Hi everyone! I have searched for art by Jeff Jones on the internet plenty of times. Sure I find some stuff, a couple of ink drawings, maybe a painting or two, but most of the stuff is low resolution and the stuff I could find was limited to a handfull of images. Maybe I am not searching the correct way?
Also, searching for artbooks of his, I found a couple the are out of print and not available for purchace. There is a newer one but I don't know if it is good or not. It's a shame that such an artist like Jeff Jones is scorned.
Anyway, could anyone help? At least some insight on any of the artbooks would be good.
Jeff has not been well. He hasn't been scorned.
His website is down but the internet archive still has the remnants: http://web.archive.org/web/200801260...paintings.html
Some image links are broken, but many remain.
At least Icarus tried!
My Process: Dead Rider Graphic Novel (Dark Horse Comics) plus oil paintings, pencils and other goodies:
My "Smilechild" Music. Plus a medley of Commercial Music Cues and a Folksy Jingle!:
Yes I know Jeff isn't well. I remember reading on his website before it went down that a lot of his things were being confiscated and that he/she will be living in a nursing home but that new art was on the way. Pity really because, in the words of Frank Frazetta, Jeff Jones is the greatest fantasy painter alive.
As for the artbook, yes, that was the one, thanks for the crit on it.
SHE. jeffrey catherine jones.
Shes been financial unwell too, and yes helathwise too.
Frank frazetta was right.
try comic collectors site, thats where a lot of her work has ended up , with comic collectors. more than fine art collectors.
comicartfans.com , use the search function.
theres a post by me, a big one I think the artist in alphabetic order thread of hers.
check it out.
According to someone who knows her on the Kaluta yahoo list, she's getting pieces back together, but the web presence is a lower priority right now.
just wanted to add a 2nd on thatIf the book you're referring to is Arnie Fenner's "The Art of Jeff Jones," yes, it's good. Actually, it's great.
Along with the sad it's nice to know some of the good things surrounding Jones' life right now, putting the pieces back together. I hope things go well for her. I can't imagine an artist like that not getting a lot of work right away!
I'll get the book since you guys hold it in such high regard, I've trusted the general CA judgement and I haven't been let down.
Here are a few old paperback covers he did for the Zebra/Kensington series of Howard stories released in the 70s. The only one I have is "The Sowers of the Thunder" which has interior drawings by Roy Krenkel. They're not the best Howard stories, but the covers are wonderful. You might find some on eBay or Amazon.
Who Is Jeff Jones again, I never heard of this artist.
dbclemons:Thanks man! I've never seen those around!
The Ragged Claws blog has a very nice collection of some rare short-run comics that Jones made for various publishers. Look for some old magazine copies of National Lampoon from the early 70s ("Idyll",) or Heavy Metal from the early 80s ("I'm Age.")
Whatever her health problems may be, I sincerely wish her all the best. I miss seeing her work. It's very inspiring.
