Wall Art

Getting Ready For Easter

The folks at Living Stones Church are getting their new building ready for Easter Sunday, and the Nursery, Toddler and Preschool rooms will all have a bit of my artwork in them.

I traveled up to Crown Point, Indiana to meet them and they told me they wanted the pictures for these particular rooms to follow the creation story. I took some photos, took some wall measurements and headed back home. I fired up Photoshop, created files with the proper room dimensions, added a 5.5 and 6 foot guy for scale, scratched out some roughs, sent them in for approval and then proceeded to create the finished artwork.

I’m pretty excited to go back some Sunday and see these three classrooms full of kids!

Dennis Jones Custom Wallpaper

Several different companies have used my artwork to create custom vinyl wall coverings with. The one thing they all seemed to have in common? By the time the artwork was purchased, the printer printed it and the installers installed it, the final product seemed to end up being rather expensive.

Over the years, many churches have emailed me personally asking to purchase some of that Dennis Jones Bible Character “Wallpaper” …but sadly, no such product exists…

…but a church in Oklahoma was persistent when I told them no such product existed and together we figured out a more affordable “do it yourself” delivery vehicle for a vinyl “wallpaper”… FATHEAD… yes, those people that do the restickable vinyl football players.

We tried one as an experiment (Jonah) …it seemed to work pretty well, so we are moving forward with a few more. When their remodel is complete, I will get some photos of the finished rooms and post them here.

Who knows… Dennis Jones Custom Bible Wallpaper might be just around the corner! ha

Custom Church Wall Art

I recently had the opportunity to create illustrations for the walls of a really great church down in Memphis, Tennessee. They sent me photographs that mapped out all the appropriate wall dimensions. I imported those pictures into photoshop and roughly figured out what the different components would be for each illustration. After the wall ideas were approved, I executed the finished art and sent it to the printer. The illustrations were then printed out in sections and installed to the wall. Here are a series of pictures that show the Noah wall in progress.
