of those things was a ten minute, how… Continue Reading “Walk Into My Future Day”

The Old See With Me Bible

In 2005, Zondervan and I created the See With Me Bible. The concept was to tell Bible stories with pictures only, no text, a wordless Bible… a concept that was perhaps a bit too abstract for the time. After a few years, the See With Me Bible… Continue Reading “The Old See With Me Bible”

The Hidden Treasure

Hey, there’s a new Big-Talkin’ Brother Jones Bible Story called The Hidden Treasure and it’s now available in the iTunes Store! For those of you that may not know, I am one of three brothers and we have worked together on projects all of our lives. Before… Continue Reading “The Hidden Treasure”

The Brother Jones Blog

It was December 2004 and the Jones clan had gathered in Missouri to celebrate Christmas together. While there, my nephew Keegan told my two brothers and me that he had built a blog for us. We said, “Hey that’s great! …what’s a blog?” Blogging was… Continue Reading “The Brother Jones Blog”

Slightly Steampunked

I am the proud owner of an old wooden chair that belonged to my Grandma and Grandpa Grantham. It came from the corner of their old smoke house where it sat dilapidated, covered in dirt, boxes and mud-dobber nests. I, of course, loved it… Continue Reading “Slightly Steampunked”

Guitar Center

I’ve had this guitar torn apart, stripped down, cobbled up and sitting in my studio for at least two years now. One way or another, I’m finishing it this weekend.

The Krazy Kat Is Back

I have a Facebook friend from Russia who makes great little dimensional creatures. Here is one she created that is modeled after my old crazy cat picture. Do yourself a favor, visit her page and enjoy her work for a while. You can visit… Continue Reading “The Krazy Kat Is Back”

Hogan’s Heroes

When I was a kid, I really enjoyed watching Hogan’s Heroes on TV, so it was pretty exciting when this job rolled across my desk. The magazine article is built around the old television show and the editor originally just wanted me to draw… Continue Reading “Hogan’s Heroes”

TROUBLE! On The Road

There’s a new BROTHERJONESBIGTALKIN’ Bible Story Book available in iTunes!! You can take a look at it HERE.

My Humble Beginning As A “Professional” Artist

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… I had completed my freshman year of college and needed a summer job. My brother-in-law, Larry, (a plumber in Kansas City) said I could come dig ditches for him. I had seen construction workers… Continue Reading “My Humble Beginning As A “Professional” Artist”

Yeah, Toast

Most every morning for me begins with toast and black coffee, so the Heywood Banks video below is pretty typical of how I start the day…

Nailed It!

One summer during my college years, I helped my Uncle Roy frame walls onto the back porch of his lake house. My cousin Lynn and I got one massive wall done, but the studs were not on 18 inch centers (or something like that)… Continue Reading “Nailed It!”
