So... I got this idea in the shower... at the YMCA... is that too much information? :o) I was thinking of the word PHOBIA and other words that sound the same. Faux worked for the first part of the word. Ita helps toa have a fakea Italian accenta fora the lasta part... beea. The more I thought of it, the better I liked the idea. I couldn't wait to get started.

I usually draw everything in place when I do an illustration, but I found myself drawing various parts of this. I scanned the parts into Photoshop and then arranged them so they looked like what I had in mind. Add some color and it's done! Lotsa funa for mea!

Q. Why did Beethoven get rid of his chickens?
A. They kept saying Bach, Bach, Bach...

It always takes SocMo 30 minutes to order an ice cream cone because he keeps CHANGing his mind.

It looks like I will not have much time for IlloFriday this week, so I whipped out this idea. Part of it was done while talking on the phone... a bit of multitasking

SocMo enjoys visiting the FARM... but the animals are always glad to see him leave. Click on picture to ENLARGE... you'll be glad you did!
Illustration Friday is where I tend to experiment with stuff. This week I rediscovered my old, long forgotten Rapidograph pen, and used it on the line work. Then I played around with digital watercolor for the first time. Fun stuff... but I have a LOT to learn here.

New Fall Line Up!

As summer fades away, we bid adieu to West Nile mosquitoes and them nasty little ticks. I am hoping to have a bit more time to post fun things here on JONESAPALOOZA. To kick things off, I have put up a brand new header. Let me know what you think of it. Thanks for stopping by... come back often to see what is new. No telling what you will find!

When SocMo eats spaghetti... nobody is SAFE!
